Obituary of Elizabeth Lyn Roby

HERKIMER – Elizabeth Lyn Roby, age 33, of Herkimer, New York, passed away Thursday morning, March 9, 2023, in the comfort of her home, surrounded by her loving family and friends. Elizabeth was born in the Town of New Hartford, New York, on November 12, 1989, at St. Luke’s Hospital, the daughter of Douglas and Kathryn Roby. Elizabeth was the baby of the family, growing up with a breathtaking countryside view of the Mohawk Valley. Elizabeth graduated from the Herkimer Central School District with an IEP Diploma, in June, 2011 and continued to receive socialization, health care and enrichment through the Self-Direction program with RCIL in Utica, NY. She was a beautiful, young woman, defying all expectations that she would not survive beyond the age of three, due to numerous health adversities. Her family, friends and great healthcare workers helped her overcome many obstacles, until the day came, when she could no longer battle her lifelong condition. We are all very grateful to the many therapists, doctors, friends and family, who were with us along her journey. Elizabeth is survived by her father and mother, Douglas and Kathryn Roby; her two older brothers, Nicholas Roby (Married to Liz Roby) and Douglas Roby II; her older sister, Sarah Roby; her four nephews, Gavin Roby, Liam Roby, Alexander Roby and Logan Roby. There will not be a Mass or funeral at this time. The family humbly asks that all who read this simply hug and kiss the ones with you now. Tell them you love them. We always believe there’s more time, but time …. Time is so fleeting.
