Sadly, Robin Stille committed suicide in 1996 in Burbank, California (born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and was buried in Rose Hill Cemetery. I don't think any reason has been stated, which is a tragedy to her fans. Her parents were Jere Stille and Sarah Bridge, and she had two sisters, Dawn and Melanie Stille, along with a brother, Jere Scott Stille. She had twin sons, who were named Justin and Joshua Creadick. Her drinking problem on the set of Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama has been mentioned a few times, including this entry for the film in Focus #2: Brinke Stevens
SORORITY BABES IN THE SLIMEBALL BOWL-A-RAMA (1987) -- Linnea Quigley recommended me and Michelle Bauer for this film, originally titled THE IMP. We spent 1-1/2 months working together near San Diego, CA. (Michelle and I shared a hotel room, which was lots of fun. She always had a well-stocked beer cooler!) Since the budget was too low to rent a bowling alley during peak daytime hours, we had to wait till it closed at 9 pm, then shoot all night until 9 am. It was a very rough schedule (imagine eating breakfast at 4 pm every day!), and I was badly injured when I dislocated my knee in a shopping mall fight-scene. Linnea got badly battered, too, when her larger fighting partner (referring to Stille) frequently drank too much vodka and lost her restraint. Despite the many hardships, however, there was good camaraderie and fond memories for our trio.
Here is some information given to me by a director who had Robin audition for one of his movies. The director wishes to remain anonymous, so please do not ask me about this:
"...Robin Stille auditioned for [deleted], though I didn't use her. She seemed very troubled at the time, she told me that her agent was negotiating to get her to return for SPM 2, and the film company passed on using her. Not sure how much it had to do with her suicide, but she was very upset over it.
Because Robin was the only character to survive SPM, she immediately assumed they would need her for the sequel. While she was having her agent call in her demands, they had never planned for her character to be in the sequel, it was an entire new group of girls.
She was never turned down or recast for the sequel. They just never planned on using her in the first place, and it must have hurt when she found out.
This was still around 1988, so it was well before her suicide. I was told by many people that she had alcohol problems and she wasn't a good choice of someone to hire. That was the last year she did any feature film work, so I think it had finally caught up with her. Hollywood is a small town."
On the contrary, we all know that Robin was not the sole survivor of SPM and was re-cast in SPM 2 for Courtney's nightmare sequences. Whether or not they originally intended to have the character of Valerie return in any form is currently unknown to me. Very shocking news, indeed.
Information on the actress is very scarce, but some think that maybe her drinking problem influened her to take her own life, along with the possiblity of her not doing too well in the film business. All in all, she will be greatly missed.

"Inspired by science fiction books, my ultimate childhood dream was to be a xenobiologist -- the first woman on a spaceship to study alien life forms. But by age twelve, I realized the space program wasn't keeping up with my own ambitions. Instead, I opted for oceanography, exploring the earth's last unknown frontier."
-- Brinke Stevens, Focus #2: Brinke Stevens
Brinke Stevens worked two years as an environmental consultant for a nuclear plant near her birthplace of San Diego, CA after receiving a Masters Degree in marine biology. Unsuccessful in finding a science-related job in Los Angeles, Brinke and husband Dave Stevens (The Rocketeer comic artist) divorced, leaving Brinke looking for modeling work to support herself. Brinke started out as an extra in movies, such as ...All the Marbles (1981), Private School (1983), Fatal Games (1984), Star 80 (1983), and This is Spinal Tap (1984), also appearing in Oui, Playboy, and Penthouse magazines. The Slumber Party Massacre (1982) was one of her earlier and longer roles, but Brinke had to decline to having a bigger starring role, due to scheduling conflicts.
Around 1987, Brinke was finally made into a "scream queen" by Fred Olen Ray and David DeCouteau, two directors whom she'd worked on in many movies with, including Nightmare Sisters (1987), Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-o-Rama (1988), Shock Cinema (1991), Warlords (1988), Mob Boss (1990), Haunting Fear (1990), Bad Girls from Mars (1990), Spirits (1991), and Teenage Exorcist (1991). Her status was quickly established, and she is to this very day one of the most popular b-movie scream queens, along with Linnea Quigley, Michelle Bauer, and others.
Her future is still intact and very promising, her filmography very difficult to keep up with indeed!
