    Marge was such an incredible lady. She always made me feel special when we would go for visits and made sure I got my fair share of the bacon at breakfast. Whether it was a litter of kittens, the Lancer dance down Ocean Ave or the boat rides, there was always something fun going on. Our family thought the world of our Aunt Marge. Love to all. Tim

  2. My wife, Beth, and I, one of the older “Rochester Robinsons”, got to know Aunt Marge better as young adults. In fact, we still talk about her from time to time. More about that later but first a quick story. In 1971 Beth and I were in the process of moving from the Bronx to Upper Montclair, NJ when the phone in our apartment rang early one morning. It was Marge calling with the news that one of her relatives was having an estate sale. There was a cherry/mahogany dining room table, six chairs, and a buffet that she thought we should come see “right away” before the sale got underway. Beth was teaching that day, so I borrowed a friend’s VW stationwagon (not a van) and drove out to the south shore to take a look. Marge was there waiting when I arrived and showed me the furniture which was gorgeous. “You and Beth will have this for the rest of your lives”, she said. ” Let me see what I can do.” Off she went to negotiate, returning moments later to proudly exclaim, “Done deal__ $700!” We put the buffet in the back of the VW, tailgate down, lashed the table on the roof, upsidedown, legs up, and tied the chairs to the legs. By the way, did I mention that the VW was so old that it had to be jump started___in reverse!? Anyway, I wish I had a picture of Marge’s face as I drove away. I took the Southern State to the Cross Island, over the Throgs Neck to the Cross Bronx, then over the GW and on to Upper Montclair. At 7:00 that night Marge called, “Tell me you got there in one piece!” Six children of her own and here she is worrying about the furniture and me!, And just as she predicted, It is still beautifully ensconced in our dining room in Rochester, our fifth home since we bought it and the centerpiece for many family celebrations and holidays.This explains why we think often of Marge.
    Whenever Rob and I would visit Massapequa, Marge graciously welcomed us to the blessed chaos of her family with six children.She and I shared a special bond of being proud alumnae of Marymount College, Tarrytown. But our most endurung memory centers on Marge’s commitment to her marriage and devotion to her family. She was unabashedly and justifiably proud of all of her children, what they achieved and who they became. Her life was not always easy, but when Rob and I were there, she was unfailingly upbeat and seemingly unburdened. Her grace and courage should forever be an inspiration to all who knew her.
    With love and sympathy, Rob and Beth
