Marjorie (Marge) Robinson of Ogunquit, ME passed away at the Frisbie Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NH on Friday, January 26, 2018. She was 82.
Mrs. Robinson was born on February 6, 1935 in Quincy, MA to parents Edith and Ainer Bredesen. She graduated from North Quincy High School in 1954. She worked for New England Telephone before becoming a full-time wife and mother.
She married Phillip A. Robinson in 1954 and resided in North Quincy, MA for many years. The Robinsons then moved to Ogunquit, ME where they spent many years enjoying the beach, Perkins Cove, the Marginal Way and Barnacle Billy’s.
Mrs. Robinson was passionate about all animals and loved her French poodles, Frosty, Buff and Captain Midnight. She excelled at training her dogs at both the South Shore Dog Training Club in Quincy, MA and the Weston Dog Training Club in Weston, MA. Mrs. Robinson won many events all over the Northeast with all three dogs. The highlight of her training career came with a victory in the first-ever obedience National Championship in Oklahoma City, OK. When her training days ended, Mrs. Robinson became an American Kennel Club certified obedience judge, and gained a reputation as one of the top judges in the area.
