Victoria Louise Robinson, age 76 of Saint Joseph, Michigan died peacefully at her home on Thursday, May 27, 2021 after a long illness.
Vicki was in poor health for a number of years, however most people that knew her would never know how sick she was. She always put others before herself and gave her all on everything she did. Vicki worked as the office manager for Freeway Veterinary Clinic in Stevensville, followed by her position as the Event Coordinator for the Boulevard Hotel and Conference Center in Saint Joseph. In her retirement, Vicki was very involved with dog rescue. She spent countless hours volunteering, fundraising and even fostering dogs until suitable homes could be found. Vicki leaves behind two precious dogs of her own, George and Nina who never left her side.
Vicki was an amazing cook and wonderful hostess. She loved to have friends and family visit and cooking was her way of showing her love. Raised in Texas, her Southern hospitality never left her and anyone lucky enough to be invited into her home left with a full stomach and plenty of laughs.
Vicki is survived by her husband Roger Robinson, who was the love of Vicki’s life. Vicki adored Roger and loved being his wife more than anything. Roger took care of her selflessly and with so much love when her health began to seriously decline, truly a testament to the meaning of marriage.
Vicki was the proud mother to 5 children, Jerry Robbins of Texas, Robbie Robbins of Michigan, Jean Marie Helms (Chris) of North Carolina, Scot Robinson (Laura) of Kansas and beloved daughter Teri Robinson who preceded her in death in 2018. Vicki was also blessed with many beautiful grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Vicki leaves behind many treaured friends, several of whom visited and cared for her almost daily over the last few months. The family is so appreciative of the love and support received.
In keeping with her wishes, no funeral services will be held, but a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In honor of Vicki’s dedication to dog rescue, donations can be made in her memory to: Animal Aid of South Western Michigan, P.O. Box 407 Saint Joseph, MI 49085.Print Obituary & Condolences
