On Wednesday April 24, 2019 at Yale New Haven Hospital, the immortal soul of Robin Weed Whitbread quietly and gently relinquished the bond with its earthly container.
Born in Westport, CT, the only daughter to Fred and Margaret (Peg) McBeth Weed. Graduating from Southern Connecticut State University, Robin worked in the office of a number of Insurance Firms (no free advertising) over the years. She married Edward Whitbread in February 1977 and they produced one child, their son Michael Whitbread.
A self-described “Beach Bum”, Robin loved to swim in the ocean and relax by the seashore. Her only other wish was a simple one, to be surrounded by her family, close friends and, of course, her dogs.
Robins' memory lives on with her son Michael and his longtime girlfriend Gabby, a cousin David Wallace of Ansonia, CT, her oldest and dearest friend Regina Kiska of Westport, CT, step son Robert Whitbread of Fairfield, CT, step daughter in law Kathleen Whitbread and step grandsons Matthew and Samuel Whitbread, step granddaughter Allie Currier, and friend Robert Wright of Greenwood, DE.
Please join with us in celebration of Robin’s life on Thursday May 2nd at SBC Restaurant, 33 New Haven Ave, Milford, CT from 12 noon until 2pm or thereabouts. Anyone wishing to say a few words may do so during this time. Tears are allowed, encouraged even, but only tears of joy. The family was compassionately cared for by the Cody-White Funeral Home, 107 Broad St., Milford, CT.
