Dorothy J. Robinson, 87, passed away after a brave fight with cancer on September 8, 2015. Dorothy was born and lived in Ballston Spa most of her adult life. The past few years she lived in Gansevoort with her niece.
She was the daughter of the late LeRoy and Hazel Robinson. Dorothy retired from Maplewood Manor in Ballston Spa. Most everyone knew her around town as the “the little lady with the dog”. She enjoyed walking everywhere. She was an avid reader. Dorothy went to Disneyworld many times with family and enjoyed attending dog agility trials as often as possible. Dot was always up for a nice sunny ride or a trip to camp to sit by the lake.
Dorothy is predeceased by two brothers, Dr. Elmer L Robinson of Saratoga Springs and Robert Robinson of Dexter, Maine. She is survived by her sister Marylou Oken of Richmond, Virginia and many loving nieces and nephews.
Dot was an animal lover. Her heart belonged to her dog Cody and a BIG black cat.
Memorial contributions may be made to local rescue group CDHA, PO Box 11330, Loudonville, NY 12211.
There will be a celebration of her life along with her brother Elmer, who is recently deceased, with family on September 18 at 84 Dyer Switch Road, Saratoga Springs from 4pm-7pm.
