      Elvah Marie Abbott Robson
      Birth: Aug. 8, 1916
      Death: Feb. 12, 2008

      Robson, Elvah Marie Abbott
      Rochester, New York and Hancock, Vermont, died peacefully on February 12, 2008, in Dublin, Ohio; she was 91 years old. She was born on August 8, 1916 in Babylon, NY, the youngest child of Harold L. Abbott and Alice Hubbell Abbott. The Abbotts moved to Westmoreland, NY where she attended the Westmoreland schools. Her father died of tuberculosis when she was five years old. While attending Westmoreland High School Elvah met her future husband, Wylie Schall Robson, and starred with him in the operetta "Love Pirates of Hawaii". She was a talented athlete in high school and at Cortland Normal School where she obtained her teaching degree. Elvah married Wylie in Westmoreland on July 7, 1940. She raised their four children and managed their six coast-to-coast moves, and the resulting eight different homes as Wylie rose in the ranks of the Eastman Kodak Company. She was a talented seamstress and an outstanding cook. She made her home a welcoming, inclusive haven for her family, her friends and her family's friends. Elvah was a woman of strong faith who was always involved and active in her church. For the last 52 years of her life her church home was Asbury First United Methodist Church in Rochester, New York where she sang in the choir, served as a Trustee, was an active member of the Fifty Plus Class and served on many committees. She was a long-time member of the Sibley chapter of the YWCA. In retirement she and Wylie loved to travel in their RV, to ski, and to visit with family and friends. But most of all they loved to return to their Hancock, Vermont home where their ever-growing family could gather, where there was singing around the campfire and where Elvah's feasts were the outward sign of her generosity, her caring and her love.
      Elvah was predeceased by her husband of 67 years, by her parents and by her brothers Curtis and Marshall. She leaves her four children, Bobbie Brennan, Dick Robson, Bill Robson and Sue Ribaudo, as well as ten grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren.

      There will be a Memorial Service at 2PM on Saturday, April 12, 2008 at Asbury First United Methodist Church, and another at her home in Hancock, Vermont on Saturday, July 5, 2008 (time to be announced). Memorial gifts may be sent to Asbury First United Methodist Church, 1050 East Avenue, Rochester, NY, 14607.
