Marie B. Robedee (nee Halpin) passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday, August 25, 2020.
Marie was born on December 24, 1943 in Orange, NJ to James and Catherine (nee Higgins) Halpin.
Marie is predeceased by her parents and brother, James Halpin whom she adored.
Marie and her loving husband of 49 years, Hal Robedee created a special life in Middletown, NJ. They enjoyed travel, long talks in the morning over coffee, watching the birds and critters in their backyard, but above all seeing their 6 grandchildren grow up and relishing in even their smallest accomplishments.
To know Marie, was to know her devotion to her family. Every decision in her life prioritized her children, husband, siblings and extended family over herself. And if you had shown any kindness, small or great to her family, you were rewarded in abundance with her love and respect.
Her compassion, kindness and generosity of spirit made her the most beautiful soul to anyone who had the privilege to know her and be in her confidence.
Marie was very proud of her many years of work as a Security Specialist for Mitre Corporation where she worked her way up from a receptionist after being a devoted mother and homemaker for 15 years.
First and foremost Marie was a Mom. She helped raise her younger brother and sister before having two daughters of her own, who she showered with affection until her very last moment.
She was known to brag in excess about each and every one of her grandchildren and loved them with all her heart.
Marie was an irreplaceable light in this world and is survived by her heartbroken family:
Husband, Hal Robedee; daughters, Denise Argentino and Danielle Walsh, sisters and brothers-in-law, Patricia and Walter Tyter and Carol and Nick Corvino; sister-in-law Joyce Halpin; grandchildren, Allison, Sydney and Gabrielle Argentino, Patricia, Rebecca and Jack Walsh; loved nieces and nephews and friends.
