Miriam Jean Rolof Robinson of L’Anse, MI passed away on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at Bayside Village in L’Anse. She was 94.

Miriam was born March 24, 1924 in Copper City, MI, daughter of Albert and Rose (Schmidlin) Rolof. She grew up in Pequaming and graduated from L’Anse High School in 1943. Miriam worked in a defense plant in Detroit during WWII, then returned to L’Anse and worked as a secretary at Northwoods Timber Co. She married Charles Robinson on June 25, 1945 at Sacred Heart Church in L’Anse. They lived in Arlington, Virginia for one year, then moved to Wayne, MI, where they raised their children, retiring back to L’Anse in 1981. Miriam and Charlie enjoyed traveling together, playing card games with friends, and visiting their kids and grandkids.

Since the 1970’s Miriam has done volunteer work for St. Vincent de Paul, Bishop Baraga Shrine, Muscular Dystrophy, Sacred Heart School, and Christian Women’s Breakfast for Sacred Heart. She enjoyed sewing, cooking, music, jigsaw puzzles, games, and being around people with humor.
