Born in Westport, she was the only daughter of Fred and Margaret (Peg) McBeth Weed. Graduating from Southern Connecticut State University, Robin worked in the office of a number of insurance firms 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.

She is survived by son Michael and his longtime girlfriend Gabby, a cousin David Wallace of Ansonia, her oldest and dearest friend Regina Kiska of Westport, stepson Robert Whitbread of Fairfield, step daughter-in-law Kathleen Whitbread and step grandsons Matthew and Samuel Whitbread, step granddaughter Allie Currier, and friend Robert Wright of Greenwood, Delaware.

Funeral services have already taken place.
