Norma Robinson passed away September 20, 2012 at Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

Norma was born on April 21, 1922 in Brockton, MA to Ben and Ella Stone and attended high school at Thayer Academy in Braintree, MA. She then earned a Bachelor's Degree in history at Brown University.

For many years thereafter she was active with Brown's Office of Admissions in performing alumni interviews of prospective Monterey Peninsula students.

While living on the East Coast, Norma was always very athletic. Her father, Ben Stone, was a founder of Foot Joy and Norma was one of the first women golfers in the country. She was also one of the first downhill skiers. When Austrians initially came to the U.S. to establish the ski industry, Norma was one of the very first pupils at the first resort in North Conway, New Hampshire. She skied the White Mountains of New Hampshire before there were any ski lifts.

Norma moved to Pebble Beach in 1970. She was active in the Auxiliary of the Community Hospital, and was a founding member of the local chapter of Hadassah. Norma became a life member of Hadassah, was active in fund raising, and was on the Board of Directors. While living here she also worked at Fourtane Jewelers and the Crossroads Jewelers.

Norma is survived by her son, Tom Robinson of Pebble Beach; her daughter, Barbara Robinson and Barbara's husband, Dr. Douglas Pinney of Hingham, MA. Norma will be missed by her many friends and family on the Monterey Peninsula and in the greater Boston area.

A small private graveside service has already been held at Seaside Funeral Home in Seaside, CA.

The family requests that, in lieu of flowers, a donation in her name be made to the SPCA for Monterey County, P.O. Box 3058, Monterey, CA 93942-3058. Visit: www.seasidefunerals.com to offer online condolences. Published in The Monterey Herald on October 7, 2012
