Provided photo: Charlie and Carol Robishaw were married 71 years ago today. Mr. Robishaw is a retired game warden. Mrs. Robishaw worked as a corrections officer at the Albion Correctional Facility and then in security at Brockport State College.


Carol and Charlie Robishaw are celebrating their 71st wedding anniversary today, May 10th.  In these days, this is especially a cause to celebrate.

For long-time Clarendon residents, Carol, 91, and Charlie, 92, this will be their fourth anniversary spent together at The Villages of Orleans.

Charlie has been a resident there for a few years, as was his mother, Evelyn, years before. Carol joined him a few years later, even sharing a room.

For years and years before this, the Robishaws were at the gym three days a week – up and out before 6:30 a.m. regardless of the weather. They believe firmly in quality of life and had worked for it for this very moment! A beam of light in an otherwise dismal scenario.

We love you, Mom and Dad! Happy Anniversary!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom! We are praying for you both.

Our love and prayers also to the staff at The Villages for their dedication and care during this difficult time.

Randy and Joni Robishaw
