Victoria Perry Robinson

Born in New Haven, Conn., she was the daughter of the late James Perry and the late Ethelyn Wanna Perry.

Victoria earned her undergraduate degree in anthropology from Penn State and her master’s degree in ancient history and classical languages, also from Penn State.

For many years, she was an Insurance Examiner, most recently for Admiral Insurance Company.

She was a longtime member of the Episcopal Church of the Advent in Kennett Square where she served on the Vestry, Outreach, and Altar Guild committees. She was also an elder in the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate tribe.

She enjoyed spending time with family, reading, listening to Opera and classical music, going to museums, and doing community outreach work in the town she loved so much.

She will be remembered for her sense of humor, her unyielding thirst to learn everything about history and science, as well as her work within the Kennett Square community.  Notably, Tori was in charge of the rummage sale at church and it was through this event that underserved members of the community were able to purchase basic necessities. More importantly, this was where she met lifelong friends she called “the Rummage Sale crew.”

In addition to her husband Michael, she is survived by one daughter, Alix Gilbert and her husband Joseph of North East, Md., and one son, James Robinson and his wife Sarah of Wilmington. She has one grandson on the way.

You are invited to visit with Tori’s family and friends from 10-11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, at the Episcopal Church of the Advent 401 N. Union St. Kennett Square, PA 19348.  Her memorial service will follow at 11. Interment will be held privately. Contributions in her memory may be made to the University of Pennsylvania’s Museum for ongoing research and discovery in the field of archeology via the Annual Fund program.

Arrangements are by Matthew J. Grieco of Grieco Funeral Home & Crematory Inc. (484-734-8100) To view her online tribute, please visit
