Born in Richland Center, WI
Resided in Anchorage, AK


Francine (Elder) Robinson passed away unexpectedly at her home in Anchorage, Alaska, on Sunday, May 10, 2015. Francine was born on Jan. 11, 1943, to the great joy of Francis and Carol Elder. Francine graduated from Beloit High School and shortly thereafter married the love of her life, Dale Robinson, on June 17, 1962. Dale and Francine embarked on many adventures together during his employment with the U.S. Air Force and they thoroughly enjoyed traveling across the United States. During that time they were blessed with two children, Jeff and Carolyn. An early assignment to Elmendorf Field in Anchorage inspired Dale and Francine to retire there in 1986. They enjoyed spending time at their cabins on the Kenai Peninsula and especially enjoyed fishing for salmon. Francine loved crafting blankets (knitting, crocheting and quilting) while praying for great-grandbabies. She also enjoyed the challenge of gardening in the subarctic climate of Alaska. She raised many dogs through the years and especially adored her Silky Terriers. Francine is survived by her son, Jeff (Diana) Robinson of Anchorage; son-in-law, Richard Cupp of Charlotte, N.C.; three grandchildren, Jorden (Isaac) Hayes, Alex (Elizabeth) Robinson and Rikki Cupp; brother, Terry Elder; brother-in-law, Donnie (Elinor) Robinson; sister-in-law, Janet (Dennis) Looney; and many nieces; nephews; relatives; and friends. Francine was preceded in death by her daughter, Carolyn Cupp; her husband, Dale Robinson; parents, Francis and Carol Elder; and brother, Ronnie Elder. Funeral services will be held at 11a.m. on Saturday, May 23, 2015, at the Pratt Memorial Chapel in Richland Center, Wis. Burial will be beside her husband in the Richland Center Cemetery. Friends may call at the Pratt Memorial Chapel on Saturday, May 23, 2015, from 10 a.m., until service time at 11 a.m.
