Zoe Alice Parker passed away on March 20, 2106, at the age of 96, at her home in Fairfax surrounded by her loving family. Zoe was the fifth child born to James M. Robinson and Xoe Cecilia Schweickhardt Robinson.

Zoe was a devoted wife and mother and a much loved grandmother and great-grandmother. She was an active member of the Catholic Church at Sacred Heart Parish in Fairfax as was her family before her. She dedicated her life to the care of her husband and children. She was an excellent cook, an artist and skilled calligrapher. She was blessed by a large circle of caring friends throughout her life. The love and gratitude we all feel for our families and friends can never be suitable expressed.
