Obituary of Robin Jean Burdge
Robin Jean Burdge (nee Musgrave) of Freehold passed away peacefully on Thursday March 2, 2023, at the Manor in Freehold Township.
Robin was a lifelong resident of Freehold and a graduate of Freehold High School Class of 1967. She married her husband of 53 years, George A. Burdge, Jr. on November 2, 1968, at the First Presbyterian Church of Freehold. She was active in the church in various positions including deacon, treasurer, and continuing the Musgrave Family’s support throughout her life.
Upon her graduation from the Brick Computer Science Institute, she became a computer technician with Tel-Star in Princeton, NJ. She moved on to Perkin-Elmer in Oceanport, NJ in the early 1980’s, which eventually became Concurrent Computer Corporation. Rising to a position as instructor until an on-the-job injury forced her early disability retirement due to a severe back injury.
Robin enjoyed summers at her backyard pool, an oasis where she frequently entertained family and friends, and wintering while overlooking Florida Bay in Marathon in the Florida Keys.
Robin was predeceased by her father, Ralph George Musgrave Sr.; mother, Martha Catherine (Miller) Musgrave; sister, Virginia Louise “Ginny” Musgrave; Uncle Harold Clarke Musgrave, Jr. and granddaughter, Peyton Isabella Burdge.
