Jessie Robertson Obituary
Jessie (Cameron) Robertson, 99, a longtime Quincy resident, died peacefully on the morning of October 8, 2017 surrounded by the love, comfort and care of her family following a brief illness. She was the devoted wife of the late John Robertson Jr. who died in 1983. Born in Glasgow, Scotland, she and her family immigrated to the U.S. aboard the m/v Leviathon when she was 4 years old, landing on Ellis Island. The family quickly settled in Quincy where Jessie soon began her near-lifelong affiliation with the Town River Yacht Club where she and her late husband maintained the books and ledgers on the sailing program for many years. Mrs. Robertson was a 1936 graduate of Quincy High School and furthered her education with a secretarial degree from the former Burnette Secretarial School two years later. For many years she had been an active member of Quincy Point Congregational Church, where she indulged her love of music by singing in the church choir for more than 65 years. She was the beloved mother of John Robertson III and his wife Eileen of Sagamore Beach, Alexander C. Robertson and his wife Karen of Quincy, Elizabeth Robertson of Quincy and William D. Robertson and his wife Antoinette of Sandwich; cherished Nana to 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Relatives and friends are cordially invited to attend her funeral at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 14, in the Quincy Point Congregational Church, 444 Washington St., Quincy.
