Wherever Robin Birdie Tripaldi ’97 went, fun could be found. It was through following the fun that Birdie found herself as part of the lift operations crew at Squaw Valley ski resort in Lake Tahoe following graduation from Santa Clara. Eventually, she left the snow and moved back to the Bay Area. In the midst of working all day and attending law school at night, Birdie created a product that was featured on national TV and sold at the Container Store and Amazon: Luxe Bag Care acrylic purse hangers. Ready for a new adventure, Birdie met Dave, started a family, and settled in Alamo. In addition to her family, Birdie loved many things, from her pup Mortadella and Giants games to making tortellini with her sisters and quoting ’80s movies. Birdie died April 25, 2023, and is survived by family, including husband David Tripaldi ‘97.
