Sister ROBB was converted to Christ while quite young and joined the M.E. Church but later united with the M.P. Church, and continued faithful to the Lord and her church until death called her from labor to reward.The body was brought back to Osceola for funeral and burial.On account of work on the interior making the church unfit for use, through the kindness of our M.E. Brethren, used their church for the services which were conducted by her Pastor, Rev. J.C. Leonard, assisted by Rev. E. Tillotson, after which the body was laid by the side of her husband in the beautiful Maple Hill Cemetery, there to await the resurrection morn.The bereaved have the sympathy of the community in their hour of sorrow and loss.
Dear Mother, thou has gone before us; We no more thy voice shall hear; Gone to that bright world above us, Free from every pain and care. Yes, we know that God is wisdom; Brings affliction to us all; And we humbly bow before Him, Wait to hear His tender call. List! Oh, hear the angel welcome, As our dear one soars above; And we know that God has taken Her to dwell where all is love.
