Impressive funeral services were held Sunday, April 17, in the Second Ward Chapel for Susannah T. Robison. Bishop Henry Hatton officiated. The opening prayer was offered by Pres. Frank H. Partridge. The Singing Mothers sang beautiful sacred anthems and a male quartette consisting of Thomas Whatcott, Vernon Peterson, Culbert and Linden Robison, sang one number and Mrs. Stella Day and Mrs. Edna Day sang a vocal duet. The speakers were President T. Clark Callister, Peter L. Brunson, James A. Melville, Pres. Joseph F. Finlinson and Dr. Francis Kirkham. The speakers all bore testimony to the exemplary life of the deceased, who always lived up to every principle in her religion. She served as Primary President in Fillmore for a good many years and three of the speakers were boys in her Primary classes; they all told of the influence for good which she had exerted on their lives. She seemed to understand boys especially well and always extended a helping hand. The benediction was offered by Wm. H. Rasmussen.

Mrs. Susannah T. Robison, who died Friday, April 15 at the age of 91 years, was born February 3, 1847 at Milltown, New Jersey, a daughter of David and Rose Collier Turner. She crossed the plains with her parents in 1861. On the trek to Utah with the John Murdock Company, the pioneers lost 18 of their number due to the rigors of the trip, Mrs. Robison recalled recently at a birthday observance in her honor. She also recalled how at the age of 12, she saw Abraham Lincoln and heard him address a gathering in the Cooper Hall in New York. She was married to Benjamin H. Robison in 1863 and the couple settled in Deseret. He died in 1872, leaving her with the task of raising nine children. Mrs. Robison lived in Fillmore for many years, but for the past twenty has lived most of the time with her children, particularly her daughter Mrs. Francis Kirkham at whose home she passed away.

Survivors include three sons, J.H. Robison of Logandale, Nev.; Dr. J.C. Robison of Salt Lake City and George A. Robison of Hinckley; two daughters, Mrs. Alonzo A. Hinckley and Mrs. Kirkham of Salt Lake City; two brothers, Lorenzo Turner of Delta and James Edward Turner of Washington, Utah.
