DIED: Robbins - In this city, on Sunday morning, March 13, 1910, at 12:30 midnight, Mrs. Frederick E. Robbins, aged 36 years, 7 months and 16 days. The news of Mrs. Robbins' demise came to our people with a painful suddenness, as she was thought to be somewhat better. In fact, until 6 o'clock Saturday night the members of her family did not realize that her condition was so precarious. At 10 Mrs. Robbins asked if she could recover, and was told they hoped she might. Then she knew the truth. Although she failed rapidly until the moment of her demise, she was at all times conscious, talking calmly of the hour and article of death, saying with a true Christian's faith, that she was ready to go - and she was. Her death was like one dropping into a sweet peaceful sleep.

Emma (Mansell) Robbins was born on the 27th day of July, 1873, at Boone, Iowa, and was one of nine children born to John and Elizabeth Mansell. She was married to her now sorrowing husband at Seattle, Wash., on the 12th day of March, 1896, in the First M. E. church. The 14th wedding anniversary and the day of her death were separated by only a short half-hour. Four children came to bless the home, two boys and two girls, all of whom survive the mother. The sons are Norman, 13, and Fred 7. The daughters are Martha, 11, and Mabel, 9. In 1899 the Robbins family moved to Ritzville. Mr. Robbins arrived in July, his wife following in August. It was their intention to remain only a few months, but the business of the White River Lumber Co. increased so rapidly all over the eastern part of the state that thoughts of leaving were gradually put aside, for some years at least. In November last, Mrs. Robbins was taken ill, and on the eve of Thanksgiving day she was operated upon, a second operation following within a few weeks. There were times when she seemed somewhat improved, but it seems that she was from day to day growing weaker, and that the disease was from the first surely fatal. Deceased was from girlhood a devout Christian and a member of the M. E. church. She was a member of the Ritzville congregation and president of the M. E. Aid society. Funeral services were held from the M. E. church, Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Rev. Wm. Hoskins, her pastor, officiating. The church could not contain the crowds of people who wished in death to honor her, whom in life they had loved. Interment was at Tacoma. The funeral party left here over the Northern Pacific Tuesday night.
