Death of Mrs. Robertson
Mrs. Zalida Robertson, died yesterday afternoon at her home on north Seventh street, where she had been gradually failing since her return a couple of weeks ago from Los Angeles.
Zalida Wise was born on May 14, 1840, at Stroundsburg, PA. In 1858 she moved to Iowa City, Iowa, and in 1865 at that place was united in marriage with David P. Robertson. In 1866 they moved to Harrison county, Missouri, where they made their residence for many years.
Her nine children were born to them, eight of whom are still living. They are Daniel of Mantilla, Iowa; John T. of Ridgeway, Mo., Mrs. Emma Sell and Arthur D. of Fredonia, Kas.; Ole J., Oscar C., Zalida C. Judkins and Olive E. Morton of Basin.
"Grandma" Robertson was an enthusiastic worker for the church throughout may years of her life. At an early age she had united with the Baptist church, and she considered it a great privilege to do the work of the Master. She died happy in the hope that He would pronounce her work well done.
She was a good mother, kind neighbor, a woman with a kind word for all, and her many friends will regret that death has come to her even in a ripe old age.
Arrangements for the funeral have not been completed, but it is possible that it will take place tomorrow afternoon.
