Mrs. Hazel T. Robins, Deputy County Recorder, died suddenly Friday morning, February 25, at her office in the County Court House, death being due to coronary occlusion. She had returned to her work Wednesday morning following a few days absence when she was ill with the flu and though she did not feel very good, she thought she was able to be back to work. She suffered the first attack of the heart ailment which caused her death about 10:15 and a doctor was summoned shortly afterwards, but she passed away just before noon, less than two hours after she was stricken. Her husband, Leonard F. Robins was with her but her children did not arrive until after her death.

She had many friends scattered throughout the state, who knew and loved her for her cheerful, happy disposition and who admired her because of her ambition and her fine qualities as a mother, wife and friend.
