A lightly edited partial transcription of the Wilsonville column on page 8 article in the 22 Mar 1900 Waterford Star newspaper.


Death again has entered our midst and taken for its victim on of our most highly esteemed young ladies, 
in the person of Miss Ida Robinson, eldest daughter 
of Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Robinson, the death of whom occurred on Thursday morning last.

The funeral took place on Saturday morning and was largely attended. The funeral services were conducted 
by her pastor, Rev. Clark, assisted by Elder Haviland.

The speaker tried to emphasize upon all the comfort which the Gospel can give and earnestly tried to urge those who were not children of God to come to Him, 
so when the call shall come to them they will be ready 
to meet their loved ones in heaven.

The pall-bearers were young friends of deceased: 
C. Walker, C. Kettle, W. Smith, G. Cole, O. Haviland 
and F. Riddle.

Deceased was highly esteemed and loved by all who 
knew her. She indulged in no doubtful amusements. 
Her influences were always good and uplifting.

She leaves behind a devoted father, a loving mother, 
and two sorrowing sisters, who have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.
