The Progress, Fillmore, Utah, Friday, March 13, 1925:




Last Saturday afternoon, March 7th, Mrs. Mattie Keith Robison quietly answered the summons of death as a result of an acute attack of heart trouble. For several years Mrs. Robison has not enjoyed the best of health, due to that complaint and the past few months her condition has been serious.

Mrs. Robison was forty-eight years old, and is survived by her husband, Mr. J. Alfred Robison and the following children: Paul Robison, Keith Robison, Mrs. Ruth Bunker, Eleanor Robison, Alonzo Robison, Kathleen Robison, John Robison and Harold Robison. She is also survived by her mother, Mrs. Sarah Keith, three sisters, Maud Keith, Lucile Israel, Adelle Allan, all of Ashville, North Carolina; and one brother, Will Keith of Alberta, Utah.

Mrs. Robison was born August 17th, 1876 in Ashville, North Carolina. It was there she spent her girlhood days, having moved to Fillmore since her marriage to Mr. Robison, December 19, 1900. Since that time the Robisons have lived continuously in this community and Mrs. Robison has been one of the most beloved and respected ladies in Fillmore. The heart-felt sympathy of the whole community is extended to Mr. Robison and the good family which she has left. The memory of this noble woman need always be a source of pride and inspiration to those near and dear to her.

Funeral services were held in the Fillmore Ward Chapel Monday, March 9th at 2:30 p.m., brother Wells Black presiding. Services were opened with prayer by brother T. Clark Callister. Bishop Joseph F. Anderson was the speaker. F. Earl Stott and Mrs. Stella Day sang a duet, “I Am a Pilgrim”. Music was also furnished by a joint ward choir under the direction of brother Stott. The benediction was offered by brother Lorenzo Brunson. Enterment was in the Fillmore cemetery, brother F. Alonzo Robison dedicating the grave.

People of Fillmore will long remember Mrs. Mattie Robison for her hospitable, generous, cheerful disposition. And during her long period of illness those closely associated with her cannot forget her extreme patience.
