Sarah Eva Stott was the ninth child and first girl in a family of twelve children. She was born August 27, 1907 in Meadow, Utah, to Alison Alger Stott and Eliza Jane Bushnell. Her father had said he would buy a new hat when he finally got a girl. When she was born, a group of ladies who were quilting in the neighborhood. They saw her father go up the street with a new hat, so they went over to the house to see if he really had a new daughter.

In her youth she enjoyed riding horses and going to the field with her father. She went to grade school in Meadow and high school in Fillmore. Later she worked for Dr. Baker in Fillmore. It was at this time she met her future husband, Ancil Robison, at a dance in the Old Capitol.

They were married September 12, 1928 in Salt Lake City, Utah and made their home in the house where Ancil was born and raised. Ancil died in 1962, but she continued living in the same house.

They had eight children and twenty-two grandchildren. Her grandchildren all love her, and half of the neighbor children called her grandma. She always had cookies of something good for all of them to eat.

She has worked in both the ward and stake Primary, in the ward Sunday School and in the Relief Society.

Sarah Eva Stott died December 1, 1987 at the hospital in Delta. She is buried next to her husband in the Fillmore City Cemetery.
