Pioneer Goes to Reward
At the home of Tom O’Dea’s Saturday morning, April 9th, Grandma Robinson died after many weeks of illness. The remains were buried Sunday afternoon in the family graveyard, near the old home place six miles southeast of Caddo. Rev. E. Hotchkin of Durant conducted the funeral.
Grandma Robinson was the mother of C. C. Robinson and Mrs. M. A. Braudrick and had many other relatives in the community. She was the wife of Rev. Calvin Robinson, who was a Presbyterian missionary to this country and who died about twenty years ago. She would have been 82 years of age had she lived until May. She was born near Poteau and was one of the early pioneers to this part of the country. Her first husband was named Trice, after whose death she married Rev. Robinson.
Grandma Robinson was a rugged Christian character. She was a friend to those in need. She had an abiding faith in her Lord and she was beloved by the whole community. The last few years she made her home with Tom O’Dea and rarely left the place.
The funeral was largely attended by friends and neighbor; many from town went to pay their respects.
The floral offerings were very beautiful and attested somewhat of the esteem in which she was held.
