Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Handy and Mrs. Levi Robbins were called to Jet, Okla., last week by the death on Tuesday of Mrs. Handy's step-mother, Mrs. Rebecca Robbins, whose home for a number of years had been near that city. Deceased was the wife of Ephraim Robbins, who survives her at the advanced age of 88 years. Mrs. Robbin's age at the time of her death was 69 years past. Her sickness was of short duration. She had been taken to a hospital in Enid, but died soon after reaching the hospital. Burial was made on Friday in the Timber Lake cemetery near Jet. Mrs. Robbins had long been a member of the Nazarene church and her entire christian experience was marked by many evidences of genuine sincerity, gentleness, kindness and of loving service for others. Besides her husband, Mrs. Robbins is survived by one son and one daughter, also by several step-children, four of whom - W. B. and Levi Robbins, Mrs. J. B. Handy and Mrs. Jones Swarner - live in this county.
