MRS. LUCY COLVIN ROBINSON

Mrs. Lucy C. Robinson passed away Friday, July 3 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. John W. Potter of Orwell, where she had been failing for several weeks. Mrs. Robinson was born July 25, 1855 at Pamelia, being the daughter of Frank and Lucy Montondo. On December 30, 1871 she was united in marriage to Orin H. Colvin of Orwell, whose passing occurred March 11, 1908. Ten children blessed their union, of whom eight are living. Mrs. John Adams and Mrs. A. Flagg, Pulaski; W. Colvin, Osceola; Mrs. C. Brown, Watertown; Mrs. C. Calvin [sic], Carthage; Ora Colvin, Fulton; Mrs. I. W. Potter, Orwell and Mrs. Anson Fuller, Carthage. She is also survived by 36 grandchildren and a number of great-grandchildren and by three brothers, W. Montondo, Walter Montondo and Geo. Montondo, Altmar, also by three sisters, Mrs. John Trumble, Pulaski; Mrs. Bessie Mellon and Mrs. W. Little, Altmar.

On December 1909 she was again united in marriage to John H. Robinson of Pulaski who survives her.

Memorial services were held at her daughter's home, Mrs. I. W. Potter, Monday at 3:30 p. m., July 6, Rev. T. T. Davies, Sandy Creek, officiating. Music by E. A. Field. Interment in River Side cemetery. The wealth of beautiful flowers was a mute testimony to her noble life and excellent character.

Most of her life, excepting five years at Oriskany Falls has been spent in Pulaski. She was a true wife and a devoted mother and made life easier and better to those whose life she touched. Her obsequies were largely attended and the loss of her departure was keenly felt by those who knew her.

"Now our sister's task is o'er
Now the battle day is past--
Now upon the farther shore
Lands the voyager at last
Father in Thy gracious keeping
Leave we now our sister sleeping.
To a peaceful resting place,
Calmly now the words we say
Leaving her to sleep in trust
Till the Resurrection Day--
Father in Thy gracious keeping
Leave we now our sister sleeping."
