Robinson, Emily Louisa (1846–1928)

The death occurred at her niece's residence, 'Woodville,' Wilberforce, on the 12th instant, of Miss Emily Louisa Robinson, at the ripe age of 78 years. The deceased, who had been in indifferent health for three months prior to her death, was a daughter of the late John and Eliza Robinson, early day pioneers of this district. She was born at Wilberforce, and many years ago conducted a private school in a building, since demolished, at the bottom of the Wilberforce Church Hill, where Mr. Walter Case now lives. The late Miss Robinson was a good Christian woman, and was the aunt of Miss S. M. Dunston, and Messrs J. V. and Steve Dunston, of Wilberforce. The funeral took place on Friday, the remains being laid to rest in St. John's Church of England cemetery, Wilberforce. Rev. Stanley Howard, M.A., officiated at the graveside, and Mr. Chandler was the undertaker.
