Obituary – Mrs. Alice Flugan Robbins
East Liverpool Tribune
Word was received in Lisbon Friday morning announcing the death of Mrs. Alice Flugan Robbins, the wife of Charles Robbins, which occurred in the Alliance City hospital at 8 o’clock Friday morning (September 15, 1911). On last Monday Mrs. Robbins was taken to the Alliance hospital where she underwent an operation on Tuesday for serious internal trouble. She had been in ill health for a number of years and during the entire summer months had been confined to her bed, the only hope for her recovery being an operation. The operation was seemingly successful but owing to the weakened condition of the patient on account of long illness, she was unable to rally and the hand of death could not be stayed.
Deceased was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George D. Flugan, west of Lisbon, and was born one mile south of this city about 445 years ago. When quite young she was united in marriage with Charles Robbins, who with four children, Martha, Mary, Carl and George, survive in the home. She is also survived by her parents, and the following brothers and sisters: James, Will, Frank and Charles, Mrs. Nettie Pritchard, and Mrs. Lissie Jackson, of this city, Mrs. Nannie Ferrall, of East Liverpool, Mrs. Sophia Abrams, of Kansas.
The body was brought to this city on the 4 o’clock Y. & O. car Friday afternoon and taken to the home on West Chestnut street. The time of the funeral has not as yet been arranged, but it is likely that it will be held at some hour on Sunday.
