THE TILLER AND TOILER, 5 December 1929
Obituary – Raymond Cole Robbins

Raymond Cole Robbins, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Robbins of this city was born at Greenfield, Ill., June 13, 1916. About two weeks prior to his death he was stricken with an infection in his hip which developed into acute septicaemia, and on Tuesday morning, November 26, 1929, he died at the age of 13 years, 5 months and 13 days.

Raymond always expressed great affection for the loved ones in the home, delighting to show some kindness to those of his home, and was a great comfort and help to his mother, and his gentleness and thoughtfulness will be greatly missed.

He was a pupil of the 8th grade of the city schools, a member of Troop No. 2, of the Boy Scouts of America, a member of the Methodist Episcopal church of this city and vice-president of his Sunday school class.  Everything was done that loving hands and medical science could do but was of no avail.

He leaves to mourn his death his father, mother, four sisters, Helen, Lucille, Ruth and Wilma, and other relatives and a host of friends that always cherished his happy greeting and his energetic spirit.

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock at the Beckwith Mortuary, Rev. J. W. Jones officiating, after which burial was in the Larned cemetery.

The family have the sympathy of their many friends.  A quartette composed of Mrs. B. A. Lovett, Mrs. J. C. Chaddick, Leroy Harris and L. M. Christy, sang “Abide With Me,” “Asleep In Jesus,” and “One Sweetly Solemn Thought.”

The pallbearers were Carl Heaton, J. C. Olson, Francis Brown and Marion McDonald.

The flower girls were Celeste Lowrey, Anita Haag, Barbara Peterson and Helen Lee Estes.
