From The North Midland Times newspaper, Friday 13 January 1939:
"The Late Mrs. Alma Robinson. It is with extreme regret that we record the death of Mrs. T. Robinson of "Belvoir," Carnamah, who passed away on Sunday at Midland Junction. The late Mrs. Robinson, who was aged 64 years, has not enjoyed the best of health for some time and the news of her demise, although sudden, was not altogether unexpected. A husband and two sons, Harold and Leslie, are left to mourn their loss. One son, Wilfred, predeceased her, being killed in action. The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, the place of interment being the Karrakatta Cemetery."
