    Ruth Tucker Obituary, Ogden Standard Examiner 1892-01-23, A Noble Woman Gone
    Another old-timer has gone, another of the courageous souls that redeemed the wilderness, to make it a pleasant abode, has taken its flight to other realms. On Sunday, the 17th, Mrs Ruth Robey expired suddenly of heart failure, her husband, Jeremiah Robey, Eaq., sitting by her. She had been his faithful spouse and true helpmate for more than half a century.

    The deceased was born in Shynston, Harrison county, Virginia, Jule 26, 1816. She married when 17 years of age, Jeremiah Robey, with who she removed in 1841 to Nauvoo, where they were identified in full faith and good works with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, bearing their share of teh hardships succeeding the martyrdom of the prophets Joseph and Hyrum.

    Mr and Mrs Robey came to Utah in 1852, soon moving to Provo Valley, where they assisted valiantly and industriously in settling this now thriving and prosperous plan and "growing up with the county". Mr Robey was honored by the confidence of his fellow citizens with many public trusts, especially as a member of a long succession of school boards, and "Gran'ma" Robey ever was the friend of the young and old, even outside her immediate family circle.

    For, though of ten children, born to them in the course of long years of loving union, six were taken from them by death, she leaves 41 grandchildren, 152 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild to mourn her loss, which in a measure is felt in the entire neighborhood, whose warm affection and full confidence the deceased enjoyed even to their demise.

    This was nobly evident on the occasion of the funeral on Tuesday afternoon, when the meetinghouse was crowded with old and young, about 200 school children being in attendance, in honor of "Grandma Robey," whose husband has so long been prominent in the development of the youth of Midway. Bishop Van Wagener and Counselors Watkins and Alexander, in feeling languages, extolled the virtures of the deceased sister and spoke words of hope-inspiring comfort to the bereaved family, who have the sympathies of all, including many old-time friends in Ogden, such as Hon. D. H. Peery and family.
