The Yakima Daily Republic of Monday, May 4, gives the following account of the untimely death Mrs. Robinson:
"Strange death of Mrs. Marian Robinson, 22, who was stricken While sitting In an automobile in front of her home at 510 North First street and died before she reached St. Elizabeth's hospital Saturday night, was due to acute hemorrhages of the brain resulting from meningitis, an autopsy performed by Dr. W. H. Carver, coroner, revealed.
Flu Starlit Trouble
"For some time Mrs. Robinson had been working at a fountain in a drug store In Ellensburg. She was working hard and appeared to be tired out and her relatives persuaded her to give up her job and return to her home in Yakima. She completed her work Saturday evening and drove to Yakima with friends.
"She was sitting in the automobile In front of her home waiting for other friends from Ellensburg to arrive. Mrs. Robinson put her head on her arm and Merle Walker of Ellensburg, driver of the car, thought at first she was crying. She started gasping for air and her friends hurried to the hospital but she died before reaching there. "The death certificate shows that Influenza of three weeks' duration was the start of the trouble. An acute pyogenic sphenoidal infection was followed by pachy-meningitis with acute hemorrhages, the examining physicians found. At first it was thought that she might have been poisoned, but examination showed nothing of the sort.
Leave Baby Son
"Mrs. Robinson made her home with all aunt, Mrs. Clyde Hart, 5111 North First street, in Yakima. She was separated from her husband, Joe Robinson. She leaves a 16 months old baby, Denver D. Robinson; her father, Henry Boardman of Spencer, la.; two sisters, Mrs. Myrtle Grey of Des Moines, la., and Mrs. Jack Williams of Spencer; a brother, Nathan Boardman of Yakima
