Notes:  Rosina Reber was born 4 Aug 1852 in Schangnau, Bern, Switzerland.  Her parents were Johannes Reber and Barbara Stucki.  She had an older brother John, born 18 Mar 1849.  Her parents joined the Church of Latter Day Saints, and in 1860 joined the Liverpool Mission in the immigration to America.  Rosina, her parents, brother John and other relatives sailed on the S.S. Underwriter from Liverpool, England, arriving in New York on 1 May 1860.  In August, the family was found in Douglas County, Nebraska, the starting point for the Mormons' trek across the plains.

Rosina and her family were members of the Swiss pioneers who settled in Santa Clara, Utah in 1861.  In the 1870 U.S. census, her father John was a farmer, and her brother John was a farm labourer.  At age 17, Rosina was helping her mother keep house.  She had a younger sister Sara G., born in Utah in 1865.

On 5 Jun 1871, she married George Staheli, becoming his third wife.  They had four children, namely Karl Henry, Franklin, Rosena Sophia, and Georgiana.  In the 1880 U.S. census, their household included George and John, adult sons from George Staheli's first marriage, Franklin, Rosena, and Georgiana.  Karl Henry had died at age one year, and Georgiana died Aug 1880, also age one year.  Her husband George died 23 Apr 1881.

On 8 Oct 1881, six months later, Rosina married Jacob Tobler, becoming his fourth wife.  Jacob's second wife Anna Barbara Staheli was still living, and after Rosina's death, took charge of raising her children from this marriage.  Rosina and Jacob had six children, namely, John Alfred, Edward, Josephine, Vernon, Lillian Barbara, and Rhoda Barbara.

Rosina died 24 Apr 1900 of appendicitis, and is buried in the Santa Clara City Cemetery, Santa Clara, Utah.
