Another old and highly respected resident of Wilberforce, in the person of Mrs. Anne Teale, wife of Mr. Henry Teale, died on Monday week, at the advanced age of 74 years. Prior to retiring to bed the deceased complained of being ill, but at the time gave no cause for alarm. However, during the night the members of the household were awakened, and the old lady appeared in a state of collapse. Medical aid was summoned, but it was not long ere she passed peacefully away. The cause of death was pronounced as heart failure. Deceased was a native of Wilberforce, was married (58 years ago), and died in the same place. She was held in the highest respect by all who knew her, and the unusually large crowd of people at the funeral was an excellent tribute to the memory of one so loved. At St. John's Church of England, Wilberforce, the Rev. W. S. Newton, M.A., delivered a touching address, during the course of which he referred to the grand life of deceased, and the noble example she set others. The choir sang a hymn, and as the coffin was borne from the church, the organist played the "Dead March." Decreased was the mother of a family of fourteen, all of whom, with the exception of one daughter, sur- vive her—Miss Annie Teale and Mr. Joe Teale, Wilberforce ; Mrs. Dorrington, Cornwallis; W. H., Fred., and Jas. Teale, Sydney ; Mrs. T. H. Jack son, Pymble; Mrs. Mackinnon, Coolamon; and Mesdames David Gosper, McKay, Fergusson, Rossitter, and Read, all of Sydney. Mr. Thomas Collison was the undertaker.
