MRS. J. T. SUTTON. There passed away at her resi- dence, Gawler street, on Saturday afternoon last, another of that illus- trious, but fast-diminishing band of pioneers, in the person of Mrs J. T Sutton, widow of the late Mr. Fran- cis Sutton. The deceased lady who had reached the ripe old age of 85, had been confined to her bed for the last five weeks, and gradually the frailty caused by advanced years became more pronounced, until she passed peacefully away in her sleep, her spirit never failing her until the very last. She was a true type of a fine old English lady, and had a most charming, manner which en- deared herself to all with whom she came in contact. Charitably dis- posed, she was ever ready to assist anyone in distress, and her deeds of kindness were innumerable. Born in Tipperary (Ireland), she came to Australia at the age of six, and after being in the Strathdownic district for some years, in the year 1874 mar- ried the late Mr. Francis Sutton, who was a well known identity in the early days' of settlement of that part. Of the marriage there was a family of six daughters and two sons, to whom the deepest sym- pathy is extended in their great loss. At the time of death six of the fam- ily were at their mother's bedside, and during her period of illness the ministrations of her daughters were a wonderful example of filial love. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, the large and representa- tive attendance present bearing elo- quent testimony to the esteem in which the late lady was held. Rev. Canon Coupe conducted the services at the house and graveside, while Mr. T. C. Jarrett carried out the mortu- ary arrangements.
