DEATH OF MRS. JUKES SENR. The death of an old pioneer resi- dent of Warrnamhbool in the person of Mrs. A. M. Jukes,will be the cause of deep regret amongst a very wide circle of friend in Warrnambool and district. The late Mrs. Jukes, after an illness of only about four days, duration passed peacefully away at her home "Willesden", Victoria street, early yesterday morning at the advanced age of 82 years. The deceasedwas the relict of the late Mr Alfred M. Jukes, one of the first solicitors of Warrnambool, who also acted as town clerk for early Warrn- ambool, and who died in 1872. She was a native of Glasgow, and arrived in Melbourne in 1853 to be married. After residing at Richmond for some little time Mr. and Mrs Jukes came to Warrnambool and resided at "Clif- ton," on he Hopkins till they built the well-known home "Belvidere," Twenty years ago the late Mrs. Jukes removed to the town, where she had resided up to the time of her' death. She was known throughout the town for her many kindly and benevolent acts and her never-tiring activity in the cause of charity. Her whole life, seemed to be devoted to ministering to the comfort and happi- ness of others. She was one of the inception members of the Christ Church Ladies Guild and set an ex- ample to all the othermembers by herregular attendance at the work meetings and her unflagging zeal and industry on behalf of the poor and of the church, of which she was al- ways a staunch supporter Since the war broke out, notwith- standing her advancing age, the late Mrs. Jukes had even surpassed her previous unselfish and untiring ef- forts. 'The fact that she had receiv- ed much of her education at Ma- lines, one of the beautiful Belgian cities destroyed by the Germans, was probably responsible for the war mak- ing a particularly deep impression on her. She knew and loved Belgium and keenly felt the present sad plight of that brave and beautiful little country. In addition to attending the working meetings of the Christ Church Ladies Guild every week, the deceased supplied with her own hands piles of comforts for the sol- diers and requirements for the Red Cross. The quantity of work she turned out astonished her friends, and she felt that she could not do enough for the alleviation of the ter- rible sufferings caused by the war. Her lavish generosity also displayed. itself in her large and valuable con- tributions of clothing for destitute Belgians. It is feared that the war was, to a large extent, responsible for her break down in health but her long useful and unselfish life could not have ended under circum- stances more satisfactory to such a fine self-denying character. The late Mrs. Jukes leaves a grown up family of three sons and one daughter, with whom deep sympathy will be felt in their loss. The inter- ment will be private, but a memori- iam service will, be held at Christ Church this afternoon, at three o'clock. The death occurred at the residence of Mr. W. H. Thomas, "Kirkstall," Owen; South Australia, of Mrs. John Gallin, late of Koroit. The deceased lady was an old resident of Koroit, her late husband having carried on business there for many yeers. Mrs. Gallin was a lady who had earned the greatest respect and esteem of all with whom she was brought in con tact. One of her daughters was mar ried to W. R. Thomas, of Kirk stall, and the deceased lady resided with them there for some years and went with them to South Australia, where her death took place at the ad vanced age of 86 years.
