Obituary. We regret to chronicle the death of Mrs Catherine M'Carthy, which sad event occurred at her residence, Heathcote, last Saturday morning at the advanced age of 70 years, the immediate cause of death being pneumonia. The deceased lady, who was widely and respectfully known, was a colonist of 52 years, the whole of which time she resided at Commissioner's Flat, having come to Heathcote in the sixties. She was a native of County Kerry, Ireland, and came to Australia in the sailing vessel, the Champion, as a young woman, being married in Melbourne. Five sons and three daughters are left to mourn their sad loss, being Mrs Murphy (Sey- mour), Mrs E. Ryan (Heathcote), and Messrs Edward, Patrick, John and Dennis (Heathcote) and James (Leeton, N S. Wales). The funeral, which was largely attended, took place to the Heathcote cemetery on Sunday afternoon. The last sad rites at the graveside were conducted by the Rev. Father Bellaseni, and the mortuary arrangements were carried out by Messrs Perry Bros. Mr Bruce Greig, a very old and highly respected resident of Heathcote, passed peacefully away on Monday morning at the ripe old age of 84 years. A complete biography of Mr Greig's valuable and useful life will be published in next issue. The death occurred at the Heathcote Hospital on Wednesday evening of Mrs Albenia Lucy Maning, wife of Mr H. H. Maning. The deceased lady, who had attained the advanced age of 74 years, passed away from the effects of heart failure and pneumonia, after an illness of only one day. She was a native of Tasmania, and leaves her husband and one son, Private Fred. Manning (on active service) to mourn their sad loss. The remains will be interred in the Heathcote cemetery to-morrow afternoon.
