    • OBITUARY

      MRS. ESTHER JANE WALES

      The death occurred in the Sacred Heart Hospital on Saturday evening, after a short illness of Mrs. Esther Jane Wales, wife of Mr. Albert Wales, aged 62 years.

      With her husband and family deceased had been a resident of Marengo Street, Young, for the past 40 years, and she was highly esteemedby a wide circle of friends, her sweet disposition and kind heartedness endearing her to all who knew her.

      Until two years ago deceased had enjoyed the best of health. She received a stroke in 1929 which resulted in partial paralysis. This did not affect her good spirits, and she still remained active. Last Thursday week illness supervened and deceased was removed to hospital, where despite medical and nursing skill, she gradually declined and she passed peacefully away as stated.

      The late Mrs. Wales was a native of Rye Park, the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Perks. She was married at Burrowa in 1889 and came to Young with her husband immediately after the wedding, and has resided here ever since. Her life was one of devotion and self sacrifice for her family, and her almost daily acts of kindness and neighbourliness to others in times of sickness and trial will long be remembered.

      A family of one son and two daughters survive, another son Des mond having predeceased her about three years ago. , The surviving members are Mrs. A. Moate (Yass), Mrs. A. I'Anson (landra) j and Mr. Earl Wales (Young). Brothers and sisters of the deceased are Mrs. A. Plumb (Gunning), Mrs. B. Begg (Young), Mrs. Harry Perks (Mill- thorpe), and Mr. Joseph Perks (Orange). The funeral took place from Patterson's Funeral Parlours to the Methodist portion of the Young cemetery, where the body was laid to rest in the family grave. Despite the short notice and extreme heat, the funeral was largely at- tended. Rev. P. H. Curtis officiated, conducting a short service before the cortege moved to the cemetery. The pall-bearers were Mssrs. I. Joyce, W. Smithers and deceased two nephews, Messrs. Oliver and Roy Wales.

      Many beautiful floral tributes were sent, including the following; Dad and the Girls; Eva and Jim Pizarro and family; Mr. and Mrs. Reg Foster, and Mr. O. Wales; Mrs. and Misses Tonkin; Ollie and Reg.; Ernest, Rebecca and Glad; Mrs. J. Wales; Claude, Ruby, Phyl and Joy; Fred, Lizzie and family; Mr. and Mrs. W. Sutton and family; Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Kleen and family; Mr. and Mrs. C. Price and family; Mr. and Mrs. Claude Symons; Eric, Angella, Bernie, Joan and Dick; Jean and Harold and others without cards attached. -- The Young Witness
