    • Death of Mrs. E. Perks.

      As the evening church bells of Xmas Day pealed, passed away the spirit of Eliza Perks, one of the gentlest christians in the town of Young. The deceased was the daughter of the late William Armstrong of Edgerton, Mundoonan, and was born 78 years ago in Sydney. In 1867 she married Josiah William Perks, grazier of Rye Park, but in 1885 her husband died at Yass. Although left with a young family of seven, without a husband's help and comfort she bravely undertook the management of her late husband's properties and reared her children facing her trials with a true christian fortitude and faith that set her children an example that it has not been the privilege of all families to enjoy. About 15 years ago she came to live at Young where most of the family were residing. Although never very active of late years she had not been really ailing till a fortnight ago, when she contracted slight congestion of the lungs. Despite every earthly attention being given with unfailing devotion by her son and daughters she seemed to gradually sink, passing peacefully away. Besides the sorrowing daughter, Mrs. Begg at whose home she died she leaves, two other daughters, viz. Mrs. A. Wales (Young) Mrs. A. Plumb (Gunning ) also three sons, Harry (Milthorpe), Josiah (Eugowra), and Dunstan (Young). Two daughters predeceased the husband and one son,William, died seventeen months ago, during the influenza epidemic.

      The remains enclosed in a silver mounted polished maple casket were laid to rest on Sunday in the Methodist portion of the Young cemetery. Rev. A. E.Putland officiated at the graveside, and spoke feelingly of the splendid christian character of the deceased. Loving, and being a staunch adherent of the church, the hymn "That Will be Glory For Me" which she always loved so much to hear was sung over the grave. As the years pass by the family will realise the truth of one of her many sayings?"The memory of a good life scents like a rose, after death."
