Obituary

MRS. ROSE ANN LEDWIDGE

The death occurred in the Hay Hospital on Monday of last week, of Mrs. Rose Ann Ledwidge, at the age of 78 years.

The deceased had been in indifferent health for some years and had several times been a patient in hospital, being admitted for the last time only two weeks prior to her death.

The deceased lady was very well known and highly respected in the Carrathool district having lived there from the age of nine years.

She was born at the Billabong Creek, Jerilderie, and went to Howlong Station with her father. Up to the time of her last illness, Mrs. Ledwidge was always ready to relate tales of the early days of the district and one was always assured of an interesting conversation with her when she was in reminiscent mood and re-lived the days of her youth.

While in her early twenties she married Mr. Michael Ledwidge, a well-known teamster of the Carrathool district, who pre-deceased her by nine years.

Of her eight children six survive her. They are: Leo (Sydney), Margaret (Mrs. Parr, Hay), Michael John (Darlington Point), Alfred Thomas (Jerilderie), Albert George (Sydney), and Frank Bartlett, who is at present in camp with the A.I.F. at Ingleburn.

One son was killed at Gallipoli in the last war, and one was accidentally drowned in the Murrumbidgee many years ago She is also survived by a large number of grandchildren and some great grandchildren. Four of her sons served with the A.I.F.

The funeral was held on the day following her death, the interment being in the Roman Catholic portion of the Hay cemetery. The Rev. Fr. McGrath performed the ceremony, which was attended by a large circle of her friends and relatives. The large attendance and the number of floral tributes spoke eloquently of the popular esteem in which this pioneer of the district was held.
