MRS. H. BLUNDEN.

It is with deep regret we have to chronicle the death of Mrs. Blunden, wife of Mr. H. Blunden, of West Wyalong. The sad event took place at the Hospital on Tuesday night, the cause of death being typhoid fever.

The deceased lady's illness commenced some five weeks ago, and the symptoms becoming very serious, it was found necessary to remove her to the Hospital, of which institution she has been an occupant for the past three weeks.

In the early part of this week her condition showed a decided improvement, and hopes were given for her recovery, but on Tuesday evening she suffered another relapse and passed away at about 9.30 p.m. Deceased was well-known and respected on the field, having been resident here for the past 13 years. She leaves a husband and four little children, besides four daughters (Mrs. Piesley of Sydney, Mrs. Wilsmith, of Temora, Mrs. Jas. Parker, and Mrs. Perry, of West Wyalong), to mourn an irreparable loss.

Much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved ones, who received a large number of floral tributes and expressions of sympathy.

The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon and was largely attended the Rev. J. H. S Oldham officiating at the graveside. Mrs. Piesly travelled from Sydney to attend the funeral, and a brother of Mr. Blunden travelled all day and all night from Hillston to attend, but was unfortunate in arriving an hour too late.

We extend our sincere sympathy to the bereaved ones.

OBITUARY

MRS. C. H. AMEY

The death of Mrs. Clara Josephine Amey, wife of Mr. C. H. Amey, of Bena Road, Girra, removes an old and highly-esteemed resident of West Wyalong and district.

Mrs. Amey had been ill for about a fortnight prior to her death, when she suffered a paralytic stroke, and was admitted to the Wyalong District Hospital.

The late Mrs. Amey was born at Hay 49 years ago. She came to West Wyalong with her parents, Mr. H. R. Blunden and the late Mrs. Blunden, when a child, and practically the whole of her life was spent at West Wyalong and in the district.

She was married to Mr. Amey in 1912, and has lived on their property on the Bena Road ever since. Many friends and acquaintances pay tribute to her kindly and charitable nature and her good neighborly qualities, and express regret at the passing of this estimable citizen.

There was a representative attendance at the funeral on Monday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Church of England portion of the Wyalong cemetery. The Rev. H. C. Barratt officiated at the graveside, and the mortuary arrangements were in hands of Messrs R. and G. Stephenson.

Deceased is survived by her husband and family of five sons and three daughters and her father, Mr. H. Blunden, of Goolagong, five sisters, Mrs. James Parker, West Wyalong, Mrs. F. Wilesmith, Ariah Park, Mrs. K. Perry, Bankstown, Mrs. J. Green, Hillston, Mrs. O. Peasley, Goolagong, and one brother, Mr. Thomas Blunden, Hillston.

OBITUARY - HENRY RAYNOR BLUNDEN.

One of the oldest residents of the Hillston district passed peacefully away at the local hospital on Sunday last, in the person of Mr. Henry Raynor Blunden.

Deceased, who was born at Bendigo, had reached the age of 83 years, and was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thos. R. Blunden, of Bendigo.

He first came to Hillston when only a lad, and for several years was a driver for Cobb & Co., on the Carrathool-Booligal-Gunbar runs. He was also one of the early mailmen, being engaged in conveying mails per pack-horse in the infancy of the district.

He was married at Hillston, when 22, to Miss Emma Ray, of Hay, and seven sons and one daughter were born of the union.

His widow predeceased him some time ago. His son, Mr. Thos. Blunden and one daughter, Mrs. J. Green, still reside in Hillston. Two brothers, Messrs. Fred and Ted. Blunden, also survive, and a large number of grandchildren and great grand children.

Of late years he had led a retired life, and spent a good deal of time in the Cooragong district. The last months of his life were spent with his daughter, Mrs. J. Green, and it was from her home that he entered hospital on Friday last.

The funeral took place on Monday afternoon in the Church of England portion of the Hillston cemetery, Rev. C. Williamson (Presbyterian) officiated, and the arrangements were in the hands of Mrs. L. D. Wilson.
