Booth, Esther Amelia (1861–1946)

A host of friends learned with deep regret of the death of a respected district identity in Mrs. Esther Amelia Booth, who passed away on Sunday last at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. A. Green, of Windsor at the advanced age of 85 years.

A native of Wilberforce, the late Mrs. Booth had been a resident of the district throughout her life. Her earlier days were spent in the Wilberforce district, and following her marriage to the late Mr. H. T. Booth, she lived at Putty, and later at Colo, before moving to Windsor some 25 years ago.

Of a quiet and unassuming disposition, deceased was devoted to her family and friends, and this affection was fully reciprocated, for all who had the pleasure of knowing her could not but appreciate the many fine qualities which earned her the unreserved respect of all with whom she came in contact.

The late Mrs. Booth is survived by a family of two sons, Ivo (Toowoomba) and Rudolph (Freeman's Reach), and four daughters, Mrs. Bolt (Newcastle), Mrs. B. Gosper (Richmond), Mrs. W. A. Green (Windsor) and Mrs. G. Farlow (Windsor), to whom the condolences of their many district friends are extended in their bereavement.

The funeral took place on Monday afternoon, when the remains were laid to rest in the Church of England cemetery at Windsor, the Rural Dean, Rev. C. L. Williams, officiating.

The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr. Chandler, Windsor.
