Brooker, Sophia Mary (1803–1892)

By a notice in our advertising columns the death of Mrs. Sophia Brooker, of Lake Albert, is announced at the ripe old age of 91 years 8 months. Mrs. Brooker had been resident in or around Wagga for many years, and was much respected by all who knew her. Until quite recently she enjoyed excellent health, and being the happy possessor of a robust constitution, had never suffered from any serious illness. At the time of her death, Mrs. Brooker was a widow, her husband having died some years ago. Deceased leaves a large circle of relations and friends in the Lake Albert and Wagga district.
