Cavanough, Elizabeth (1842–1918)

The death took place in town, yesterday morning, in her 70th year, of Mrs. [Elizabeth] Cavanough, relict of the late George Cavanough, of Scone, and a widely-known and universally respected identity. The deceased, who had been a long sufferer from bronchial trouble, bore up against her illness uncomplainingly and with wonderful Christian fortitude. The funeral took place this afternoon, and was attended by a goodly number of relatives — of whom there are many — and sympathisers, the remains being interred in the Church of England Cemetery; the Rev. F. A. Cadell officiating.
