Cobcroft, Louisa Ann (1860–1950)

The district has lost another of its fine old personalities in Mrs. Louisa Ann Cobcroft, of Wilberforce, whose death took place suddenly in the District Hospital (where she had been undergoing treatment for an injury) on July 17, at the ripe old age of 90 years.

A native of Wilberforce, where she had lived throughout her life, the late Mrs. Cobcroft was widely known and esteemed for her many fine attributes, being particularly noted for her church work at Wilberforce, and as a kindly neighbour and good citizen generally. Her husband, the late Samuel Cobcroft, predeceased her some 37 years ago, and she is survived by two sons, Roy and Kenneth, of Wilberforce, and a sister, Mrs. Geo. Marden.

The funeral took place on July 18, when the remains were laid to rest in the Church of England cemetery at Wilberforce, the Rev. C. Dorman officiating.
