Collins, Patrick (1840–1937)

One of Shepparton’s oldest residents, Mr. Patrick Collins, died at his home in Knight street yesterday. The deceased, who was aged 96 years and 10 months, was a resident of the district for many years, and was one of its well-known identities. The late Mr. Collins’ wife predeceased him in 1928 [i.e. 1922], and there are three daughters. The funeral will leave his late residence to-day at 2 p.m. for the Shepparton cemetery, where Rev. Father Hussey will conduct the burial service. The mortuary arrangements are in the hands of Kittle Bros.
