Curchod, Clare Dorcas (?–1908)

It is with deepest regret that we announce the death of Mrs. H. J. Curchod, at St. Luke's Hospital, on the 9th inst. The deceased lady was a resident of Double Bay for several years, and was loved by all who knew her.

She received the last Sacraments from Rev. father H. McGuire, who was very attentive to her; also the Sisters of St. Joseph, including her aunt, Sister Gertrude. She leaves a sorrowing husband and son, Arthur, to mourn her untimely demise. The funeral left St. Charles' Church, Waverley (where Requiem Mass was said on 10th inst.), for Wavervey Cemetery. The Very Rev. Father Fitzgerald, who was present when deceased was received into the Children of Mary sodality, officiated at the grave. Amongst others present were Mr. H. J. Curchod (husband). Master A. Curchod (son), Mr., Mrs. and Miss Curchod, Mr. C.W. and Miss Lonergan, (brother and sisters), Mr. Toohey, Mr. Watt, Mr. Quinn, Mrs. O'Halloran, Miss Lopez and Mrs. Hall.  Floral tributes were received from Mr. and Mrs. Watson, Mr. and Ms. Lennane, Mrs. Fieldhouse, and others; also letters and telegrams, of condolence.
