Forrester, Louisa (1820–1897)

Again we have to record the death of one of the Hawkesbury's oldest and most respected residents, in the person of Mrs Louisa Forrester, of "Rose Mount," Grose Vale, which event took place at her late residence on Thursday night last, after a very long and painful illness. Deceased had reached the age of 78 years, and had been confined to her bed for some months. She had for a long period resided at Grose Vale, with her son Mr R. H. Forrester, and was well-known by almost every person in the district. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon last. Leaving the house at 1 p.m, the cortege, which was a very long one, and which increased as it came along, wended its way to St. Matthew's Church of England Cemetery at Windsor, where the interment took place. The coffin was covered with many beautiful wreaths. A large number of persons joined the procession on its arrival in Windsor. The pall-bearers were Messrs. D. Mayne, W. Ezzy, W. Mayo, and L. Easy. The Rev. S. G. Fielding officiated. Mr T. Collison carried out the duties of undertaker.
