Gillard, Mary Ann (1845–1902)

It is our painful duty this week to chronicle the death of Mrs. John [Mary Ann] Gillard, of the Glebe, Sydney, who passed away at her residence on Thursday night last, after a week's illness. Deceased was in her usual health up to the 15th instant, when she was stricken with paralysis at the dinner-table, after which she never regained consciousness. She was under the care of Drs. Sydney Jones and Ashwell, but all human efforts were of no avail. She was a native of Colo, and was 57 years of age at the time of her death. She leaves a widower to mourn her loss. She was a sister to Mrs. G. Greentree, of Freeman's Reach, who waited on her during her brief illness. She also had several brothers in Queensland. She was buried on Saturday morning, the remains being interred in the Waverley Cemetery.
