Gosper, Esther (1844–1917)

News was received this morning of the death in Sydney of Mrs. [Esther] Gosper, wife of Mr. F. Gosper, of Neurea. The deceased lady was a very old resident of the district, and was for some years a sufferer from rheumatism, though of late her condition has been very much improved. She recently went to Sydney to undergo an operation for her eyes, but took seriously ill and died from diabetes. She leaves a widower and a grown-up family of four sons and four daughters. One of the sons is in New Zealand, and another in Rylestone, the others being residents of the district. The daughters are Mrs. M. Crockett, Dripstone; Mrs. Munro, Newcastle; Mrs. Edwards, Sydney, and Mrs. Attenborough, Canowindra. She was well known and highly respected and her death will be mourned by a large circle of friends. The remains will be brought to Wellington by the mail train in the morning, and will be taken to the Church of England, from whence the funeral will start at 2 p.m. for the Church of England portion of the Wellington cemetery. Mr. C. J. Shakespeare has charge of the funeral arrangements.
