Gosper, Hannah Beale (1806–1888)

We have also to sorrowfully announce the death of Mrs. Hannah B. Gosper, relict of the late Mr. John Gosper, which event occurred at the residence of her son, Mr. John Thomas Gosper, The Terrace, Windsor, on Saturday last. Mrs. Gosper was at the time of her death 82 years and two months' old. She was born at Pennant Hills, in the Parramatta district, in 1806, and had resided at Colo, in this district, with her late husband, for 60 years. Both herself and her husband commanded the respect of all classes of the community throughout the district, in which they were well known. Her husband was 86 years and six months' old at the time of his death, which occurred some 18 months since at Colo. He was a native of Wilberforce. The funeral of Mrs. Gosper took place on Sunday last, the remains being interred in St. Mathew's Cemetery at Windsor. The funeral was very largely attended by the district people. With the demise of Mrs. Gosper, the district has lost one of its oldest identities–of whom there are now few left to pass away–and her large family of children and grandchildren have lost a kind-hearted relative.
