Hammond, Oedilia Ellen (1861–1933)

In the death of Mrs. H. G. [Oedilia Ellen] Hammond on Friday morning last Candelo lost an old and very highly-respected identity. The late Mrs. Hammond was a member of the Holzhauser family, and was born in Bega 72 years ago. The whole of her life was spent in the district. Her married life extended over 50 years, the family comprising the late Mr. Henry Hammond (who died a few months ago at Newcastle), and Mesdames R. J. Glenn and L. Glenn of Candelo. She was an ideal wife and mother, and was greatly respected outside her home circle for her fine character and kindly personality. General sympathy is felt for her devoted husband and daughters, who are held in high esteem in the community. She was buried on Saturday afternoon in the presence of a large and representative gathering, the Rev. J. Rose, officiating at the graveside. A brief service was also conducted at the Church of England, en route to the cemetery. Local Oddfellows acted as pall-bearers.
