Harrigan, Louise (Louisa) (1847–1917)

The death occurred at Kangaloon, on Wednesday last, of a very old and highly-esteemed resident, in the person of Mrs [Louise] Harrigan. The deceased lady, who was 69 years of age, had not been in good health for some time, and the end came as the result of heart failure. Mrs. Harrigan was a sister of the late Mr. W. F. Brenning; she was an exceedingly fine woman, and her gentle and kindly disposition endeared her to everyone with whom she came in contact. The funeral took place on Thursday, and the large and representative attendance from all parts of the district, together with the many beautiful wreaths, bore testimony to the popularity of the deceased. The Rev. J. F. Schwegier conducted a short service at the house, and afterwards officiated at the grave, where an address was also made by Mr W. A. Walker. The remains were laid at rest in the Church of England cemetery at East Kangaloon.
