Higgins, Ann Rebecca (Annie) (1833–1882)

Another old resident has passed away. Mrs. R. J. [Ann Rebecca] Higgins, to whom we refer, died at Nangus on Saturday last, and her remains were brought into town and conveyed to their last resting place in the Roman Catholic cemetery on Sunday afternoon last. As the funeral cortege passed up Fitzmaurice-street it was joined by most of the residents, many of whom had known the deceased lady in the good old times. Mr. and Mrs. Higgins at one time owned the Australian Hotel, and Mrs. Higgins there made those numerous friends who on Sunday last paid the last tribute of respect to her memory. The funeral service was read by Dr. Bermingham in his usual impressive manner, and with "dust to dust, and ashes to ashes" the body was laid away amid the tears of many sorrowing relatives and friends.
