Kelly, Hannah (1823–1898)

News has arrived of the death of Mrs. E. [Hannah] Kelly, which occurred on last Saturday at her son's residence, Popran Creek. The deceased lady had been a widow for about three years, and had attained the ripe age of 75. She received the last rites of the Church from the Rev. Father Bridge, the priest in charge at Gosford. By her death the Hawkesbury district has lost one of its oldest and most well-known residents. Mrs. Kelly had the happiness of seeing one of her daughters take the religious veil, and in course of time become Rev. Mother of the Community of the Sisters of Mercy, Monte St. Angelo, North Sydney. Mother Austin, to whom we refer, received some few years ago the heavenly reward which her remarkably holy life merited. It may be also mentioned that the Rev. Father Cregan, now one of the staff at St. Mary's Cathedral, is a grandson of the deceased.
