McBean, Katye Mena (1873–1914)

from Independent (Deniliquin, NSW)

It is with regret that we announce the death of Kate Mena McBean, wife of Mr Alex. McBean, of Windouran Station, the sad event taking place in Melbourne on Wednesday. Mrs McBean was an inmate of the local hospital for several weeks, and left there apparently recovered about a month ago. She became ill again at Windouran, and was taken to Melbourne. Deceased underwent an operation on Tuesday, which unfortunately was not successful, and she died the following day.

The late Mrs McBean was the youngest daughter of the Hon. Simon Fraser, of “Norla,” Irving road, Toorak, and leaves a family of three young children. To them and to Mr McBean we extend our deepest sympathy in the great loss they have sustained.

The funeral took place yesterday, the cortege leaving the residence of the deceased lady’s father. The remains were interred in Boroondara Cemetery, Kew.
