O'Meehan, Emma (1861–1899)

Death of Mrs O'Meehan. — The news of the demise of Mrs O'Meehan, wife of the Government medical officer at Kalgoorlie, which arrived on Sunday evening last, was received with genuine regret, not only in Bunbury but throughout the whole of the South-western districts. The deceased lady was a native of Bunbury, having been born in this town on October 3rd, 1861, and was the daughter of Mr Jas. G Thomson, more extensively known as 'Gentleman' Thomson.

The deceased lady was twice married, her first husband being a Mr De Lisle, a brother-in-law to Governor Weld, to whom she was married in 1882 at Dardanup. Her husband died a year or two afterwards, and in 1886 she was married to Dr O'Meehan in Bunbury. She had no children.

The remains were brought to Bunbury to-day and the funeral takes place to-morrow at 11 a.m.
