Rennard, Emma Olivia (1845–1914)

The death occurred somewhat suddenly on Friday last at Macks Creek, Lower Bulga, of Mrs. Emma Olivia Rennard, widow of the late Dr. Rennard, from heart failure, at the age of 69 years. Old residents will remember the kindly French doctor, who at times was the only practitioner in this part of South Gippsland, until his death many years ago. Mrs Rennard was born in Launceston, and arrived in this district when a child. She was married at Tarraville. Her remains were interred in the Woodside cemetery on Sunday last, the Church of England service being read by the Rev. Geo. Cox. Mr. Jas. S. Graham was acting undertaker.
