Ryan, Mary (1836–1894)

Our Dapto correspondent writes, that on the night of February 2 Mrs. Ryan, wife of Mr. Peter Ryan, of Newton, was struck with paralysis. She lay in a comatose state until Monday morning, when she expired. Her death is deeply regretted, and the respect in which she was held was manifested by the number of people forming the cortege. The funeral is spoken of as the largest ever seen in that part of the district.
