Schreiber, Emmeline Maria (Emily) (1837–1929)

The many friends of Miss Collett, of "Pelerin," Singleton, will be sorry to learn that her mother, Mrs Emmeline Maria Schreiber, passed away yesterday morning in a private hospital at Chatswood. The old lady, who was 92 years of age, broke a leg six weeks ago, as the result of a fall, and never rallied from the injury and shock. The late Mrs Schreiber, who was twice married, was a native of Dunolly, being a daughter of the late James Taylor McDougall; but had resided for many years at Roseville, near Sydney, with her married daughter, Mrs Geo. Steele. The issue of the first marriage was one son and three daughters, and of the second union one son. The members of the first family are Mrs. G. Steele (Roseville), Mrs A. P. Lambert (Balgowlah, Manly), Miss A. M. Collott (Singleton), Mr A. B. Collett (manager of Government Savings Bank at Scone); and the member of the second family is Mr F. A. Schreiber (West Wyalong). The funeral will leave the Presbyterian Church, Singleton, to-morrow (Saturday), at 2 p.m., for Presbyterian cemetery, Glenridding.
