Mrs. Stephen was very well known in the early days of Wagga. She was 77 years of age, and leaves a grown up family. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon. The remains were interred in the family enclosure in the Church of England portion of the Wagga cemetery. The Rector of St. John's, Rev. G. A. Carver, officiated at the graveside. The funeral arrangements were conducted by Messrs. McIntosh Bros.
