Thompson, Elizabeth (Eliza) (1835–1912)

The death occurred at her residence, Moulder-street, East Orange, on Saturday morning of Mrs. Eliza Thompson from senile decay at the age of 77 years. The deceased lady was a native of Bathurst, and on the death of her husband came to reside in Orange. About two years ago her health began to fail, and gradually her condition became worse, culminating in her death. A family of three daughters deplore their mother's demise, their names being:—Mrs. Hillford (Sydney), Mrs. Mitchell (East Orange), and Mrs. James Lowe (East Orange). The funeral took place yesterday, the body being interred in the Roman Catholic section of the cemetery. The Rev. Father Ryan conducted the service at the graveside.
