Turnbull, Jemima (1851–1937)

from Macleay Chronicle (NSW)

A fine old pioneer lady passed away on Thursday last in the person of the late Mrs. Jemima Turnbull, relict of the late Mr. William Turnbull, of Euroka, who predeceased her about thirteen years ago. Aged 86 years, she was the last surviving member of the original Trees family, of Euroka. Well-known and highly respected by the elder generation of Macleay folk, her passing is deeply regretted by all who knew her, for she possessed all the enduring qualities that typified the folk who pioneered these North Coast districts. Sturdily independent and self-sufficient, yet generous and neighbourly, both she and her husband were ever held in eminent respect. The funeral, under conduct of Mr. Jos. T. Walker, took place on Friday last to Euroka Methodist Cemetery, the Rev. J. N. V. Bullen officiating at the graveside in the presence of a large gathering of friends and relatives.
