Withycombe, Winifred Jane (1843–1901)

Mrs. Withycombe, relict of the late James Withycombe, died suddenly at her residence, Piercefield, on Tuesday morning. The funeral took place on Wednesday, and notwithstanding the hot weather, was well attended by representative residents of the town and district. The cortege started from Piercefield in the afternoon, and reached St. Alban's Church about 4 o'clock. After the usual burial service in the church, the funeral procession was re-formed and continued its way to the Church of England cemetery, where the interment took place. The burial rites were conducted by the Rev. Canon Regg. The late Mrs. Withycombe who was a sister of Mr. Lipscomb, of West Maitland, was highly respected in this district and greatly esteemed by a large circle of friends throughout the State. She had been in delicate health for some years prior to her death.
