Emma Anne Angel (1857–1946)

The death occurred at Lewisham Hospital at a late hour last night of Mrs. Emma A. Angel, of 42 Trail-street, Wagga, widow of the late Sam Angel, sen., at the age of 88 years. A daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Morgan Power, Mrs. Angel was born at Lake Albert, where she was married. Her husband, who followed farming and grazing pursuits all his life, was particularly well-known in the district. He predeceased her about seven years ago. Mrs. Angel is survived by a family of two sons and two daughters— Mr. Albert Angel, of Wagga, Mr. Sam Angel, of Mangoplah, Mrs. R. Hanson, of Trail-street, Wagga, and Mrs. Norman Wyld, of Lithgow.
