Louisa Armfield (1842–1912)

The death occurred in the hospital at Bowral on Sunday of an old and well known resident of the district in the person of Mrs. J. D. [Louisa] Armfield, who had reached the age of 70 years. The deceased underwent a serious operation for an internal complaint on Saturday, and although she bore up bravely she gradually sank and death supervened. The late Mrs. Armfield, who was a daughter of the late Mr. Richard Bunter, had resided in Berrima for fully half a century. She was well known for her many charitable acts, and her kindly disposition had endeared her to a wide circle of friends. The deceased leaves a husband but no children. The funeral will leave the hospital at Bowral for the Berrima cemetery at 11 o'clock this morning.
