Anne Bailey (1853–1916)

Mrs Anne Bailey, widow of the late John Bailey, carrier, of Cooma and an old resident of the town died early on Thursday morning at her residence near the railway Station. The deceased had until recently enjoyed good health, and on Wednesday evening retired early after having attended to her vegetable garden during the afternoon. She then complained of an attack of cramps, and took a remedy, and appeared in her usual state of health. When visited in the morning by Mrs. John Bailey, jnr., it was found that she had died some hours previously. The matter was reported to the Coroner, Mrs. S. B. Gunn, who decided to hold a magisterial enquiry with a view to ascertain the precise cause of death. This was formally opened and adjourned till Monday to admit of a post mortem examination. The funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon, prior to which the remains will be removed to St. Paul's Church, at which the members of the family will be present. Two sons of Mrs Bailey are at the war; and there are two other sons and five daughters, who will be present at the interment.
