Hannah Agnes Carmody (1860–1915)

Profound regret was felt throughout the district when the news was learned that Mrs. D. J. [Hannah Agnes] Carmody, of Nelson's Plains, had passed away at her daughter's residence in Morpeth (Mrs. E. Connolly) where she had been removed some time ago to be close to medical aid. The deceased lady, who was 55 years of age, was a native of Hunter-street, Raymond Terrace, and was a daughter of the late Wm. Rennix. She was noted for her kindly and generous disposition, and will be sadly missed from her home and by a large circle of neighbours and friends. She leaves a husband and family of five boys and four girls, four of whom are married, and was the aunt of the late Sergeant Larkin, M.L.A., and Private Martin Larkin, who were killed in action at the Dardanelles. The remains were interred in the Roman Catholic cemetery on Wednesday last, the cortege being a very lengthy one. The Rev. Father O' Flynn officiated at the graveside. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved family in their bereavement.
