Mary Corbett (1880–1924)

Very sad was the demise of the widow of the late Mr. Michael Corbett. Not more than 10 or 11 weeks had gone since her husband had passed away in London. Ever since the shock of his sudden death Mrs. Corbett has been utterly crushed and a great number of her friends saw her remains to their last resting place, and the floral tributes were numerous and beautiful.
