Ann Helen Cunynghame (1844–1920)

Mrs. Sidney [Ann Helen] Cunynghame, sen., of Back Creek, near Oberon, has died, at the age of 71. Deceased, who had been a life-long resident of the district, has left a husband and family (all grown up) to mourn their loss. For some years this good lady has been in failing health, and on several occasions during the last few months was seriously ill, but again rallied, so that the end to long suffering comes as a happy release. The deceased lady was well known and greatly respected. In cases of sickness or distress she was one of the first on the scene to offer assistance. The sympathy of the whole district goes to the bereaved family.
