Catherine Mitchell Dalzell (1864–1891)

Very general regret is being felt by the inhabitants of Cawarral and surrounding district at the removal by death from amongst them, of Mrs. P. E. [Catherine Mitchell] Dalzell who was cut down in the flower of life, and who was deservedly respected and beloved for her amiable, and ladylike qualities, and who will be long remembered and regretted by rich and poor in this district. Much sympathy is also felt for Mr. Dalzell in his bereavement. All those employed on the mines, together with the business people of the township, followed Mrs. Dalzell's remains to their resting place in the Rockhampton Cemetery, as a last tribute of respect to one whom they one and all held in the highest esteem.
