Ida Emmeline Edwards (1869–1896)

MRS. W. T. EDWARDS, wife of the manager of Maharatta Station, died suddenly on Friday evening last (writes our Bombala correspondent). Mrs. Edwards was for many years a resident of the Cooma district. She had only been living here a short time, but had taken an active part in the charitable work of the town. The coffin was completely hidden by floral emblems sent by friends and relatives. The Church of England burial service was read by Rev. G. P. Metcalfe, of Bombala, and Rev. F. Bevan, incumbent of the Bega parish. The Rev. Bevan, delivered an impressive address at the grave
