Mary Ann Everingham (1855–1947)

Narromine lost one of its oldest residents last weekend with the passing of Mary Ann Everingham at the age of 93 years.

Tarelga was the birthplace of Mrs. Everingham — formerly Miss Mary Ann Halls — but she lived in Narromine for many years, until she left for Sydney. When she was sixty she travelled to America and stayed there for two years. On her return to Australia she once again took up residence in Sydney, and lived there until about eight years ago when she came to Narromine to live with her son.

A fractured thigh made Mrs. Everingham an inmate of the Dubbo base hospital for twelve months, and for the past sixteen months she had lived with Mr. and Mrs. R. Everingham as a cripple.

Her husband died 28 years ago. One daughter and five sons as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren survive to mourn the loss of their mother.

The funeral took place at Dubbo on Monday.
