Catherine Ann Farlow (1860–1949)

With sincere regret we record the passing of a fine old Freeman's Reach resident in Mrs. Catherine Ann Farlow, relict of the late James William Farlow, the sad event taking place at the home of her daughter, Mrs. R. Hibbert, on June 13, in her 90th year. She is survived by three daughters, Mesdames Cunningham (Northern Rivers), Ezzy (Windsor) and Hibbert (Freeman's Reach) and six sons, Harold and Alwyn (Leichhardt), Reg ('George') and Arthur (Windsor), Fred (Penrith) and James (Riverstone), to whom the sincere sympathy of a big circle of district friends is offered in their bereavement. The funeral took place on the following day when, after a service in St. Matthew's Church, Windsor, the remains were laid to rest in the adjoining Church of England cemetery.
