Esther Maria Grono (1834–1898)

The death of Miss [Esther Maria] Grono was briefly referred to in our last issue. Deceased, who had been an invalid for some years, died at her late residence, Grono Park, near Pitt Town, (formerly the home of Captain Grono, of the Royal Navy, who was her grandfather), on Thursday last. The late Miss Grono was widely known throughout the Hawkesbury District, and was held in very high esteem, a fact which was testified to by the large number who attended the funeral, and by the many beautiful floral tributes sent by friends. She was the owner of the Grono Park Estate, and was 66 years of age at the time of her death. The funeral cortege proceeded by water to the Ebenezer Presbyterian cemetery, where it was joined by a large number of other persons. The interment was conducted by Rev R. Edgar, and the funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr T. Primrose.
