Hinchliffe, Margaret Isabella (1875–1956)

The death occurred at Ayr, North Queensland, on Sunday, after a short illness, of Mrs. M. I.[Margaret Isabella] Hinchliffe, widow of the late Mr D. Hinchliffe, of Dean Street, North Rockhampton, formerly of Milman.

Mrs. Hinchliffe was born in Achill, Mayo, Ireland, 82 years ago, and came to Rockhampton with her parents when she was seven years old. Her father, who was a school teacher, taught at Bouldercombe up to the time of his death.

After her marriage Mrs. Hinchliffe lived at Bouldercombe, Milman and Rockhampton. She was loved and admired by all with whom she came in contact and was especially noted for her bright, cheery nature and for her generosity and hospitality.

Her husband died in 1951. She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. H. N. Euler (Brisbane), and Mrs. T. Rosel (Ayr), and four sons, Fred (Milman), William (Pialba), Albert (Toowoomba) and Edgar (Ravenshoe).

Two surviving sisters are Mrs. A. C. M. Leigh (Rockhampton) and Mrs. E. Page (Brisbane).

She was laid to rest at the North Rockhampton cemetery yesterday. The Rev. R. O. Bodey (St. Barnabas' Church) was the officiating clergyman.
