Rosalie Stephanie Horsington (1882–1946)

The death occurred yesterday morning in her 64th year of Mrs. [Rosalie Stephanie] Horsington, wife of Mr. E. M. Horsington, M.L.A., after a long illness. She is survived by Mr. Horsington and daughter, Hilda May (Mrs. Tinkler). The late Mrs. Horsington had been ill for many years, and had been practically bed-ridden over the last 18 months at her home at Waverley. The end came peacefully this morning. The remains will be interred in the Roman Catholic portion of the South Head Cemetery this morning after a service at St. Patrick's Church, Bondi. The Bondi service will be read by the Rev. Father Murray.

The late Mrs. Horsington was born in South Australia, but came to Broken Hill when very young. Mr. and Mrs. Horsington had two daughters. One, Mavis, died some years ago in Broken Hill.

For many years Mr. and Mrs. Horsington resided in Broken Hill. They moved to Sydney after Mr. Horsington was elected to the State Parliament. Their residence in Broken Hill was in Kaolin Street, between Williams and Thomas Streets.

Mrs. Horsington was of fine personality, and had a host of friends.

The first information regarding Mrs. Horsington's death was received in Broken Hill early yesterday afternoon, when Mr. W. E. Dickson, Assistant Minister, telephoned 'B.D.T.'

Mr. Dickson: 'Mrs. Horsington's death follows many years of acute suffering borne most stoically. Her death is widely regretted and our fullest sympathy goes to Ted, his daughter (Mrs. Tinkler) and other relatives.

Soon after, Mr. M. A. Davidson, M.L.A., telegraphed 'B.D.T.' as follows:— 'Mrs. Horsington died this morning after bravely resisting ill-health for many years.'
