Emily Louisa Lee (1843–1904)

We observe with regret that the death is announced of Mrs. [Emily Louisa] Lee, the wife of the Hon. George Lee, of Leeholme, Bathurst. The death of the deceased lady was altogether unexpected as she had been in her usual health up to a few days before her decease. Mrs. Lee was a native of Bathurst district, being a daughter of the late Mr. Thos. Kite of Kelso. She leaves a family of eight, two sons and six daughters. Mrs. Lee was extremely popular throughout the Bathurst district and her loss will be keenly felt by a large circle of relatives and friends.
