Jane Marriott (1847–1903)

Mr. F. C. Gilbert, formerly secretary of the A.W.A., has received by the Eastern mail a neatly prepared 'in memoriam' card relative to the late Mrs. Jane Marriott, a lady whose charitable acts made her name a household word among the mining populations of Boulder and the Golden Mile. Her genial disposition and her readiness with her purse to help the poor and distressed, and her sympathy with the sick and ailing, made her an ever-welcome factor in the inner life of the people. Many a man she nursed back to life from typhoid fever, without any idea of accepting fee or reward for her services. She resided at Boulder with her husband (Mr. John Marriott) from the year 1895 till the later part of last year, when she left with him to go to her former home in the Newcastle district of New South Wales. Mrs. Marrioitit died there on March 2 last, and was buried in the Charleston Cemetery, near Newcastle. The card has been hung up at the Boulder office of the A.W.A., in token of respect to the memory of one who was always a zealous worker in the cause of the poor.
