Lady Alice Augusta Morgan (1856–1933)

Lady Morgan, widow of the late Sir Arthur Morgan, Kt., died at her home at Indooroopilly yesterday at the age of 77 years. The deceased was the eldest daughter of the late Mr. Henry Edward Clinton, and for the greater part of her life resided at Warwick. Lady Morgan during her active life took a deep interest in all public welfare movements but kept clear of politics. On one occasion, when his services to the State were being recognised at a public banquet and presentation in Warwick, Sir Arthur Morgan was able to place on record, in reply to a tribute to his wife, that she had never made an enemy for him. Of late Lady Morgan had been in failing health. The depression and its attendant suffering made a marked impression upon her spirit and nature. Hitherto, within her means, the helper of all in need, she fretted visibly under her lessened capacity to do good. She is survived by five sons—Arthur, Franklin, Beresford, and Roland—all of Brisbane; and Harold, of Sydney; also three daughters—Mrs. Reginald Robinson (Rockhampton), Mrs. J. B. Kerr (Kilcoy), and Miss Morgan (Brisbane).
