Assunta Palazzi (1848–1912)

The friends of Mr Baptist Palazzi, for many years a resident of the Wagga district and now of Sans Souci, Sydney, will regret to learn of the death of his wife, Assunta Palazzi, which took place at Sans Souci on 6th December, at the age of 64 years. The deceased had been ailing for about two years, but it was not until about a month ago that her relatives had cause for anxiety. Since then she gradually sank, passing away in her sleep on Friday last. Her remains were interred in the Roman Catholic portion of the Woronora cemetery, Sutherland, near Sydney, and the esteem in which she was held was shown by the large number of friends who attended the funeral. The pall-bearers were her sons. In addition to her husband there is a family of six sons and three daughters to mourn their loss – J. P. and L. D. Palazzi, Inspectors, Water and Sewerage Board, Sydney; V. F. Palazzi, Cunnamulla, Queensland; Silvio (Sid) A. Palazzi, Wagga; H. H. and F. B. Palazzi, Sans Souci; Nurse Winchester, Sans Souci; Matron Palazzi, Wyalong; Miss Victoria (Pat) Palazzi, Educational Department, Sydney. A son of the deceased, Joseph Palazzi, was a member of the First Contingent that went to the Boer War and was shot in South Africa in 1900. A monument to his memory is erected in the Newtown Park.
