Augusta Isabella Pickering (1862–1943)

The many friends of Mrs. W. Geo. [Augusta Isabella] Pickering, for many years a resident of this district, will regret to learn of her demise which took place at Kalamunda early last week. Deceased was the daughter of the late Wm. and Mrs. Bunbury, and a granddaughter of the late Col. Molloy, one of the first residents of this district. In her earlier years she resided at "Beachlands", and took a prominent part in the social life of the community. The late Mrs. Pickering was a sister-in-law of Mrs. M. C. Bunbury, of Busselton, and Mrs. A. B. Bunbury, of Marybrook. Mr. Pickering, who now resides at Nedlands, was for about six years representative of the Sussex district in the Legislative Assembly.

The funeral took place at the Karrattha cemetery and was attended by a number of friends of the family.
