Jemima Jane Reynolds (1838–1888)

I have with regret to chronicle the rather sudden death of Mrs. Jemima Jane Reynolds, wife of Mr. T. O. Reynolds, well and favourably known in the district. Mrs. Reynolds was afflicted with heart disease, and suddenly succumbed to her complaint on Monday morning about 3 o'clock. The funeral took place on Tuesday, Mr. T. Collison being the undertaker. The remains of deceased were interred in the cemetery at Wilberforce, and were followed to the grave by a large number of relatives and friends. Deceased was highly respected, was a native of Wilberforce, and leaves ten children, most of whom are well up in years.
