Mary Hannah Roberts (c. 1845–1895)

Mrs Charles [Mary] Roberts, of Richmond, took suddenly ill on Monday week last from blood poisoning. Dr Helsham was called in, and was in constant attendance upon the patient until her death, which took place about five o'clock on Wednesday. Deceased who had been a resident of Richmond for many years, was well-known and much-respected. Her remains were interred in the C. of E. cemetery on Thursday last at about 7 pm, the Rev A. Killworth officiating after the arrival of the 6.45 train. Mr Killworth had been in Sydney during Thursday officiating at the marriage ceremony of Mr E. Woodhill and Miss E. Dunstan. The funeral was an exceptionally large and universally sympathetic one; many wreaths were presented. Much sympathy is expressed for the family. Mr Tomkinson had the funeral, the hearse being supplied by Mr Primrose, of Windsor.
