Lady Emily Jane Suttor (1841–1911)

The ranks of the workers in philanthropic movements suffered a loss yesterday in the death of Lady Suttor, wife of Sir Francis Bathurst Suttor, President of the Legislative Council. The deceased lady was daughter of the late Mr. T. J. Hawkins, a pioneer of the western country, who represented East Macquarie in the Legislative Assembly in 1859. Her marriage with Sir Francis Suttor took place in 1863. Lady Suttor was attacked by illness on Sunday while on a visit to Katella station, near Wellington owned by two of her sons. She returned on Monday to her home Tredegar, Darling Point and died there at 1 o'clock yesterday morning. Her energy in the cause of good works is indicated by the fact that she was president of the Bathurst branch of the State Children's Relief Board and a member of the Sydney board, a member of the committee of the Ashfield Home, a member of the council of the District Nursing Association and president of the Woollahra branch of the District Nursing Association.

Lady Suttor leaves issue of three sons and five daughters, viz., Percival William Suttor and Richard Bowling Suttor, of Katella station; Reginald Sydney Suttor, of the Orient S.N. Company, now on a visit to England; Mrs. Consett Stephen, Mrs. Gladstone Hawke (South Africa), Miss Suttor, Mrs. Collum (Sydney), and Mrs. Hughes (Ceylon).

The funeral will leave Tredegar at 10 o'clock this morning for South Head Cemetery.
