Mary Ann Wych (1850–1942)

A link with the early history of Liverpool was severed on Sunday last, when Mrs. Mary Ann Wych. relict of the late Mr. Augustus Wych, sen., passed away at the home of her daughter, Miss Winifred, of Lilyfield. Mrs. Wych had reached the great age of 92 years, and died on her birthday.

All surviving members of the family gathered at the home for the birthday occasion, and were present when death claimed her.

Mrs. Wych had been ill for a little over a week. Up to that time she was still able to move about.

The surviving members of the family are: Peter (Moorebank), Mrs. Bratchel (Liverpool), Mrs. McNulty (Guildford), and Miss Winifred (Lilyfield).

The children who predeceased their mother were: Mr. Gus Wych. jun., Mrs. P. Murray, Miss Charlotte, and Mr. Roger Wych.
