We are very sorry to have to record the death which took place at her residence, on Saturday last, of Mrs Gilmore, wife of Mr William Gilmore, Tooborac, after an illness of about a week. The cause of death was internal hæmorrhage. The deceased, who with her husband, has been resident in Tooborac for many years, was 67 years of age, was a native of Cork, Ireland, and came to Victoria about 50 years ago. She leaves her husband, and five sons and two daughters, all of whom are grown up, to mourn their sad loss; one child having died in infancy. The large number who attended the funeral to the Heathcote Cemetery on Monday - there were upwards of forty buggies and several horsemen - to pay their last tribute of respect, speaks well for the esteem in which the deceased was held. The burial service was conducted by the Rev. G. S. Moorhead, who delivered a very impressive address at the graveside. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs. Perry Bros.
