CHAMBERS—At the residence of her
sister, Mrs Wasley, Hawthorn, on 28th March, Margaret, beloved wife of Mr George Chambers, of Avoca, and youngest sister of Mr Edward Randall. Aged 61.
MRS GEO. CHAMBERS.
Sincere and widespread regret was felt when it became known that Mrs Chambers, wife of our esteemed townsman, Mr George Chambers, had passed away in Melbourne on Wednesday. The deceased lady had been ailing for some time, and was taken to the metropolis for treatment. Despite the most skilful care and attention, however, the patient gradually sank, and died at the residence of her sister, Mrs Wasley, of Hawthorn. Throughout her illness Mrs Chambers bore up with Christian fortitude, and now that this good lady has gone she will be deeply mourned. Kind-hearted and generous, Mrs Chambers was ever ready to help others in cases of sickness and distress, and she performed many kindly acts which the world knew nothing about. She did good in an unostentatious manner, and her demise is greatly deplored. She leaves a grown-up family, including Sapper Bert Chambers, who was recently wounded whilst fighting for King and country. The sorrowing husband, children, and other relatives have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends in their bereavement. Mrs Chambers was 61 years of age. The deceased lady was a sister of Mrs Edward Randall, of Avoca. The interment took place at Hawthorn on Thursday.
