Molong Express 28-3-1917

The residents of Manildra and District were greatly shocked and grieved to hear of the sad death of Mrs Amy Newlove FROGLEY, the dearly loved wife of Richard FROGLEY of Manildra, and the daughter of Mrs and the late Mr Richard Bradley, for many years residents of Garra and Molong and lately of Mosman, Sydney.

The sad event took place at a private hospital at Glebe, Sydney, on Friday morning on the 20th instant, after an operation for appendicitis.  The deceased lady was spending a holiday in Sydney with her husband and relatives and was in the best of health.

While attending the Easter Show she complained of being ill, and later consulted a doctor, who advised her immediate removal to a private hospital, where an operation was performed.  The operation was successful and for four days the patient made satisfactory progress.  Unfortunately unfavourable symptoms then developed, resulting in her death.

The body was conveyed to Manildra by passenger train and on Saturday morning was met by the Rev. J. Thomas and a large number of relatives and friends, and was carried to the Methodist Church.

The Rev. Thomas conducted a very impressive service in the church on Saturday afternoon and immediately afterwards the funeral procession left for the Methodist portion of the Garra Cemetery, where the interment took place.  The funeral was one of the largest ever witnessed in this district, relatives from near and far being present at the graveside.

The deceased lady was held in the highest esteem and respect, and was loved by all who knew her.  She was of a charitable disposition and was always one of the first to assist anyone in distress, and any charitable or deserving cause always had her deepest sympathy and help.  She was a great worker for the Methodist Church, and it was largely due to her untiring energies that the handsome building now standing near her late residence was erected a few years ago.

As one of the principal members of the church choir, her services were always cheerfully given in all church matters, and her loss will be severely felt by the church as well as by the people of the surrounding district.

The deceased, who was born at Garra was in the prime of her life, being only 39 years of age at the time of her death.

Four little daughters and a sorrowing husband are left to mourn her loss and to them in their hour of trial, we extend our deepest sympathy.
