The death occurred at Orange Base Hospital on Thursday evening, June 5th of an old and highly respected resident of Manildra, in the person of Miss Henrietta Frogley.

Death was due to a haemorrhage of the brain.  The deceased had complained of feeling unwell on the previous Saturday morning, and relatives promptly contacted Orange Ambulance, which conveyed her to the Orange Base Hospital.  There she lapsed into unconsciousness, and passed away as stated above.

The late Miss Frogley was born in Bathurst 79 years ago, a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs John Price Frogley, pioneer residents of Garra.  She came there with her parents at an early age and later moved to Manildra where she resided the rest of her life.

The deceased was well known and highly esteemed in this district, her friends being many, as she was the possessor of one of the most charitable natures and her kindly acts were numerous.  The town and district will be the poorer for her passing.

She was the proprietress of a boarding house in the town for many years, until retiring seven [7[ years ago, on account of advancing years.  Up till this recent and fatal illness Miss Frogley had been free from major illness, and was in full possession of her faculties, despite her great age.

Surviving relatives are 2 sisters, Mesdames C. Hodges [Forbes] and H. Burgess [Manildra].  Two brothers Messrs John and Richard Frogley predeceased her.  The latter who died two [2] years ago was one of the best known figures in the west.
