Note:

MISS EILEEN PROBERT. Quite a gloom was cast over the town last night when it became known that Eileen Lilian Probert, eldest daughter of Mrs. George Tapper, of Mudgee, and niece of Mr C. Grady, of the Sydney Hotel Mudgee, had passed away after an illness extending over three months. The deceased was only 25 years of age, and was a very bright and cheerful girl, and had the respect and esteem of all who had the pleasure of her acquaintance. Previous to her unfortunate illness the deceased was a young lady exceptionally good physical appearance, and was always the general favourite, and her sad death will be universally regretted by her numerous friends. The deceased had been suffering greatly for the past three months and despite careful medical treatment and ?????? she passed away last evening at 9.45 p.m. The remains will leave the Sydney Hotel tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at 10.30 a.m. and will then be conveyed to the Roman Catholic portion of the General Cemetery. The children of St Mary’s will march at the funeral. Mr H Barton had charge of the funeral arrangements (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Monday 12 August 1918, page 2).

Note:

A Child's Death. DONALD PROBERT. Thus the Scone paper: - The Rouchel friends of Mr. and Mrs. W. Probert, of "Woodlands," Lue, heard with much grief of the death of their little son, which took place at the end of last month. Not having heard of his illness until a wire came stating he was dangerously ill, followed the next day by another announcing that he had passed away, the news was indeed a shock and the most heartfelt sympathy is expressed for the parents in their great loss. Little Donald, the pet of their home, was their only child, and only those who have passed through trouble of a similar kind, can, I think, realise what this means to them. The one little one to need their care and to have his little wants attended to, is gone from them, and the silence of the childish voice and laughter must be excepting for Christian fortitude, almost unbearable. Diphtheria was the means of taking him, and although on his becoming ill he was immediately taken to Mudgee for treatment and given the best attention at the Hospital there, the parents had to return to their lonely home without him. Mr. Probert is not very well-known here, but his wife is a Rouchel native, being a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. T. G. Carter, of "Oakfield," and widely connected here. If sympathy could lighten their grief, then they must be strengthened thereby, for the whole locality feel most deeply for them in their hour of sorrow. Once looking out on their garden sweet, Mid'st flowers with mystical lore, They smiled and listened to tottering feet. But now they are heard no more Would we have him back they cry in pain. With loneliness none can compare No! For he’s safe in the Saviour's arms, In the beautiful home Over There And he will not return to us more But we will work and wait Til we, too, go to the Golden Shore. And enter the pearly gate (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Monday 31 October 1921, page 8).

Note:

DEATH OF A LITTLE BOY. The death of Donald, the six year old son of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Probert, of Lue, took place in the Mudgee Hospital last night with, diphtheria. The little lad will be buried at Lue to-morrow, Mr. J. C. Swords, of Mudgee, being the undertaker. The greatest sympathy will be felt with Mr. and Mrs. Probert in their great bereavement (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 29 September 1921, page 13).
