Death. - I regret to report the death of Mrs Clarke, of this town. The deceased had been ailing for a considerable time, and at intervals during her illness she brightened up, but despite all the care and attention that human hands could give she passed away to the Great Beyond on Saturday afternoon. Deceased, who was the mother of Mrs W. Johnston and Mrs Slapp, both of Rylstone, and Mr E. Clarke, was well known and respected in the district. I extend my sincere sympathy to the family in their sad affliction (Mudgee Guardian and North-Western Representative, Thursday 20 June 1907, page 15).
