Death of Mrs. Douthat – Tarnaguila Courier – 16th July, 1904
The news of the death of Mrs. Douthat widow of the late Manuel Douthat of Waanyarra was received with unfeigned regret on Tuesday morning. The deceased lady had been suffering for some time from an internal complaint and had been attended to by Dr. Wolfenden but he soon found out that her case was beyond the aid of human skill and she passed away in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Mrs. Douthat was a native of Jones’ Creek, and was much liked by all who knew her. She was 47 years of age. Mrs. Douthat leaves a family of three sons and one daughter who mourn the loss of a loving mother, who have the sympathy of the whole district.
The funeral took place at Tarnagulla cemetery on Sunday and the cortege was a long one. The Reverend George Hollow read the Church of England burial service at the grave and Mr. Roper carried out the funeral arrangements with his usual ability.
