OBITUARY
MRS ELIZABETH JONES
Sincere regreat[sic] was expressed by her very many friends when it became known that Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Jones, aged 69, had passed away at her home, "Ardell," Melrose street, Condobolin, at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, 25th August.
Deceased was born at Lyndock Valley, South Australia, on 4th September, 1867. There, in September, 1892 she was married to Reece Vaughan Jones. They lived in the Nhill and Birchip district Victoria, until 1910, when they removed to Henty, New South Wales. From there they came to Condobolin about 26 years ago and settled at Clifton farm, and next at St. Ives, both close to the town of Condobolin. They moved in to town three years ago.
As a kind woman and devoted mother she will be sadly missed by a bereaved husband and family of sons—Ross, Victor, Ivan, Eric, Percy, Ewen and Max.
The burial took place in the Church of England portion of the local cemetery on Thursday at 11.30 a.m., this hour being fixed to enable, the .Rev. W. C. Arnold to come across from Wyalong to officiate.
To the bereaved ones we extend our sincere sympathy.
