  • Notes 
    • Mrs Ferris, wife of the late Edward Ferris, of Armidale, has passed away. In the Biblical sense, it may be truthfully said of this fine old lady that she died full of years - i.e. her life had been well spent in Christian and civil serivce. Her husband, a great athlete, injured himself internally while participating in sports at Armidale when he was 21, and this rendered him an invalid until his death 15 years later. In spite the great handicap, his good wife, faced things out, her patient disposition, brave spirit and neighborly kindness winning through. Friends speak of her kindly disposition in terms of high esteem. There was always a steaming kettle on the hob, and ever a ready helping hand for neighbours in illness. Naturally, the late Mrs Ferris exercised a kindly influence over a wide circle of friends who, although she reached the great age of 78, could not but echo a pang of regret at her passing. [6]

    • Row 16 B Plot 29-31
