Mrs. Percy Kilsby.-An obituary notice
in the " Watch " of Saturday informed the
friends of Mr. Percy Kilsby, of Glenmore,
Monbulla, of the sad bereavement which
befel him in the death of his dearly be-
loved wife Emma, which occurred suddenly
on the previous afternoon, at Mount Gam-
bier. Mrs. Kilsby came down to the Mount
Gambier show, and whilst here became ill.
It was found that a rather serious opera-
tion was necessary, and it was performed
by Drs. Johnson and Muir. She progressed
apparently satisfactorily until Friday morn-
ing, when she had a bad turn and died in
a few hours. As soon as she had the
relapse a telegram was sent to Mr. Kilsby
at Penola, but he was unable to reach
Mount Gambier in time to see his wife
alive. The deceased was a daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Pasfield, of Yahl, and
was only 29 years of age, having been
born on October 14, 1881. She was
married in August, 1905, to Mr. Kilsby,
who is the second son of Mr. G. H. Kilsby,  
of Mount Gambier. Since her marriage
her residence was Glenmore. She leaves
one child, a little girl, four years old. The
deceased was of a sweet and kindly dispo-
sition, and was much loved by all her
friends. Before her marriage she was or-
ganist of the Methodist church at Yahl,
and an active church worker otherwise;
and at Penola also she took part in church
work. Her death is a great blow to Mr.
Kilsby, and much sympathy is expressed
for him in his bereavement. The funeral
of the deceased on Sunday afternoon was
very numerously attended, showing the re-
spect in which she was held by her many
friends. The hearse was drawn by two
white horses, and the pall bearers, who
rode in front of it, rode white horses. The
two vehicle in which the chief mourners
rode were also drawn by white horses. The
Revs. W. H. Cann and H. P. Allen con-
ducted the funeral service at the grave.
Mr. G. B. Renfrey carried out the funeral
