Obituary
Mrs. Mary Ann Clay
LEYBURN –The death of Mrs Mary Ann Clay (86), relict of the late Mr Fred Clay; which occurred at Lismore on January 2, 1949, has removed another very old and highly respected resident of Leyburn.
Deceased was a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Bowe, early pioneers of Leyburn, and spent
practically the whole of her life time In the township. She took great pleasure in assisting any
movement which meant progress for the town In which she lived. She was a foundation member of both the Leyburn branch of the Q.C.W.A. and .the Church of England Ladles Guild, and remained an active member of these bodies until falling health forced her to leave Leyburn a few years ago to reside with her daughter, Mrs L.Slattery, in Lismore. Deceased was also for several years a member of the Leyburn school committee.
Her husband predeceased her in 1935 and her only son, William, two years later. The four daughters left to mourn the loss of a loving and devoted, mother are Mesdames
Croft (Elsie), of Texas, Haase (Ella), of Palm Beach, Slattery (Lorna), of Lismore, and Parfitt
(Ruby), of Oxley, Brisbane.
The body was brought from Lismore to St. Augustine's Church of England, Leyburn, where a
short service was conducted by the Rev, Fraser Ham, of Clifton, and later on at the graveside. The funeral to the Leyburn cemetery was largely attended.
