OBITUARY : SARAH ELLEN KITCHING

FROM JAN AND BARRY MAURICE

SARAH ELLEN KITCHING.

 

SHORTLY after noon last Saturday Mrs Sarah Ellen Kitching wife of Robert Kitching,collapsed at her home 13 ? Street, Campbelltown and passed away  shortly afterwards.  The late Mrs Kitching who was 74 years of age although only recently having medical treatment was apparently quite well and in good health when her husband left home to do their ordinary Saturday morning shopping and it was while he was away  that the collapse of his wife took place. Before he could get home after receiving word of his wife’s illness she has passed peacefully away.

To those of us who knew the late Mrs Kitching, knew only a woman of very stirling quality one who ever expressed a sweet and charming personality with tender motherly love. We join our readers in expressing to Mr Robert Kitching and his family our deep and sincere sympathy.  The loss to the Kitching family  is a broken link of a glorious chain which can never be rejoined.

The deceased lady was Miss SARAH ELLEN SANDERS before her marriage to her bereaved husband  which took place in Sydney just fifty years ago , the wedding ceremony being performed by the late Rev Bolger who at that time in 1896 was the first Congregational Minister in Campbelltown. In the same year of their union Mr and Mrs Robert Kitching took up residence in N ? where they resided until thirteen years ago when the old couple came to live in Campbelltown.  Of the issue there were ? son and two daughters , (1) Mr Kitching of Auburn, Effie Hunt ( also of Auburn) and ? ? of Campbelltown. As a grandmother Mrs Kitching leaves 13 grandchildren. Mrs Taylor late of Appin and now of Campbelltown is her sister and THE ONLY SURVIVING MEMBER OF THE SANDERS FAMILY.

The internment of the mortal remains were placed to rest in God’s Sacr ?????? adjoining St Peters Church of England  last Monday morning following a short service in the church
