    2. [S9] Maitland Mercury, 19 Feb 1910.
      The many friends in this district learned
      with profound regret of the death of Mrs.
      Michael Kealy, which sad event took
      place on Thursday last; February 10, at
      her late residence, Fosterton, Dungog. The
      deceased lady received a severe shock by

      the news of the death of her son, William,
      at Cairns, North Queensland, 12 months ago
      last August. From this sad blow she never
      seemed to completely rally but it was not un-
      til November last that the shock made it-
      self severely felt. In November she was
      seized with an attack of hemorrhage of the
      brain, and although having received the
      skilful treatment of Dr. Nieuman, who
      was unremitting in his attention, and all
      that could possibly be done for her by a
      loving husband and most affectionate fam-
      ily, death occurred as above stated. The
      deceased led a most exemplary life, and
      died fully fortified by the rites of her Holy
      Church. She had the extreme pleasure of
      seeing at her bedside the whole of her fam-
      ily including her daughter Sister M. Doro-
      thea of St. Joseph's Convent. Her spiritual
      advisers were the Rev. Fathers Meagher
      and O'Shea, the Sisters of St. Joseph be-
      ing also constantly in attendance. The late
      Mrs. Kealy was a daughter of the late
      John Bowe, of Morpeth, and was 53 years
      of age. She is survived by her husband
      and a faimily of six sons and five daugh-
      ters. The interment took place on Friday
      in the Dungog cemetery, and was largely
      attended . The chief mourners were — hus-
      band, sons (Patrick, John, James, and Her-
      bert), brothers (John and Matthew Bowe),
      also John Tierney, of Dungog, and P. T.
      Hickey, of Bolwarra, brothers-in-law. The
      Rev. Father Meagher, officiated at the grave-
      side. Much sympathy is felt for the sor-
      rowing husband and family.
