About the middle of July 1934 the unfortunate young lady became ill, and despite ail that medical skill could do. Miss Mitchell gradually sank and died on Monday afternoon, July 23. Before her departure for Melbourne the deceased took an-active part in the social life of Apsley,-"being an active (worker for the
    Presbyterian Church, and she was also interested in tennis and golf.The remains were conveyed to Apsley for interment, and the funeral on Wednesday was largely attended.
