During her last illness the deceased lady had received tine consolations of the Catholic faith from, the Rev. Fathers O'Gorman and Sherin, and after life's fitful fever she sleeps well' beside her husband in the Waverley cemetery. The funeral on Friday in last week was attended by many well-known literary people of both sexes, who stood around the grave sadly and reverently as Father O'Gorman, assisted by Father Sherin, performed the last offices of the Church'. Mrs. Daley is survived by two sons and two daughters, one of the latter of whom is with her paternal aunt in India. PERSONAL (1906, December 1).Freeman's Journal (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1932), p. 19.
