With the sudden and unexpected passing of Mrs Mary Ann Taylor, Aberdeen has
lost another of its old and highly respected residents. The late Mrs Taylor
was taken ill rather suddenly on Thursday night at her home in Nandowra -
street. Medical aid was immediately summoned, and she was later admitted to
hospital in a serious condition. Coming to Aberdeen about 45 years ago, with
her husband, the couple settled down and soon made many friends. Mr Taylor at
that time was a contractor and was associated with local Council in the early
days. Deceased, who possessed a kindly nature, took a keen interest in many
town organisations in the early days, and was devoted worshipper and
supporter of St Marks Church. She was 74 years of age.
The funeral took place to the Church of England portion of the Aberdeen
Cemetery on Monday afternoon, where the service was conducted by the Rector,
Rev A Mackinlay.
Besides her husband, a grown up family of nine daughters and two sons
survive, namely: Miss Elizabeth Taylor ( Aberdeen ), Mrs B Slattery (
Newcastle ), Mrs J Neasbey ( Sydney ), Mrs H Wright ( Sydney ), Mrs R Ekert (
Maitland ), Mrs A Mead ( Maitland ), Mrs S Morgan ( Bulli ), Mrs L Harrison (
Aberdeen ), Miss Gertie Taylor ( Aberdeen ), Messrs: F Taylor ( Aberdeen )
