We regret to report the death of a widely known and highly respected resident of the Kurrajong district, Mrs. Alice Mitchell which took place in the Richmond Hospital on Monday. Deceased, who was 71 years of age, was the wife of Mr. Robert Mitchell, of 'Fern Hill,' Kurrajong, who we regret to state is also a patient in the Richmond Hospital. The late Mrs. Mitchell had only been a patient in the hospital for three or four days, when she succumbed to pneumonia. She was most charitable in her activities, and was a noble worker for the institution in which she died during the time it was conducted as a public hospital. At the age of 19 years she married Mr. Robert Mitchell, at Maitland, of which township she was a native, and as a young couple they settled down at Kurrajong, where they reared a large family of 13 children, 12 of whom are living, viz., Mrs. Agnes Shepherd (Comleroy Road), Mr. Ernest Mitchell (North Richmond), Sergeant Robert D. J. Mitchell (Wellington district police force), Mr. Chas. Mitchell, Mr. Albert Mitchell (who is ill in Richmond Hospital, but now convalescing), Mr. Herbert J. Mitchell (a leading light in Labor circles in Sydney), Mr. Arthur Mitchell, Misses Alice, Minnie, Mary, and Elsie Mitchell, and Mr. H. Mitchel (Kurrajong). The funeral took place on Tuesday, and after a service in St. Peter's Church of England, Richmond, where the Rev. F. Dillon paid a fitting tribute to the womanly attributes of the deceased, the remains were laid to rest in the North Richmond cemetery. Mr. A. A. Price carried out the funeral arrangements.
