From The Perenjori Pioneer newspaper, Friday 17 December 1943:
Obituary - The Late Mrs Payne
"On Tuesday morning last, at Morawa hospital, the death occurred of Mrs Payne, wife of Mr W. Payne, of Perenjori. The remains were conveyed to Perenjori, where the funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon in the presence of a large gathering of friends. We were unable to have a representative present at the funeral, but took steps to obtain a report of this, as well as details of the deceased lady. Unfortunately the report had not arrived in time for publication in this issue, but will appear next week. Meanwhile, we join residents of the district in extending sincere sympathy to the bereaved husband and family."
