    "Under somewhat sudden circumstances, the death occurred in the North Midlands District Hospital at Three Springs on Monday evening last of Mrs Jean Newton, wife of Mr Cecil Newton, of Mingenew, and the news of this distressful event came in the nature of an extreme shock to residents of the district generally. The deceased lady, who was thirty-seven years of age, was a daughter of two former residents of Mingenew, in Mr and Mrs C. M. Caldow, had resided in the district for the greater portion of her life and was an extremely popular member of the community.
     In the president of quite a large gathering, the funeral took place in the Catholic Cemetery at Mingenew on Wednesday morning last with the Very Rev. B. Gallagher officiating a church service and also at the graveside. In addition to the bereaved husband, the deceased lady is survived by two children (John and Colin), an infant daughter having predeceased her mother in a city hospital on Sunday last."
