From The Western Mail newspaper, Friday 19 June 1914:
Death of Mrs. Philip Lynch
"It was under rather sad circumstances that the death occurred of Mrs. Lynch, wife of Mr. Philip Lynch, of Three Springs, at the St. John of God Hospital last week. Some months ago the deceased lady had not been enjoying her usual good health, and it was then decided that she should take a sea voyage for rest and change. For a time the trip appeared to have effected a marked improvement in her condition, as she speedily recovered her wonted vigour and cheery disposition. But. no sooner had she returned to her home at Three Springs, than unmistakable signs of her threatened malady reappeared. After spending some time under the attentive care of Dr. Hungerford, Geraldton, the prospects of her recovery brightened, soon, however, her illness became so serious that her removal to St. John of God Hospital was imperative. About a week ago her condition was so acute that her brother-in-law, Senator P. J. Lynch, hastened from the Federal Parliament. The deceased leaves a husband and eight young children to mourn her untimely death at 41 years of age. The funeral took place on Saturday, and the interment was made in the Roman Catholic portion of the Karrakatta Cemetery. The pall-bearers were Messrs. P. O'Loghlen and Walter Dwyer, M's.L.A. J. J. Lloyd (Deputy Postmaster-General), P. Hunt, Frank Walker, and J. Monaghan. The chief mourners were Mr. Philip Lynch (husband), Masters Patrick, John, Thomas, Philip, James, and Peter (sons), Senator P. J. Lynch (brother-in-law) and Mrs. Lynch, Mr. P. Smith (nephew), and Mr. and Mrs. Breen. The service at the graveside was conducted by the Rev. Father O'Neill. Messrs. Bowra and O'Dea carried out the funeral appointments."
