    • Mrs M. Leahy

      General regret was expressed when it was learnt that Mrs Mary Leahy, of Bramston Street, Gladstone, had, died in the District Hospital after an illness of three months duration.
      Mrs Leahy, who was noted for her work over many years for the Catholic Church, came to Gladstone in 1914, and was on the staff of the Railway Department's catering and cleaning service. Born at Dublin, Ireland, in 1872, she was 76 years of age. Her husband predeceased her before she came to Australia. Well known throughout railway circles in the State she continued with the department at Gladstone for 27 years, earning a reputation for efficiency and courtesy. Much of her life was devoted to her church and she was, with her daughter, a member of Our Lady's Star of the Sea Church choir.
      Her only daughter (Nora), Mrs W. Stenhouse, who emigrated with her from Dublin, in 1913, resides at Bramston Street, Gladstone.
      The service at the church was taken by Rev. Father McSherry who also read the service at the graveside.
