MRS. COAKLEY.

Widespread expressions of sympathy were received by the sons, daughters and relatives of the late Mrs. Jane Frances Coakley, who died aged 72 at Shepparton on May 4 1934 following an operation and short illness. Jane Coakley,born in Wodonga was a continuous resident of Shepparton since 1882.

It was said that "because of her lovable nature the news of her death was received with profound regret on all sides. " Described as a very generous supporter of the Church, and devoted to her Church and family, "she was possessed of a most kindly and charitable disposition, those beautiful qualities of nature engendered by true Catholic faith, and so noticeable in pioneer Catholics of Shepparton and other country centres."

During WWI, Jane Coakley worked untiringly for the local Red Cross Society and for many years was a conspicuous figure in the Ladies' Benevolent Society.

"Since her arrival in Shepparton, the deceased lady rendered valuable assistance in all affairs associated with her beloved St. Brendan's, the clergy, and the Sisters of Mercy."
