This sad event took place at her residence, Nyngan, on Wednesday, the 15th instant. The amiable and accomplished lady died fortified by all the rites of the Holy Mother Church. The deceased was the oldest daughter of Mr. Thomas Cahill, of Erin Vale, near Narromine, and formerly of Geelong and the Mt Mita, Victoria. She was niece of the Mother General of the Good Samaritan Order, New South Wales, and sister of Sister Mary Aquinas, of the Presentation Convent, Hay. Educated by the Good Samartan the Balmain and Wollongong convent, under the late Mother De Sales, she speedily gained University honors. The good nuns of Wollongong were fortunate enough to secure her services for teaching in the higher branches of music, French, drawing, painting, etc, for a period of some seven years. Leaving the Wollongong High School, to the great regret of both Sisters and pupils, who were greatly attached to her, Miss Cahill went to reside with her parents at Geelong, Victoria, for some twelve months prior to her marriage with J. R. Quilty third son of the late M. Quilty, Wollongong, which was solemnised at St. Mary's, Geelong, by the Rev. Father Brazil on the 9 June 1892.

She was head of a branch of the Sacred Heart Society, as also organist, which position she held with entire satisfaction to herself and the whole parish. Mrs. Quilty's (?) from July 8. It was one of the trials of motherhood. Peritonitis set in, and although the best medical aid and nursing was secured, all their skill and care were of no avail. The deceased lady was unremittingly attended to by the good priest, Father Casey, who never witnessed a more prepared and happy death. Father Casey offered Masses on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and on Wednesday said Mass in Mrs. Quilty's bedroom by her bedside, when she was given her last Communion.

Father Casey was by her bedside until she breathed her last. Around her bedside during her last moments, besides her husband and Father Casey, were her father and mother and. brothers, and a young sister. All felt most sympathetically for the sorely afflicted husband in his unspeakably great bereavement. The funeral was an exceptionally large one, being attended by all denominations. At the church, where the remains were taken en route to the cemetery, everyone was deeply affected. Father Casey spoke in most touching terms, saying that Mrs. Quilty's edifying life was worth more than all his preaching. The three brothers of the deceased, Mr. E. Cahill, Narromine, Mr T. J. Cahill, Nyngan, and Mr. Joseph Cahill, Coonamble, were present at the grave. Mrs. Quilty's age was 31 years. She lived a blameless life, and died a holy death.
