Mrs Moffett, wife of Mr W. J. Moffett, Invercargill, passed away at her residence, Esk street, on Monday last, aged 62 years. Mrs Moffett, who arrived in Inverlargill in 1862, was highly esteemed by a wide circle of friends, among whom her name was a synonym for kindness and hospitality. The 'deceased lady, who had witnessed the growth of Invercargill from a bush settlement to a city, could recall, with a charm all her own, some of the more humorous incidents in the early life of the community. The flight of years served only served to enhance the good qualities of our late townswoman, and the news of her death brought keen sorrow to many beyond her own household, to whom in their grief the heartfelt sympathy of Southlandors is extended. The funeral took place on Wednesday, the remains being interred in St. John’s cemetery, the venerable Archdeacon Stocker conducting the service. The coffin was covered with wreaths, and the attendance of mourners was very large.
