    The late Mrs Fitzgibbon was a native of this city, being the only daughter of the late Mr and Mrs Samuel Burgess, who came to Australia from Somerset, England, many years ago and took up residence on the Sydney Road. She resided here all her life, and retained a valuable knowledge of Old Goulburn. Mrs Fitzgibbon was possessed of a very retentive memory and was able to reflect in interesting fashion regarding early life in the city.
    She was educated at the old denominational school in the former Anglican Church at North Goulburn, now used as a private residence. She attended most public functions held in Goulburn in past years, she being present at the planting of the Lady Belmore oak in Belmore Park and at the opening of the Goulburn Railway. She often recounted an incident at the latter function, when the curate's horse took fright at the engine on the first train and bolted. She witnessed many other interesting happenings, including the opening of the extension line from Crookwell to Caralga, the opening of the Presbyterian Ladies College, and the Goulburn Was Memorial.
    Mrs Fitzgibbon possessed many interesting mementoes including a splendid album of English photographs, the marriage certificate of her parents in England in 1846 and the cedar trunk used by them on the trip to Australia. A clock owned by her was purchased from Mr J Mayo an old Goulburn watchmaker, on the day the Salvation Army opened in Goulburn about half a century ago. This is still a regular timekeeper.
    The late Mrs Fitzgibbon was of a quiet and retiring disposition, and had many friends and acquaintances. She was associated with the Salvation Army Home League for many years. For some years she resided at the residence of her only daughter, the late Mrs A B Beer, Lagoon Street and later took up residence in Bourke Street. She is survived by a grandson and granddaughter; Miss Myra Beer and Mr H J Beer both of Goulburn.
    The funeral took place at 3 o'clock this afternoon, the remains being interred in the old portion of the Wesleyan Cemetery.
