Death of Mrs. S. Radnell The following is a reprint from 'Inglewood Advertiser' 2/9/1921 Obituary

The deather occurred on Thursday, 25th August of Mrs. Sarah Radnell. The deceased lasy was highly esteemed in the town and district for her fine life, and she leaves a record behind her that might well be envied. Her life was a reflection of the faith that inspired her, and was the secret source of her long life. Born in Cambridge, England, on March 13th 1828, she Sailed in the sailing vessel "Mary Shepherd" on 15th December 1848, and landed in Victoria on April 3rd, 1849. She arrived in Tarnagulla in the year 1853, and had resided here ever since.

She leaves the following direct descendants - 13 children; 61 grand-children; and 108 great grand-children 180 in all still living.

Many of her descendents laid down their lives in defence of the Empire, and practically all others who could go, served. There are a few in the whole State who could point t osuch a fine record as that of the deceased. Up to a few years ago she enjoyed good health - in fact right up to the end of the heath she was winderful. As liong as she was able she constantly attended the Presbyterian Church, and it was a great treat to she the dear old sol joining the service - sitting in her pew with hands shaking, but although weak in body, strong in soul.

Her reimains were laid to rest in the Tarnagulla Cemetery, the service being conducted by the Rev. J.A. Souter. The pall-bearers were six of the sons and the undertaker, Mr. Wilsmore.
