Bush Advocate, 16 March 1909 KIRITAKI - It is with very great regret that I have this week to chronicle the serious illness of Mrs Peter Anderson. For some time past Mrs Anderson has been in indifferent health, and at last consulted a doctor who at once advised her removal to the hospital. Some inward growth is feared, but whether of the nature of an abscess or some more serious trouble canot yet be determined. The many firneds of the family will unite in hoping for the patient's complete restoration to health
Bush Advocate, 21 April 1909 KIRITAKI - It is with very great regret that I have to record the death of Mrs P.

All that skill could devise or love perform was done to combat the disease, but it was of no avail, and now we can only offer our sincere sympathy to the bereaved relatives in their grief. Of a most unselfish and happy disposition, the late Mrs Anderson will be sorely missed by both relatives and friends, but it is comforting to know that her end was peace, that death came to her not as "the king of terrors," but as one opening the door into that life where suffering and sorrow are not, and there are no more tears
