Obituary - Olive Frances Isabel Tweedie
4 May 1948 The Tumut and Adelong Times
We deeply regret to chronicle the somewhat sudden death of Mrs. Olive Frances Isabel Tweedie, wife of Mr. F. W. Tweedie, which took place at their home, 'Kia Ora,' Wynyard-street, Tumut, on Thursday morning last, following a severe heart attack the previous night.
She had suffered in a degree from heart trouble for several years, which became intensified during the last few months.
About a year ago she consulted a Macquarie Street specialist, following X-ray treatment at Wagga.
Not withstanding medical attention, and the devoted and loving care of her family, all proved unavailing.
On Wednesday night before retiring to bed she experienced a major attack, and although everything possible was carried out quickly during her few hours of suffering she lapsed into unconsciousness and passed quietly away in that manner at 11 o'clock next morning.
Born at Tumut in 1881, Mrs. Tweedie was the eldest daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Howard of this town.
She was married at All Saints' Church, Tumut, in 1900, and the only child born to the marriage was Miss Norma Tweedie, who, with her father, survive.
Brothers and sisters living are: Bertha (Mrs. Ern. McDonald, Tumut), Edgar (Granville), Herbert (Junee), Frank (Windsor, N.S.W.), Thelma (Mrs. Grosch, Wagga).
In early life the Late Mrs. Tweedie had been a Sunday School teacher, a choir member and assisted often in public functions including the Tumut Musical Festival, of which Society she was an energetic committee member.
Latterly, however, she devoted herself to the home and her family. She was a staunch adherent of the Church of England and became endeared to many friends by her kindly, cheerful and sympathetic nature and thoughtfulness for others, amounting to self-aacrifice.
After a short service at All Saints' Church, where the organist, Miss E, R. Bridle, rendered Mrs. Tweedie 's favorite hymns - 'When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,' 'Abide With Me,' 'Rock of Ages,' 'Lead Kindly Light' and others interment took place in Tumut New Cemetery on Friday afternoon, Rev. S. Broadfoot officiating at both services.
The pall-bearers were Messrs. Ern, Mc-Donald (brother-in-law), Reg. King, Cecil Taylor, Arthur and Norman McAlister (cousins).
On behalf of this Press we extend our deepest sympathy to Mr. Tweedie and Miss Norma in their hour of sadness and sorrow.
