Obituary in The Catholic Press 6th August 1936:

Mrs. Sarah Kelly. Bathurst lost one of its oldest and most widely known identities with the death, on the 30th ult., of Mrs. Sarah Kelly, of William Street. Up to four months ago Mrs. Kelly was in perfect health, despite her advancing years. Born 84 years ago at Hill End, she retained to the last vivid recollections of the early days of that historic goldfield. An accomplished horsewoman in her younger days, it was little hardship for her to ride from Hill End to Mudgee, a distance of 50 miles. She remembered the findings by Byers and Holtermann of their famous nugget, and many other highlights in the development of Hill End. Her husband, Mr. Thomas Kelly, died 33 years ago. She is survived by two brothers, Messrs. Archer Palmer (Hill End) and Fred Money Palmer (retired postmaster at Bondi), and by a family of four sons, Messrs. William Kelly (Bathurst), Arthur (Sydney), Frederick (Tarana) and Alan (Sydney), and two daughters, Mrs. J. Stevens (Katoomba) and Miss Ida Kelly (Bathurst). Two other sons, Messrs. Albert and Harry Kelly, predeceased her, the latter having lost his life at the war. The funeral moved from her late residence for the Catholic portion of Bathurst Cemetery. At the chapel and the grave side prayers were recited by Rev. Father Cotter, C.M., and Rev. Father Emelhainz. The chief mourners were brothers, sons and grandsons of the deceased. The pallbearers were her sons and grandsons, Messrs. Arthur, Allen and Bert, and Reg. Stevens. — R.I.P.
