The death occurred on Monday evening last of Mrs. Marion Tom, of Chintin, at the age of 87 years. The deceased lady came to Victoria from Ayrshire, Scotland, in 1852 in the sailing vessel Ivanhoe, and two years after was married to her late husband Mr J. Tom, with whom she went to his station, Cowl Cowl, on the Lachlan River, New South Wales, their means of conveyence being a tilted cart. After selling the station Mr. and Mrs. Tom came to live at Chintin, were Mr Tom died, and where Mrs. Tom resided up till the time of her death.

Mrs. Tom was a true type of the real Scotch lady, being of a retiring disposition, extremely kind, generous minded, and a very devoted wife and mother. She was one of those brave pioneers who by hard work, dauntless spirit, and, unbounded love of King, country and home, laid the foundation of Australia as a nation. Her very large circle of friends will deeply grieve to hear of her death.

She leaves four daughters and two sons to mourn their loss.

The remains were interred privately at Chintin on Wednesday.
