1937/12/22 ~ SWL01 ~ Amelia Bertha (Albietz) Hinschen


The sad news was received in Proserpine on Wednesday morning of the

death of Mrs. August Hinschen, Senr., which took place in Sydney that morning.

It is only recently that Mr. August Hinschen disposed of his farming interests

in Proserpine and only a few weeks since Mr. and Mrs. Hinschen left Proserpine for Sydney, who they intended to reside.

We understand that Mrs. Hinschen contracted a cold while journeying to Sydney, which developed into pneumonia and her condition became so serious that a telegram on

Tuesday afternoon announced there was no hope for her recovery. This

telegram was followed by the one mentioned above on Wednesday morning

announcing her death. Members of the family left by the mail train for Sydney on Wednesday

morning and would of course be still journeying to Brisbane at the time of their mother's death. An effort was made to travel to Sydney by plane, but no accommodation was available.

The late Mrs. Hinschen was a member of the Albietz family, well-known in Bowen, and has resided in Proserpine over a long number of years, and was well-known in the district.

The deceased lady's interment took place in Sydney on Wednesday afternoon.

Deceased leaves a husband and grown up family, and two sisters residing

in Proserpine (Mrs. W. Stoneham and Mrs. J. Stoneham) to mourn their sad loss.
