    • OBITUARY
      Mrs. Mary Goodhart
      Mrs. Mary Goodhart, who died on Saturday, was born in Adelaide on Au- gust 20. 1841. Her parents. Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Turner, arrived by the Fernleigh with her uncle. Mr. Joseph Mellor and his four sisters. With her father, who was a brewer, she lived in many different places. One of her most vivid recollections was a journey to Mount Barker by bullock dray which took two days. Her father had bought land in the vicinity, and later was em-ployed at the Oakbank brewery by Mr. Gray. She then lived at Blakiston and attended the church and Sunday school there under Mr. and Mrs. Fulford, of whom she always retained the kindliest memories. She lived for some years in Port Adelaide with an aunt, Mrs. Malin (later Mrs. Lavin) and in Kapunda with a cousin, Mrs. Garsed. When still in her teens she married Mr. George William Goodhart. who was employed by the Bank of Australasia, and when he was appointed manager at Kooringa she accompanied him with her two small children, travelling by train to Kapunda and thence by Cobb & Co's coach. In 1876 Mr. Goodhart was trans-ferred to Port Lincoln, where he died; in 1887. Since then Mrs. Goodhart has lived at Semaphore, Woodville and  Park terrace, Gilberton. On one occasion Miss Lawson, matron of the Walkerville Boys' Home, appealed to her for help, the boys being sadly short of clothing. Mrs. Goodhart interviewed the late Mr. James Marshall, and obtained a concession on the price of a roll of cloth. She then set to work with scissors and machine, and did not rest until she had made a most needed garment for each of the 70 boys. Mrs. Good-hart led an active life until about 15 years ago, when she was stricken with an attack of acute neuritis, which lasted many months, and left her crippled. She passed her days in a wheeled chair in the the open air. and though sight and hearing failed, her intellect remained clear. She died after a short illness. She leaves a brother. Mr. John Turner, of Largs. a daughter. Miss Goodhart, and three sons. Messrs. W. W., Alec, and G. F. Goodhart.
