    • SUDDEN DEATH ON STEAMER

      Mrs. Sarah Purcell
      SYDNEY, Monday. 

      "I am good-oh," replied Mrs. Sarah Purcell (62), widow, of Laidley, Queensland, as she lay in her bunk in the inter-State steamer Canberra early this morning. Soon afterwards she was found dead. Travelling with Mrs. Purcell was her sister-in-law, Mrs. Hedwig Wise. They occupied a two-berth cabin, and retired about midnight. Mrs. Purcell complained of feeling ill, and swallowed a mild sedative. About an hour later Mrs. Wise heard her relative in the berth below breathing heavily. "Are you all right?" she asked, and received the reply: "Yes, thanks; I am good-oh." Shortly after Mrs. Purcell began to gasp, and Mrs. Wise was unable to revive her. She rushed from the cabin and returned with an officer. Mrs. Purcell died a few minutes later, ap-     parently from heart failure. Mrs. Sarah Purcell was the widow of Mr. James Purcell, formerly of Brisbane, and was 64 years of age. She had been staying with her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Purcell (Laidley), for the last three years. She left by the Canberra on Saturday for Sydney, accompanied by her sister-in-law, Mrs. Wise, intending to spend a holiday in Sydney. She is survived by her son (Mr. Andrew Purcell).
