Mrs Constance Annie Caddy, relict of Mr. James Caddy and a resident of Northam for 52 years, died at the Northam Hospital on Sunday night after about two weeks’ illness. The deceased lady was born in Derbyshire, England, and attained her eightieth birthday whilst in hospital. Up to the time of her illness she had enjoyed excellent health. With her husband, Mrs Caddy came to this state in 1885 and after four years residence in Perth, the family moved to Northam, where Mr Caddy worked at his trade as an iron moulder. For over half a century Mrs Caddy had resided in the town and by her happy disposition had made a large circle of friends. After the death of her husband some years ago she took up residence with her daughter (Mrs. R. Foley). Of a family of twelve children (eight sons and four daughters) seven sons and two daughters survive her.
The funeral, which was of a private nature, took place on Monday morning last, the interment being in the Anglican portion of the Northam cemetery, the Rev. J Eakins Stannage officiating at the graveside. The chief mourners were Messrs. Thomas, William, Norman, David and Reginald Caddy (sons), Mesdames Norman, David and E.C.
