Community & Family

On Saturday 5th June, 1886, Kate Mary Smith submitted an ‘Undertakers’ Notice’ in The Brisbane Courier informing “The inhabitants of Brisbane and surrounding districts that the long-established business so successfully carried on by the late Jno.Smith, as undertaker, will in future be carried on by his widow”. This was K.M. Smiths’ first sharing of ‘News & Events’ with the community and the families we respectfully continue to share our news and event items with today.

For many families Father's Day is held in memory of their dad, instead of with him. It is no less special a day, but it is different for those who are mourning or grieving the loss of their father, husband or son.
Kate Mary's husband John died in 1886 aged 42. Their 6 children were aged from 6 to 14 years and whilst we don't know what Kate said or did to comfort them, we've heard that there is an Irish saying she may have used: 'Love leaves a memory no one can steal".
