Obituary. At her home, "Giramonte" Hackthorne road, Cashmere, there passed away on Sunday last one who was very well known to the older residents of Christchurch — Miss Katharine Wilson the third-daughter of the late Archdeacon James Wilson, who, with her family, arrived in Christchurch in the ship Isabella Hercus, in 1851, says the "Press." The family lived first at Opawa, and later moved to Upper Riccarton. Miss Wilson was educated at Mrs. Charles Thompson's school, and in the late seventies went to England and trained as a nurse at St. Thomas's Hospital, London, and the Edinburgh Infirmary. Returning to Christchurch a few years later; Miss Wilson lived with her friend Miss Lohse, who, at that time, conducted a very successful private school for girls, until 1890, when both went abroad. In 1893 Miss Wilson returned to New Zealand, and remained here till 1901, when she went back to Italy to rejoin Miss Lohse, and lived with her in Florence until that lady died in 1912, when she once more came back to Christchurch, and made her home at Cashmere. Miss Wilson was keenly interested in the care of orphan children, and in the early days of the Government boarding-out scheme, she was the local secretary, and did a great deal of valuable work in that connection. She was an interesting, cultured, and charming woman, and though she had lived in retirement for a number of years, she will be sadly missed by many who were privileged to enjoy her friendship.
