With only five weeks to the attainment of 100 years of age, Mrs. Mary Ann Catt died on Tuesday at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. H. Judd, Bath Street, Eltham. She was born in Sussex, England, on November 10th, 1830, and came to New Zealand seventy-five years ago and settled at the Hutt. For fifty-six years she was a resident of the Wairarapa, residing in several parts. Her husband, the late Mr. William Catt, died thirty years ago. Mrs. Catt went to Eltham from Masteton in 1928. Until three years ago, when she showed signs of decline, she retained all her faculties, and well remembered many incidents of the early days of New Zealand. During the Great War, Mrs. Catt was an indefatigable worker in the interests of the soldiers, making clothing for the Belgian children and also the men in the trenches. One effort of which she was justly proud was the making of thirty-six hand-worked quilts for Belgian sufferers. During her residence in Eltham she was a well-known figure in her invalid's chair, and she took more than a passing interest in current affairs. Deceased had a family of eight, of whom four are survivors, namely, Mr. Henry Catt (Carterton), Mr. William Catt (Timaru), Mrs. H. Judd (Eltham), Mrs. Sparrow (Gisborne). Her numerous descendants include members of five generations.
