Today's obituary is for Roma Marguerite O'Connor, who is my 1st cousin once removed. Roma was the daughter of my Grand Aunt Elizabeth Minnie O'Connor (known as Minnie) and an unnamed father. She died in February 1932 at Cobar District Hospital from Gastro Enteritis and was buried in the Roman Catholic Section of the Cobar Cemetery.
