in The Southern Cross, Friday 29th July 1921
One of South Australia's old and highly esteemed colonists passwed away at Kooringa on the 15th July 1921 in the person of Mrs Mary Beerworth, at the age of 77 years.
Her parents, Mr and Mrs John McInerney, arrived in South Australia with Capt Bagot from County Clare, Ireland in 1840, and settled at Brighton where Mrs Beerworth was born on 20th October 1844.
A few years afterwards she removed with her parents to Peach Belt and received her education at Gawler.
In 1854 she removed to Tarlee and in 1861 she married Mr Timothy McInerney of Manoora and resided there for some years.
In 1870 her husband died and in 1873 she married Mr William Beerworth of Manoora.
In 1878 her husband took up land in the Hundreds of Boocunda, about twenty miles north of Carrieton where she lived for twenty-six years.
In those days doctors were few and far between in the North and no distance was too far or roads too rough for Mrs Beerworth to visit the sick and afflicted and assist in nursing them back to health.
In fact she lived her life amongst the poor and the sick.
In 1905 she removed to Pamatta and continued her good work among the aged and the sick.
In 1913 after her husband's death she went to live at Kooringa where she resided up to the time of her death.
Her remains were taken to Carrieton and interred in the local cemetry on Saturday 16th July.
One brother - Mr John McInerney, Yongala.
Her sons - JM McInerney, Kooringa - J Beerworth, Broken Hill - W Beerworth, Victor Harbour - JM Beerworth, Port Augusta - FH Beerworth, Adelaide.
Her daughters - Mrs P Price, Perth - Mrs M Francis, Gordon - Mrs T Reid, Boocunda East - Mrs M O'Neill, Broken Hill - Mrs J Meers, Mt Bryan.
And fifty-one grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren.
