O'ROURKE, Sergt. John & PENNEY Pte. Matthew
Daily News    December 6, 1918 (Friday)
IN MEMORIAM.
Sergt. John O'Rourke
and Pte. Matthew Penney, of Holyrood. Those two young Holyroodians made the Supreme Sacrifice in the very last stage of the Great World War, and now sleep peacefully "Somewhere in France" on the banks of the Aisne.
Sergt. John O'Rourke, a son of Mr. James O'Rourke now residing in Sydney and the late Mrs. Bridget O'Rourke, was one of those brave and spirited fellows who donned the khaki in the early stages of the war and after going through the usual period of training were sent overseas to do his bit in defence of the Empire. In several encounters he was fortunate in coming through unscathed, but in one he was severely wounded and was confined to hospital for six months. For his heroism in this battle he was ranked to Sergeant and awarded the Military Medal. He fought his last battle and sealed his devotion and patriotism with the sacrifice of his life, when he was killed in action on October 8th, 1918. A brave and plucky soldier, he won early a hero's crown, being only in his 23rd year.
Private Matthew Penney, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Mark Penney, North Arm, resigned a lucrative position in Sydney and volunteered his services in the C.E.F. two years ago. His gallant work and conspicuous bravery earned for him the esteem and praise of his Commanding Officer and the Military Medal from the Home Authorities. He was killed in action on November 9th, 1918. In announcing the death of these two young heroes, Rev. W.P. Finn, P.P., extolled their bravery and patriotism, and extended the sympathy of himself and congregation to the sorrow stricken parents of the two boys to whom we were greatly indebted, for they died that we may live. Yes, indeed, Holyrood sorrows and sympathizes with the parents of those brave boys, whose glory shall never fade, and who rode on glory's car to mingle with the blest we trust. Requiescant in Pace. Amen.

O'ROURKE, Maria

In Memoriam. Holyrood mourns the loss of one of its most estimable old ladies in the person of Mrs. Maria O'Rourke. The deceased lady was born at Hr. Main 68 years ago, and was the daughter of the late Capt. John and Martha Kennedy. During her six week's illness, she was attended by Dr. Jones, who called to her aid all that practical experience and skillful treatment could suggest, but despite all she succumbed to the attacks of a chronic malady. Rev. Fr. Finn was in constant attendance on the sick woman and administered to her spiritual strength and comfort. Her funeral took place on last Monday from her late residence to the Church of Holy Cross where the funeral obsequies were performed by Rev. Fr. Finn, and thence to the Southside Cemetery where interment took place in the family plot. On Monday morning Solemn High Mass and office was sung for the repose of her soul. The celebrant was Rev. W.P. Finn, P.P.; Deacon, Rev. T. O'Neill, P.P., Conception; Sub-Deacon, Rev. R.M. Shean, P.P. Conception. The late lamented Mrs. O'Rourke was the mother of ten children - two sons and eight daughters, but five of her children predeceased her. Three are living in Springfield, Mass., one in Salmonier and one at home. Once Newfoundland's smartest scholar, the late gifted and gentle Gertrude, was her daughter, and Avondale's merchant prince, the late Edward Kennedy, her brother. Of a retiring but frank disposition, charitable and hospitable, Mrs. O'Rourke possessed the qualities of a good woman and a good Catholic, and her large funeral which was attended by numbers of her relatives from Hr. Main, Avondale and Holyrood attests to the respect in which she was held. To her bereaved husband and daughters, we offer our sincere sympathy, and our prayers for the repose of the soul of the late Maria O'Rourke. - Com.
