Tan Suat Neo (Mrs. Ong Hood Hin), death 3 April 1909, Singapore

We regret to announce the sudden and unexpected death of Mrs Ong Hood Hin, the eldest daughter of Mr Tan Jiak Kim, which took place at her father's residence, Pang Lima Prang, River Valley Road, at 8.30 a.m. yesterday. The deceased lady, who was 26 years of age, was married about four years ago, and had only been ill with malaria fever for two days. She was a good English and Chinese scholar, and was much respected by the Chinese ladies for her amiable and virtuous qualities. She leaves a widower and a son to mourn her loss, and much sympathy will be felt for the family and relations of Mr Tan Jiak Kim. The funeral procession will be announced shortly, and will start from her father-in-law's (Mr Ong Tiang Soon) residence at River Valley Road.
