This could be the death of Maurice TWOMEY in Victoria, though I suspect an error in the age given

TWOMEY Maurice
Father Maurice
Mother
Age 42
Year 1880
Reg Number 5391


News item about a man named Maurice TWOMEY died suddenly at Sale 1880

Perhaps his widow Sarah opened a boarding house in the area in 1885 to earn a living ;D

Just to add.

In the 1922 Commonwealth Electoral Roll Edward Twomey and Sarah Twomey were residing at  Kennedy St, Windsor in Brisbane.  From the same Electoral Roll we find Edith Mantle residing also in Kennedy Street, Windsor.  No other Mantle names on the Roll for Kennedy Street.
