If you go to https://stk.smct.org.au/deceasedsearch/ there is an entry for Sophia Heatly, died 1887. She was ninety years old at death

If you go to https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/bdm/indexsearch.doj her death has been recorded under the surname Heally.

Click on her index entry and you can buy a death certificate from there, but the index does include plenty of information.
