Residence
Husband is not noted on this page of the electoral roll. Does not appear in other rolls. Daughters do not appear but would be underage.
Burial
At Cairns Family History - check against their card catalogue doesn't show this inscription. This suggests the plaque was installed after 1983-4. Cairns council's "new" system is about 18 months old. Previous data location unknown. (May need to FUP Brisbane archives) Council records (microfiche at Cairns Family History) show she was an Old Age Pensioner and that the plot cost £5. Discussion with Aileen suggests that the info on the death certificate would be the sort of details that would have been supplied to the hospital on admission.
