Obituary: FROGGO, Elsie Hunter

The death occurred at the Grafton Base Hospital on April 12, of Mrs. Elsie Hunter Short of 51 North Street, Grafton (formerly of Lower Southgate) at the age of 63 years.

Deceased was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hunter Foggo, of Brushgrove. Being bereft of her mother when in her infancy she was cared for by a step-sister in Grafton and then in Sydney, later returning to reside with her only sister, the late Mrs. Norman McDonald, of Grafton. Some time later she went to Brushgrove, the place of her birth to care for her aged father. From there she met and married Samuel Henry Short, of Lower Southgate, in the year 1910.

The late Mrs. Short was a staunch member of the Presbyterian Church at Cowper, where in her early life she was organist and teacher of the Sunday School for many years, and member of the Women's Guild.

The service was held in St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Grafton, where a large concourse of relatives and friends paid their last tributes. The service was conducted by Rev. Robson, of Grafton, assisted by the Rev. McDiarmid, of the Mid-Clarence Charge. Special reference was made of her church work and work with other organisations, especially with the local branch of the Red Cross, of which she was president for many years.

An ardent flower lover all her life, many were the beautiful floral tributes paid to her memory.

She is survived by her husband, two daughters, Vera (Mrs. Keith McQueen, of Lawrence) and Alison (Mrs. Harold Weir, of Lucinda Point, Ingham, Queensland), and three sons, Douglas, Ian and Alan, Lower Southgate. Six small grandchildren also survive. One son, Ronald, the eldest of the family, predeceased his mother 16 years ago.
