After three days of severe illness, Mrs. Bertha Baillieu died this morning at her home, Heathfield, Toorak (writes The Melbourne Herald, of Tuesday, July 28).
A woman of great charm and kindness of nature, Mrs. Baillieu will be mourned by a large circle of friends. She inherited from her father, the late Mr. Edward Latham, whose generous benefactions included the gift to the Church of England of the clergy's rest house at Queenscliff, a delight in unobtrusive charity, and many who have been in trouble have been helped by her. She was the centre of a devoted family, in whom she found the main joy of a long and happy life. Her husband, all her children, and eight grand children, survive her. Her daughters are Mrs. Robert Ramsay, who is at present abroad, and Misses Vere, Claire, and Amy Baillieu, and her sons, Messrs. C. L. and J. L. Baillieu, who are at present in London, and Messrs. H. L. and Tom Baillieu.
