Berry, Cecil (?–1928)

from Brisbane Courier

General regret was expressed in Southport this afternoon when it became known that Mrs. Cecil Berry, wife of Dr. R. S. Berry, one of Southport's oldest and most esteemed medical practitioners, had passed away about 2.30 p.m. to-day at her residence, Scarborough-street, Southport. The deceased lady had been ill for only a short time, and her death will come as a great shock to her relatives and a wide circle of friends, who will miss her as an admirable hostess and a sincere friend. To Dr. Berry the sympathy of his many friends will be extended on the loss of one who was a great helpmate to him in his domestic and social life. The late Mrs. Berry was the second daughter of the late Mr. Hugh M. Milman (formerly Government Resident at Thursday Island, and at one time Commissioner of Stamps) and Mrs. Milman, of Southport. She was married to Dr. Berry about 28 years ago at Southport, and had lived at that place ever since, with the exception of five years when Dr. Berry was on active service on almost every front during the Great War, during which time Mrs. Berry resided in England. The surviving relatives, in addition to the bereaved husband, are her mother (Mrs. Milman) and sister (Miss Milman). The funeral will take place to-morrow (Thursday) morning from Dr. Berry's residence, at 11.30 o'clock.
