Dusting, Edwin Stanley (1891–1963)

More than 200 people attended a memorial service at the Methodist Memorial Church, Canberra yesterday for the late Edwin Slanley Dusting, of Forrest, who died suddenly in Perth on September 18.

Mr. Dusting died while on holidays with his daughter, Mrs. Beth Doust, of Perth.

The cremation service was conducted in Perth last Friday by the Rev. Harold Cox, former minister at the Reid Methodist Church.

Mr. Dusting, who came to Canberra from Melbourne in 1937, was well known for his active interest in a wide variety of church, musical, horticultural and other organisations. He was secretary of the A.C.T. division of the Red Cross Society.

Mr. Dusting leaves a son, Mr. Ronald Dusting, of Epping, N.S.W., and two daughters, Mrs. Doust, of Attadale, W.A., and Miss Ellestan Dusting, of Forrest.
