Hodges, Lady Alice Belinda (1859–1942)

By the death of Lady Hodges, 83, at her home, Dreamthorpe, Mt Macedon, yesterday, charitable institutions, specially those concerned with welfare of children, have lost a very fine patroness. Many charities have benefited from inspections of the lovely gardens of Dreamthorpe, and it was one of the show gardens of Mt Macedon to be thrown open for charitable purposes. Lady Hodges was born in the Western district, and was twice married. Her first husband was the late Mr Robert Chirnside, and her second the late Sir Henry Hodges, of the Victorian Supreme Court Bench. Her family consisted of 2 daughters (Mrs Mary Gwladis Ronald and one deceased) and 3 sons, Messrs. Robert Gordon Chirnside and Russell Melville Chirnside, and the late Mr Andrew Neville Chirnside.

The funeral, which will be private, will take place on Wednesday, leaving Sleight's Chapel at 3 pm for Springvale Crematorium.
