Miss Emmie Alexandria Kemmis, a well known church worker, and youngest daughter of the late Canon Kemmis, who was incumbent of St. Mark's, Darling Point, from 1862 to 1897, died at her home in Lindfield yesterday morning after a short illness. Miss Kemmis took great interest in the Bush Brotherhood. During the war she was an indefatigable worker on behalf of the V.A.D. After the death of Canon Kemmis, Miss Kemmis and her mother, who died two years ago, went to reside at Mosman, but subsequently went to live at Lindfield, of which Miss Kemmis had been a resident for 10 years. Four brothers and four sisters survive. The funeral takes place to-day to South Head Cemetery.
