King, Sarah Gwendolyn (1878–1935)

from Portland Guardian (Vic)

The death of Miss Sarah Gwendolyn King occurred on Friday last, after a residence in Portland of almost 14 years, she having come to this town from Perth, W.A. She was a daughter of the late Hon. Thomas King, of Adelaide, a former Minister of Education, and part proprietor of the Adelaide Advertiser. Though handicapped by deafness all her life, her outlook was courageous and optimistic, and though not possessing a great deal of this world's goods, she always gave generously of what she had to those who were in any way physically handicapped or were in indifferent circumstances. She had travelled widely, and on two occasions was resident in England. The deceased lady endeared herself very much to her neighbors and to those who came into contact with her. She was a sister of the late Lady Stuckley, of London, Mrs. Herbert Syme (of the Age), and a cousin of Sir George and Lady Cuscaden.
