MacPhillamy, Alice Kate (1861–1938)

from Sun (Sydney)

Mrs. Alice Kate Macphillamy, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Clive Single, in Woollahra yesterday, will be remembered as a beautiful woman with a beautiful nature.

Mrs. Macphillamy's whole life was of living, loving kindness. The widow of the late C. S. Macphillamy, of Warroo, Forbes, Mrs. Macphillamy made of her station home a place of hospitality, and a place where all in need might come for aid. Her friends will remember her for her unfailing sense of kindly humor, and her love of her garden. Forty years of recollection fail to bring to mind an occasion when Mrs. Macphillamy was not surrounded with flowers.

Six children survive Mrs. Macphillamy — Mrs. Clive Single, who, as Rania Macphillamy, was associated with Dame Alice Chisholm, in conducting the famous Kantara Canteen for the Light Horse during the war: Mrs. Charles Edols and Messrs. M. C., Neil, Angus, and George Macphillamy.
