Padbury, Esther (?–1934)

At her residence, Rose Hill, Guildford, Mrs. Esther Padbury, wife of Mr. M. T. Padbury, passed away on Wednesday, at the age of 69 years. Mrs. Padbury had long been a resident of Western Australia, and was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Nairn, of Lynwood, South Australia. For many years she had lived with her husband in the Moora district, at the Koojan estate, and enjoyed the confidence and esteem of a large circle of friends and acquaintances. When Mr. Padbury became president of the Primary Producers' Association, Mrs. Padbury associated herself with the women's section of that movement and, coming to Guildford to live, was able to devote a considerable amount of time to this and other social and charitable movements. She was of a kindly, sympathetic nature, and her demise will be mourned by a large circle of friends who were privileged to know her.

The funeral took place on Friday, after a service at St. Matthew's Church, Guildford, the remains being interred at the Karrakatta cemetery. There was a large and representative attendance of country and city citizens.
