Sinclair, Grace Bell (1897–1926)

Friends in three States will mourn the passing of Mrs. G. W. [Grace Bell] Sinclair, wife of Dr. Sinclair of Epping, Sydney, and younger daughter of Sir Littleton Groom, Speaker of the House of Representatives and Lady Groom. The late Mrs. Sinclair, who was born in Brisbane and spent her childhood here, was educated at the Presbyterian Ladies' College, Melbourne, in which city she lived for the greater part of her girlhood. She was married five or six years ago to Dr. Sinclair, and she leaves a young son. An extremely pretty woman with the somewhat unusual combination of dark eyes and fair hair, the late Mrs. Sinclair was under thirty. She was noted for her charming personality. She had been in-ill health for some time past, but made a gallant fight for recovery.
