from Advertiser (Adelaide)
Mrs. Catherine Eliza Stow, of Kent street, Glenelg, who died at her home on Wednesday, was one of the founders of the Victoria League in South Australia, and was associated with its committee for 30 years. She acted as chairman of the executive committee for many years, and retired from the position in 1939 because of ill-health.
Mrs. Stow was made an honorary vice-president of the league in South Australia. She always had a particular interest in the welfare of young people and the Victoria League was the first to form, with her encouragement, a Young Contingent.
A tribute to her work was paid by the secretary of the league Miss Kathleen Kyffin Thomas yesterday. Miss Thomas said that the league owed much to Mrs. Stow's powers of organisation, her wise judgment, and her generous support of the movement during the long period of her association with the league.
