Georgina Sophia Brodie (1857–1906)

We regret deeply to hear of the death of Mrs. W. A. [Georgina Sophia] Brodie, who died suddenly at her residence, North Sydney. Mrs. Brodie was a sister of Mr. W. A. Winchcombe. The deceased lady was of a very gentle nature, and she devoted her whole life to her family, who always clung to her as the ivy to the oak. Some 25 years ago she was a member of the well-known Parramatta Dramatic Association. Really she was the first lady member to join and she was one of the most capable members of that very capable society. The first character she appeared in was that of 'Martha Gabb,' in 'All that glitters is not gold,' and in that character she stood out as a most prominent figure. Her lovable nature made her a general favorite with every member of the old society. She was a comparatively young woman at the time of her death.
