Jane Miriam Chambers (1865–1918)

It will be learned with great regret by her many friends in the Labor movement of the death, on April 29, of Mrs. E. C. [Jane Miriam] Chambers, the widow of the late Mr. 'Ted' Chambers, who was for so many years the secretary of the Clerks' Union. For a long time Mrs. Chambers was a prominent worker with the Coburg branch, of the P.L.C. During recent years Mrs. Chambers resided at Riversdale-road, Box Hill. Her death occurred in the Melbourne Hospital, after an illness of short duration. Her remains were interred on May 1 at the Box Hill Cemetery, at which representatives of the Clerical Association and the Storemen and Packers' Union were present. There are five children left, one of whom is the wife of Mr. P. J. Clarey, the secretary of the Storemen and Packers' Union, and another is employed in the office of the Australian Clerical Association. This paper extends to the children and relatives its warm-hearted sympathy with them in their bereavement.
