Amy Cohen (1872–1954)

Death occurred in Maitland Hospital of Mrs. Amy Cohen, M.B.E., of Roxburgh Street, Lorn, after a long illness, widow of Mr. Percy B. Cohen, former well-known Maitland dentist, who died some weeks ago at Tamworth whilst on a visit to his brother and sisters. Mrs. Cohen was twice married, her first husband was Mr. Geo. Atkin, who was police magistrate at Maitland, Dungog, and other parts of the State.

The late Mrs. Cohen was noted for her work for charity. She rendered outstanding service to the Red Cross and was made an M.B.E. more than 19 years ago in recognition of her great work.

During her residence in Dungog, she was a prominent worker for her church and all charitable organisations. She is survived by her son, Mr. Philip Atkin, of Dungog, and a daughter, Mrs. Edith Clark. Mrs. A. W. Donnelly, of Tenterfield, is a sister. To them deepest sympathy is extended.
