Edith Crombie (?–1906)

Sympathy and sorrow will be experienced in a wide circle at the news of the death of Mrs. Edith Crombie, which took place at Southport on Tuesday evening, says the Brisbane Courier of the 18th instant. The deceased was the wife of Mr. David Crombie of Green Hills, Muttaburra, and the third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Milman. Her illness started some six or seven months ago as a result of a neglected cold, and for the last few weeks the invalid sought health with her mother at Southport. The deceased has left a little son, aged nearly two years.
