Dorothy M. Dangar (?–1919)

The death occurred from influenza at a private hospital in Melbourne on Wednesday night of Miss Dorothy M. Dangar, youngest daughter of the late Mr. Henry C. Dangar, M.L.C., and Mrs. Dangar, of Sydney. Miss Dangar left Sydney a few weeks ago to visit her friend, Mrs. H. Pape, formerly Miss Audrey Chirnside, on her return from London, and had been the guest of Mr. and Mrs. George Chirnside at Werribee Park, Werribee. Like her father, Miss Dangar was a keen racing enthusiast. Miss Dangar is survived by four brothers and four sisters—Mr. R. H. Dangar, of Neotsfield; Mr. Neville Dangar, of Sydney; Brigadier-General Dangar, of Melbourne; Mr. Leonard Dangar, of Yallaroi, near Warialda; Mrs. Henry Osborne, of Sydney; Mrs Lewin, of England (wife of Captain Lewin, of the Royal Navy); Mrs. Clive Dangar, and Miss Muriel Dangar. The funeral took place at the Brighton Cemetery, Melbourne, yesterday afternoon.
