Flora Frances Forrest (1886–1947)

The death occurred suddenly yesterday of Mrs. Kim Forrest, of Cubbine, Quairading. Mrs. Forrest was well known and affectionately regarded in the district, where she had lived for many years. Her husband, who died about 15 years ago, was one of the early pioneers of the district.

Mrs. Forrest, who was the daughter of the late Mr. George Forrest, of Picton where she was born, is survived by a brother, Mr. Ernest Forrest, of Picton, and two sisters, Mesdames F. Roberts and H. Rose, both of Bunbury. The funeral will take place today.
