Well-known to many residents of Penrith, Mrs. Gladys Rose Hollier, wife of Mr. Sydney James Hollier, of Strathfleld, passed away at King George V. Hospital, Camperdown, on May 29, at the age of 55 years.

Deceased, who was the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Benaud, of Penrith, was born at Parkes. She had been suffering with an ailment for some four years, and was a patient in the hospital for five weeks prior to her death.

After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Hollier resided at Penrith, Punchbowl, Bathurst, Cootamundra, Shortland, and, for the last four months, at Strathfleld.

In her young days at Coraki, deceased took an active part in musical entertainments, and was a member of the dramatic society. She was also interested in church and Sunday School work for many years.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Hollier is survived by one son, Louis, of Strathfield, and two brothers, Louis, of North Parramatta, and John, of Gunnedah.
