Miss Gertrude Mack, whose death occurred at a private hospital in Darlinghurst on Wednesday, was a sister of Miss Amy Eleanor Mack (Mrs. L.

Miss Mack, who returned to Australia three weeks ago from London, on a visit to her brother, Mr. C. A. Mack, of Mosman, was the youngest of the five daughters of the late Rev. Hans Mack. She was born at Morpeth, New South Wales, and as a child lived at Windsor and Balmain and later at Redfern. She was educated at Sydney Girls' High School.
