Moad, Johanna (Josie) (?–1949)

One of Guildford's best-known residents, Mrs. Johanna Moad, passed away at her residence, 115 Military Road, Guildford on December 1. The deceased (who was perhaps better known as Josie O'Neill) was the daughter of Mrs. Bridget O'Neill, and the late Mr. Michael Joseph O'Neill, who controlled the Guildford Picture Theatre for many years. Mrs. Moad will be especially remembered by many of the patrons of the Guildford Theatre Shop, of which she was in charge for many years. She is survived by a husband, Mr. Arthur Moad, her mother and sisters Doris (Mrs. Enright, Fairfield), Gladys (Mrs. White, of Wellington. N.S.W.), and brothers Gerald and Michael, to whom deepest sympathy is extended on her sudden passing.
