Amy Marguerite (Daisy) Osborne (1873–1946)

By the death of Mrs Harry Osborne, which occurred at a private hospital in Melbourne on Monday, another link with the Edwardian era which was brilliant in Australia, as elsewhere, is broken.

Mrs. Osborne was the eldest daughter of the late Sir John and Lady Madden, and during the time her father was lieutenant-governor and Chief Justice of Victoria she was one of the leaders of a bevy of young society women which included many women who since have made names for themselves in the worlds of art, fashion, and society life in two hemispheres.

She was named Amy Marguerite Frances, but was universally known as "Daisy" Madden, and married Mr. Harry Osborne, of Currandooly, New South Wales. She had been ill for a long time and was not able for many years to join in social affairs. Her husband died some time ago. Her family includes Messrs P. J. B. and Dennis Osborne, of New South Wales, and Mrs Harry Gundry, of Honiton, Devon, England.

After a service at Sleight's chapel today at 1.45 pm the funeral will leave for Springvale Crematorium.
