Edith Emily Reddall (1862–1930)

from Daily Pictorial

Mrs. Edith Reddall, who died at her home in Agar Street, Marrickville, on Thursday night, was a woman of considerable talent.

Many of her verses had been published in Sydney papers, and others had been highly commended by editors of overseas publications.

Mrs. Reddall was related to some of the best Sydney families, and, possessing a private income, was in a position to live quietly and comfortably.

Two of her sons served in the Great War, and she was always a strong upholder of the British Empire and of British ideals.
