Marion (Mysie) Stephen (?–1938)

Ex-Pupil writes:-"Miss Mysie Stephen, whose death occurred at Ashfield on November 11 - Armistice Day - was the second daughter of the late Ernest F. and Mary M. Stephen, and a granddaughter of the late Sir Alfred Stephen, a former Chief Justice of New South Wales. Miss Stephen possessed rare musical talent, and was a gifted teacher. She was a highly cultured, though somewhat modest and retiring personality, remarkably conscientious and unselfish. She was greatly beloved by her many intimate friends and pupils, to whom she herself was most devoted, and to some a cherished friend. Several of her pupils are exceptional pianists. Miss Stephen was a member of the Women's Club, and will be missed in musical circles.

The funeral service at St. John's Church, Ashfield, on Saturday morning (before cremation at Rookwood) was largely attended, including girls from Normanhurst and Ascham. The Rev. H. S. Cocks officiated.
