Ethelinda (Linda) Stewart (1880–1918)

Mrs. J. C. [Ethelinda] Stewart, of the Bank of New South Wales, Deniliquin, and formerly of Moama, died on Saturday after an illness of only a few days, from pneumonia and was interred on Monday. Deceased, who was an enthusiastic worker for all patriotic efforts, participated in a fancy ball last week, promoted by the patriotic league, of which she was vice-president. A severe chill after dancing resulted in pneumonia, from which it was hoped she would recover, but the heart was unable to withstand the strain, and the end came quickly. The deceased lady was universally respected, and her death had an unusually marked effect on the Deniliquin townspeople, who heartily sympathise with the bereaved husband and his three children.
