Rhoda Florence (Florrie) Stuart (1872–1932)

from Westralian Worker

Her many friends in the Labor Movement of Australia will deeply regret to hear of the death of Mrs. Florence Stuart, wife of the late Mr. Julian Stuart, at one time editor of the "Westralian Worker," which took place recently.

Mrs. Stuart was a worker in the ranks of Labor for many years, and throughout smarted bitterly because of the exploitation of the working class everywhere, and expressed this bitterness, at times, with very strong emphasis. Our late comrade was of a warm-hearted and lovable nature, and was the possessor of a beautiful singing voice. Fate appears to have denied her the necessary training which might have placed her in the front rank of Australian vocalists. Mr. and Mrs. J. Stuart reared a family of eight children, most of whom proved brilliant scholars and are now making their way in the world.
