Cora Phyllis Tardent (1896–1942)

Word was received in Maryborough yesterday of the death in Brisbane, following an operation, of Mrs. Cora Phyllis Tardent. Mrs. Tardent was the wife of Mr. Jules Tardent, forest factor in Maryborough for a number of years prior to his departure, a short time ago for Brisbane to become officer in charge of the Forestry Dept's showroom. At present Mr. Tardent, a returned soldier of the Great War, is attached to the Australian militia forces with the rank of captain. Mrs. Tardent was a member of St. Paul's Church of England Ladies' Guild, an active member of the Red Cross Society and on several occasions assisted at Diggers' fetes. The sincere sympathy of the community is extended to Mr. Tardent and his family of one son, Peter, and two daughters, Joan and Zoe, in their bereavement.
