Deborah Louise Vickery (1853–1924)

from Sydney Morning Herald

The death occurred on Friday at her residence, Beracah, Darling Point-road, Darling Point, of Mrs. Deborah Louisa Vickery, widow of the late Mr. E. Vickery, who was a member of the Legislative Council. Mrs. Vickery was an enthusiastic worker of the Church of England, and took a keen and practical interest in the boys' and girls' homes of the Church at Carlingford and Glebe Point. About two years ago she presented her beautiful home, Edina, at Waverley for conversion into a war memorial hospital. Mr. Vickery gave the Lyceum Theatre to the Methodist Church. The funeral will leave St. Mark's Church, Darling Point, this morning, after the service, which commences at 11 o'clock, for the South Head Cemetery.
