Notes

Shared Note

Went to primary school at Robe Yr 7 1912 - 1918 ,and then Presbyterian Girls College in Adelaide yr 9, 1919 - 1920.
Worked for her Father on his properties at Robe.
Learnt to play the piano while in Adelaide and was an excellent player. Married Bruce George Robson in 1933 and they lived at Comung. Bruce went to Mckay in Queensland and worked on a sugar plantation to make some money until he got a tropical disease and came back to Robe and they lived at Mount Lookout ‎(Tin Mansions)‎, one of her fathers properties.
They had six children Peter Bruce, Mary Stuart, Andrew Jeffrey George, Angus Alexander, Stephen Colin Stanley and Elizabeth Anne. ‎(Peter had a stillborn twin sister)‎. When Bruce joined the Lighthorse they were living at Mount Lookout and he met a car at the main road to go to Mount Gambier and Took drove the T Model Ford home. When she got to the house she could not remember how to stop it, went around the house three times before running over and stalling the car on top of a wurley she had built for the children.
Bruce had two cray boats financed by her father and fished at Robe. They then bought a house at Beachport and fished with two boats there. They then sold up and moved to a dairy farm at Albany in Western Australia in 1948 financed by her father. Sold the dairy farm, paid back the loan and Bruce managed two properties, Noondi near Yalgoo and Hillview near Meekatharra - 500,000 acres and 15,000 sheep. Bruce then moved to Bullara Station in the Exmouth Gulf and Took left Bruce and went back to her parents in Robe in 1953, divorced and then lived in Adelaide until her death of Pneumonia in 1971.
