After being a patient in Tumut and District Hospital for the past   six weeks, Mrs. Myra Beatrice Harris, wife of Colonel Geoff Harris, of 'Dardanella,' Tumut, passed away at 9.10 p.m. on Sunday. 

Born in Tumut 68 years ago, the late Mrs. Harris was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs N. Emmanuel, her father being well-known local solicitor.

On reaching woman's estate she married Mr. Geoff Harris, then conducting a farming property at 'Wermatong' Tumut.

With the exception of a short period of residence at Goulburn where Col. Harris was in command of an Army regiment after the 1st war, the late Mrs. Harris resided in Tumut and district all her life. 

She took a keen interest in Tumut C.W.A. and Red Cross Society activities, being treasurer of the former organisation for a number of   years.

In early life she showed considerable talent in painting. 

Besides the sorrowing husband, one son Frederick, of Lacmalac, is left to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and mother.

Two brothers, Percy (Brisbane) and Fred Emmanuel (Sydney) and one sister Doris (Mrs. George Cohen, Rose Bay) also survive.

One brother Norman and one sister Truda predeceased her.
