      OBITUARY
      Mrs. Dulcie Marion Russell
      Former Hay resident, Mrs. Dulcie Marion Russell, of Reservoir, Melbourne, passed away on 7th July.
      Mrs. Russell had suffered a long illness before her passing in the Austin Hospital, at the age of 57 years.
      The daughter of Mrs. Mollie Richards, of Hay, and the late Mr. R. A. Richards, Mrs. Russell was born in Sydney and came to Hay with her parents, as a child.
      She went to school in Maude and Hay and later worked in clerical positions at Becker's newsagency and at Smith Simpsons.
      She met and married the late Arthur Russell, who had come to Hay to serve in the P.O.W. camp. They made their home in Revesby, Sydney.
      Mrs. Russell later returned to Hay where she took a number of positions on station properties working in domestic areas. She particularly spent long periods at Tupra and Oolambeyan.
      Upon retiring from Tupra, Mrs. Russell made her home in Melbourne, but continued to be a regular visitor to Hay. She kept in very close contact with her mother, phoning her each day and writing regularly, always enclosing a couple of tea bags, a small sentimental present for one whom she knew had a love of tea.
      Mrs. Russell also endeared herself to her neighbours and was constantly assisting them with small chores, including their shopping.
      She is survived by her mother and her six children.
      The family is Marion (Newcastle), Arthur (Perth), Wayne (Wollongong), Geoffrey ("Jack", Victoria), Leonie (Sydney) and Jennifer (Port Macquarie).
      There are ten grandchildren.
      She is also survived by sisters Ollie (Darlington Point) and Patricia (Mrs. Ovens, Hay) and a brother John (Ballarat) and step-sisters, Maude (Mrs. Nelson, Queensland), Joyce (Mrs. Schebeci, Sydney) and Dot (Sydney).
      The funeral was held from St. Paul's Anglican Church in Hay on 11th July, for internment in the Hay Cemetery.
