Ethel's funeral service was conducted 30th October 1979. Her death notice referred to her as
mother of: Vera Johnston, Geoff, Ron, Merle & Max dec. It is taken that Vera was born to her
first husband and the rest to Amos Walsh.|
It is impossible for Vera May to have been the natural child of Ethel as she would have had to be 10 years old when Vera was born. Perhaps she was adopted, or the child of some other member of the family.
