Jim and Elsie’s 1978 Tour – Day 19

Wednesday, 19 April 1978

One of only four days throughout the entire trip where there was no entry.  However, I thought it would be nice to reproduce some very brief words put together by Elsie on their lives.

1952 – Jim and I were married. We moved to Hurstville, where we worked for the next couple of years restoring the house Jim had purchased sometime during the war. It was a lot of work, but all good fun. We were not blessed with children.

1960 – I became involved with the Scouting movement and for the next 20 years I was a leader with 1st Kingsway Scout Group. Jim was a school teacher so we both enjoyed other folk’s children.

1983 – Jim retired from teaching and we enjoyed caravaning and several lovely trips about this beautiful country.

1989 – Jim passed away. I was able to carry on with the help of so many wonderful friends
– especially friends from Scouting days, Church and family. I joined a ‘Probus Group’ , became involved with supporting ‘Stewart House’ and also Legacy. I enjoyed golf, bowls and gardening.

I give thanks for a full and happy life.
