Birth 3821/1911 JOHNSTON ELLENOR M - WILLIAM J - ELLENOR - GLEBE

I'm not sure that middle initial M is correct. It might be A = Alice.
Father is William John and mother is Ellenor Jane.

Called Helen at the funeral of her father in 1940 and still living in 1963:

The Sydney Morning Herald - Saturday 20 July 1963 p.72
DEATHS
JOHNSTON, David Leslie.-July 18, 1963, of 52 Glebe Street, Glebe, dearly loved husband of Vera, loved father of Veronica, David and Leslie and fond brother of Eleanor and William, aged 56 years.

William died in 1992 and no mention of sister Ellenor in his death notice.

Looking for death and any other info on Ellenor/Eleanor.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks gibbo.

That is the only possible marriage I could find. I get the impression 'Helen' as she was called in 1940 was unmarried. The notice didn't say Mrs. ...

Nothing in the 2011 death notice that helps me decide. I have nothing to prove the middle initial is not correct as M and that Eleanor Alice is therefore a different one.

Age is right so we need another birth to rule that one out. But the problem is with the marriage in 1954 it could well be a 2nd marriage for Eleanor Alice. We may never know her maiden name unless a tree can be found.
