Ada worked for a number of years at Jabalee’s Quality Store in North Sydney, as a member of the kitchen staff of Northside General Hospital and finally with General Instruments in Sydney until her retirement. Ada loved to dance, listen to music and to speak with people wherever she went. She loved making people laugh and smile. She was a faithful member of St. Joseph Church, North Sydney.

The family would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Patrick O’Grady and the staff of Joseph Hall of the Northside Guest Home for the wonderful care given to Ada.
In accordance with Ada’s wishes, a private family service will take place at a later date and burial in Holy Cross Cemetery, North Sydney.
