Former general practitioner Carmarthen Carmarthenshire 1903; Westminster 1930),9 June 1997. The second daughter and fourth child of a farming family she studied medicine at a time when few women from any social background did. Both her parents died when she was a student, but she was able to continue her studies with help from relatives and her husband to be. After a short time in general practice in the east end of London, when Mahatma Ghandi was one of her patients, she returned with her husband to Carmarthen, where she was in practice and later an assistant medical officer of health. She was active in the local medical society and was a keen Soroptimist. Predeceased by her husband, she leaves a son (me, a consultant gynaecologist) and two grandchildren.
