Hi Jean, Thanks for your help. It has inspired me to look further. I found The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954) Saturday 18 July 1942 HICKS - BONNING. - July 16, 1942, at her residence, 72 Walkin Street, Newtown, Mary Hicks - Bonning, dearly-loved mother of Charles, George, and Ivy Hicks, and Edith (Mrs. T. Dudley), and of William and Alfred Bonning, and fond sister of Dolly (Mrs. J. Dwyer), aged 67 years. At rest.
