Death - Nita Maud CHAPMAN

The death occurred in the 3rd Australian Women's Hospital, Sydney, on Thursday last of Miss Nita Maud Chapman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Chapman, of “Trefusis,” Mudgee. Deceased had been ill foe a considerable time with chronic nephritis, and had been receiving treatment in Sydney. She joined the A.W.A.S. about two years ago and, after about 12 months' service, was unable to continue in the services and had to resign because of illness. She was a native of Mudgee and well known and well liked in this district.
The remains were brought to Mudgee and the funeral took place to the Church of England portion of the general cemetery, the Rev. A. G. Powell officiating. Amongst the many beautiful wreaths was one from “her pals at the Evahorden Convalescent Home, Strathfield,” and another from the staff and patients of the 3rd Australian Women's Hospital.
Besides her sorrowing parents the following brothers and sisters are left to mourn: Constance (Sydney), Alma (Mrs. S. Box, Mudgee), Daisy (Sydney), Ivy, Thelma and Margaret (Mudgee); Henry, Horace, Percy, Wallace, Kevin, Clifford and Ronald (all of Mudgee).
To the bereaved we extend our sincere sympathy in the loss of a very lovable member of the family. – Mudgee Guardian, issue dated Monday June 5, 1944.
