Wilmet Annie (Bob) Bennett
Daughter of the late Joseph Bennett, of Otahuao, Masterton, Wellington.
“Very much regret was expressed in Masterton at the news, received by cablegram, of the death at Walton-on-Thames on November 21 of Miss Wilmet (Bob) Bennett, who had been doing war work at the hospital for nearly two years, up to the time of her death, which followed upon an operation for appendicitis. Miss Bennett was the fourth daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Bennett, of Otahuao, Masterton, and sister to Mrs. Waddy (Seddon), Mrs. Coom (Makuri), Mrs. Archer Hosking and Mrs. Rishworth (Masterton), Mr. Charles Bennett (Otahuao, Masterton), and Mr. Arthur Bennett, who is on active service. Her relatives and many friends in Masterton were just beginning to look forward to her return to New Zealand from England.” [Dominion, Volume 12, Issue 55, 29 November 1918, Page 2]
