Barbara Millar (b1895)
Barbara Sarah Bambrick, was my paternal grandmother, born Barbara Millar. She was the wife of Eric Bambrick, and she passed away in 1973, before I was born. Most of my cousins did get to meet her and it has been reported that she was a very beloved lady. She was also a business woman, and helped Olga, Graham and Harry in various business ventures, where she did not just provide capital, but instigated some of the most major aspects of the business.
Barbara Sarah Millar was born on August 12, 1895, in Alpha, Queensland, the child of William and Mary Jane. She married Eric William Bambrick on December 16, 1920, in Emerald, Queensland. They had seven children in 14 years. She died on October 20, 1973, in Rockhampton, Queensland, at the age of 78.
