Summary
  • PASSING OF MRS. J. C. BANCKS THE sympathy of all sections of show business goes out to E. J. Tait and his family, together with J. C. Bancks, well-known artist, in the passing of Mrs. J. C. Bancks, formerly Miss Jessie Tait. The late Mrs. Bancks died with tragic suddenness last Sunday morning. A talented girl with a close intimacy to the theatre, she was a leader in fashion design and widely known for her accomplishments ments in many artistic fields. The late Mrs. Bancks was an ardent dent worker for charity, particularly larly for the Kindergarten Union, and her efforts in this direction won her a love which was indicated when a special tribute was paid by a party of mothers at the service held at St. Mark’s, Darling Point. Paying a tribute to the social service vice given by Mrs. Bancks, Canon Lea, who conducted the service, said that the core of her life seemed to be thought for others and the unselfishness that was the basis of the Christian creed. “In the silence of this church today day I can hear the sorrow in the voices of the children for the children’s ren’s friend/​’ he added. “She was the embodiment of a loving daughter, a loving wife, and a real friend. Death cannot touch that which was really she; time cannot tarnish it." Many carloads of floral wreaths accompanied the funeral procession, sion, and the vast number who paid their last respects to the memory of a splendid Australian girl included cluded representatives of every walk of life. Only 28 years of age, the death of Mrs. Bancks cast a shadow of sadness in many quarters, and her memory will be retained in the splendid spirit which made her one of Sydney’s best-loved personalities. The chief mourners were: Mr. J. C. Bancks (husband), Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Tait (parents), Mrs. Byron Wrigley (sister) and Mr. Wrigley, Mr. G. E. Tait (brother), Mr. John Tait (uncle) and Mrs. Tait, Mr. T. B. Timbury (uncle) and Mrs. Timbury, bury, and Mr. Turner (brother-inlaw law of Mr. Bancks). THE TATE MRS. BANCKS.
