Sarah Downes Chomley

Sarah Downes Chomley, younger sister to Patricia, whom I posted previously. Sarah was born on Jan 13, 1912 to Francis Charles Chomley and Mary Aileen Charlotte Anderson at Sale, Victoria. Sarah studied law and on Mar 2, 1945, the State Full Court on a motion, admitted her with another person as barristers and solicitors. She worked as a solicitor for a law firm that was acquired by another firm, Weigall and Crowther. She continued working for them and in 1955, she was admitted as a partner. Sarah passed away at the Baxter Village Nursing Home in Frankston, on May 11, 2004, aged 92. If you are related to this lovely lady, a large version of the photo below, taken by photographer Spencer Shier in 1933, is available at the State Library of Victoria.
