367. Elsie Irene Mullins

Miss Elsie. Mullins, whose death was briefly referred to in last issue, was the daughter of a local resident who identified himself with everything for the welfare of Glenbrook, being a member of the proposed race syndicate, here. He lost his wife some 10 or 12 years ago. Elsie, who was about 18 years of age, was considered the best lady player in the local tennis-club. She was the winner of quite a few tournaments at Glenbrook, and represented, Glenbrook club in nearly all the matches of late. She was at Lithgow as a competitor in the Western Districts Easter Tournament, when she had an attack of quinsey, which later, developed into pneumonia.
The local courts were closed for the balance of the week out of respect for the memory of their late member, and at the annual meeting on Saturday night last the president referred - in glowing terms of their late  member, and asked the secretary to convey the deepest sympathy to the father, sister (who is also a member of the club) and brother, from himself and the club.
Referring to  the deceased, "The Cumberland Argus" ~ says:-Quite a gloom was cast over the girls' department of the Parramatta S.P.S. when word was received on Wednesday morning that their school friend, Elsio Mullins, had passed away in Lithgow Hospital after a short attack of pneumonia.  While at the Superior Public School Elsie brought great honor to herself and her school in the tennis tournaments. In 1919 she won the serving competition at the P.S.A.A.A. Sports against all comers. In 1920, at the Public School tournament, held by the New South Wales Lawn Tennis Association at Double Bay, she won the Singles Championship of the State, and with Beryl Curney (another Parramatta school girl) she won the Doubles Championship of all Public Schools. It was also with Elsie's good play and assistance that Parramatta S.P.S. suc ceeded in winning, without, the loss of a single set, 'the tennis shield presented for competition by the N.S.W. Lawn Tennis Association. Unassuming, and ever ready to help weaker players, Elsie Mullins, a thorough sport in all senses of the word, endeared herself to teachers and girls; and of her we may truly say, ''To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die." The deepest sympathy of all in the school and of those with whom she came in contact outside goes out to the bereaved father, sister and brother.
