She was married to Dudley (Ben) Arthur Wright in 1936 in New Zealand, in the Canterbury region.
Mother to 7 children, Robert Llewellyn, Pauline Ann, Arthur Laurence, Janet Mary, Kathleen Judith, Alexander John, and Ian Frank. All most likely born in Christchurch, New Zealand.
Her parents were Frederick John Black (1876-1917) and Ethel May Saunders (1896-1918).
It has been said that she spent her youth in Nazareth House Orphanage after both of her parents had died, however i have contacted them and they have no record of her.
It has also been said that she had a brother, possibly Robert, but i have been able to find no information regarding him either.
Her whole life has been rather a mystery to all of us in her family.
If you have any information regarding her, her parents or possible siblings please message me!
