Edith Annie Verry married John Rainforth from Enfield Otago, a butter factory manager and later a builder, of Palmerston North (Rainforth St is named after him) and lived most of her life at 97 Russell St Palmerston North. They both died about 1948 and would have been buried in Terrace End Cemetery in Palmerston North. They were my maternal grandparents. Edith was much involved in the Methodist Church.
