Orr, Jane Harrison

Miss Jane Harrison Orr, who for the last seven years has devoted her life to district nursing round her home at Ballymena Co. Antrim, was trained at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, London where she obtained her certificate.

Though gifted with abilities such as might have won her a place among the literati of her country, she felt so keenly the miserable condition of the poor, when laid aside by sickness, that she determined to devote her talents and energy to the task of lessening their sufferings by means of careful nursing. She and her Assistant nurses have both fallen victims to that most terrible of fevers, typhus fever, contracted while nursing a family of six persons in their own home.........
