Turner, Georgiana

Mrs. Georgiana Lynn

The death on October 5th of Georgiana, widow of Vaughan C. Lynn, late of Best: and Co., Madras, in.her 85th year, will recall Miss Turner, for some years Sister of Lawrence Ward, St. Bartholomew's Hospital. She was a very pretty woman, with a lively wit, and her sayings were proverbs in the nursing world for many a day.

After a wealthy marriage, she lived for some years in India, and on returning home passed the many years of her widowhood on her estate in Surrey. In her old age she kept in touch with some of her old Nurses at Bart's, who will miss her friendship.
