  • Notes 
    • Nellie was the third of seven children born into the Johnston family. First there was Molly, Jean , then Nellie, all born at their grandmothers home at East Maitland. Then the family moved to John Street Cardiff where Bill, Lorna, Ella, and Colin were born. They all grew up there as a family in Cardiff.
    • Nellie lived a very full life, she enjoyed her family and friends so much, she also enjoyed the odd beer or sherry and later took to a nice glass of lombrusca on special occasions. One thing Nell would say is you can not beat a good drink and a good laugh, these are a few of the things friends & family will miss about our Nellie. Through out these years Nellie also enjoyed travelling around Australia as well as a few overseas trips.
