I wonder if you could investigate a suicide that happened in the late 1960s at Thirroul, NSW when the wife of David Waddell took her own life after being shut up and/or faced with not seeing her daughter/s.

My memory is a little hazy as to the exact sequence of events, but what I do remember clearly was the implication that there was something bad about Mrs Waddell. We were brainwashed into thinking that she took her own life because of her wrongdoing or thinking, not that the EB had caused her so much mental suffering as for her life to be unbearable.


Quote:
Mrs. Waddell's first name was Rosie. She died in the late 1960's - believed to be 1968.

It is confirmed that EB pressures are believed to be the primary cause of Rosie Waddell's death.

The death was reported by the media - believed to be the Sydney Morning Herald. Unfortunately, the SMH does not have archives prior to 1990. The news item(s) are likely to be in the Sydney State Archives.


Quote:
The date of death is confirmed as September 1968. The location is possibly Austinmer (the next suburb to Thirroul) NSW Australia.




Important: This is a confirmed suicide, but we are to base our reporting on press reports - this is a direct request from family members.

There was a newspaper article that covered the death, but so far we have been unable to locate it.


Quote:
A member has uncovered the needed press article with some unexpected heavy-duty help (more some other time).

The following supplies the sad details that Rose's family insisted we base our reporting on.

Thanks to the hard work and perseverance of the members who have worked so hard to unearth these stories.

If someone has the time to transcribe the above, it would be a great help.


Can anyone send us this article which was lost on a similar forum?

SECT ORDER LED TO WOMAN’S DEATH – S.M.

WOLLONGONG, Friday

An order by the Exclusive Brethren had culminated in the death of an Austinmer mother of five, the District Coroner, Mr W M Sherley, S.M. said today.

He said the harsh directive by the sect had broken up a family and caused the woman, a sect member, seven years of emotional distress.

Mr Sherley made the remarks at the conclusion of an inquest into the death of Rose Waddell, 49, of Wigram Road, Austinmer, in September.

He brought in a finding of suicide by strangulation.

Mrs Waddell had been found by her husband hanging from a rafter in an outside toilet near their home.

Mr Sherley said the woman had been in a state of depression before her death.

“She appeared to have no interest in the future.” He said.

Her condition had stemmed from the departure from the family home of three of her five daughters seven years ago.

A directive had been given to the daughters by a religious sect known as the Exclusive Brethren.

TRAGIC

Mrs Waddell had been admitted to Gladesville Psychiatric Centre for treatment last April.

Her husband requested that Mr Sherley withhold details of the inquest from publication.

But Mr Sherley said he felt the public should be made aware of the tragic results of the case.

He said: “Following from the harsh directive given by this sect, it had an effect not only of interfering in and breaking up the family unit, but also caused the deceased to go through seven years of severe emotional distress.

“It culminated in her suicide.”
