Obituary - Mr Frederick Munday
The death occurred in the Canbera Community Hospital early on Saturday of Mr. Frederick Munday, a pioneer of the Canberra district. The late Mr. Munday, who was 81, was born at Gungahlin, where his father was head gardener. He was keenly interested in the land and took up a property known as Evadell at Ginninderra, more than 50 years ago. After 13 years, he transferred to the Yass district, where he engaged in farming for 20 years. He retired from the land 13 years ago and until his death resided in Higgins Crescent, Ainslie.

The late Mr. Munday was one of the pioneer worshippers at St. John's, and was a church warden at Jeir for 12 years. He will be buried in the family grave in the chuchyard of St. John's to-day.
The late Mr. Munday was predeceased by his wife 19 years ago. He is survived by a daughter (Mrs. E. T. Bolton, of Ainslie), and two sons (Frederick, of Ainslie, and Patrick, of Ginninderra).
