Edith, in order to support her family, went to work as a cleaner in private homes.
By 1939, the family had moved to Mabel St., Highgate Hill, South Brisbane.
In later life, Edith lived with each of her family members, staying a short time with each.
In early 1971, she fell and broke her right femur, and, with her age, the associated shock and the nature of treatment required, failed to respond. and died two months later.
Edith Leonard died at Mount Olivet Hospital, Kangaroo Point, on 21 Jun 1971, at 91 years of age. She was cremated at Mt Thompson Crematorium on 23rd June. [ Niche. 23 : Sec. 1 : Wall 7.]
