Alma May Lee 1911-1995

Further to my previous 2009 article on Alma May Lee Brody here, I now have further information on her after finding mention of her marriage in Australia.
I had originally thought her name was Alma May Lee Brody but now I see a full stop after the words Lee and Brody, so it seems her maiden name was Lee and her married name was Brody.
First I found mention of an Alma May Lee marrying Robert James Brody in 1941 in Victoria, Australia:-
I searched the Australian Electoral Rolls on ancestry.com.au and found them both living at various addresses in Wannon, Hamilton, Victoria between the years 1942 and 1980.

I also found them in one family tree on ancestry which told me Robert was born c1916 and died 1975, Alma was born c1911 and died c1995. Robert’s parents were Ellery James Brody and Agnes Mathieson Paton and I found his birth registration. Alas, no such luck with Alma so I’m not sure if she was born in Australia or not, possibly one of these birth registrations in Victoria:-
I gather from the family tree on ancestry that they had two daughters and one son, all still living so hopefully one of them or their children will find this post and contact me.
If anyone knows anything about or is connected to the LEE or BRODY families please do contact me, I would love to pass the photo onto a family member, even a distant one. Contact by email is preferable but if you are going to leave a comment please don’t forget to include your email address.
