Another Lithuanian leaves Adelaide
Well known Lithuanian social worker Mrs Varnauskas, Unley after living in Adelaide for 7 years is leaving the country for the USA to join her married daughter in New York, Being a widow and no longer young, she still used to find enough time to visit Lithuanians in hospitals and give help to anyone who was in need. About 60 members of the Lithuanian community, many of them former patients, last Saturday held a party at Mrs Navakas home, Hindmarsh to bid farewell and wish Mrs Varnauskas good luck in the new country. For her charitable activities Mrs Varnauskas was presented with several valuable gifts and souvenirs. The Advertiser 1 Sept 1955
