    • The following obituary was writtem for Annie in the Adelaide Observer.

      BRADDOCK - on the 8th May 1926 at her son-in-law's (Dr C Chewings) residence, Annie BRADDOCK in her eightieth year.

      "The late Mrs E.T. (Annie) Braddock, who died at her son-in-law's residence, Glen Osmond, on Saturday, was well known in the far North in the 'sixties. She was the thirteenth child of Mr Cox, Contractor and builder of the old Supreme Court and many other buildings in Adelaide. She married Edward Thompson Braddock. second son of the late Dr John Braddock in 1864, and her wedding trip was by train to Burra and thence by the old style mail coach to Hookina, where her husband was in business. Later the family and business found themselves at Blinman. The Blinman Mine was then in full swing, and while Mr Braddock prospered in trade, Mrs Braddock gratuitiously assisted Dr Powell in his work. In those days there were no trained nurses in the bush, but the Dr discovered that Mrs Braddock was quite capable as such, and for years her services were greatly in demand at Blinman and Sliding Rock, to which latter place the family moved.

      When the Sliding Rock Mine shut down, through a strike, the Braddock family journeyed to Farina, where the husband died. Mrs Braddock carried on the business, but eventually sold it, and moved to Marree (then called Hergott Springs). Her "farthest north" was a trip to Cowrie Station, on the Diamentina River, when the late Mr August Helling owned it.

      Mrs Braddock was of vivacious and cheery temperament, always a voracious reader, and entertaining conversationalist, and a good hostess - qualities that endeared her to a large circle of friends in the lonely bush. She was a good horsewoman, and sometimes took a ride on camels. In fact, her great popularity largely lay in her capacity to adapt herself to all manner of persons and varying conditions as they came along, but probably for her sympathetic nursing and caring for the sick will her memory be treasured the most.

      She had a happy but strenuous long life and passed away in her eightieth year. Three daughters - Mrs John Bannigan, of Unley; Mrs C. Chewings of Glen Osmond; and Mrs F.C. Siekmann of Kensington Gardens and one son Alfred Braddock of New Zealand, as well as several grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren survive."
