Headmistress Who Acted as Council Clerk.
The death took place last night, in the Montagu Hospital. Mexborough of Mrs. Annie Elizabeth Kaye (82). She broke her thigh six weeks ago.
Mrs. Kaye, some 17 years ago, retired from the position of headmistress of the Old Denaby Church Schools after 25 years’ service there. Previously, she had been headmistress successively St. Mary’s School. Sheffield, and in Birmingham and London. She had taken an active part in Primrose League work.
When she went to Old Denaby, over 40 years ago, her enthusiasm led to her appointment secretary of the “Lady Mary” Habitation of the Primrose League, a position she held until recently.
Several times she received presentations in appreciation her services. Mrs. Kaye was devoted church worker and before Old Denaby was absorbed in the Conisborough Urban District was, for some years, clerk to the Denaby Parish Council — the only woman parish clerk in England at that time. She retained her faculties to the last and took keen interest in both national and local affairs.
Mrs. Kaye had been a widow for many years. She leaves two grown children.
