Mary Monica Meehan, daughter of Michael Meehan and Annie Harris.

Like her brother John Francis, I know very little about the life of Mary Monica Meehan.Born in Yarrawonga in 1903, she was known always as 'Monica' rather than 'Mary'.
Monica completed her schooling at Yarrawonga, and moved with her family to Northcote in the 1920s. She lived at home with her parents until their respective deaths (her father in 1932 and her mother in 1957).The family lived in the same house in Pender Street, Northcote( or is classified as both in electoral rolls...'Northcote' until 1942, and then 'Thornbury' from then onwards.
Monica never married, and died in 1983, aged 80. She was buried in the Fawkner Cemetery on June 26, 1983. She is buried in the same grave as her brother, Michael Meehan, who predeceased her in 1958.
