In 2011, two well-known Toodyay identities passed away:  Elsie Muriel (nee Padman, 29 May 1922 – 8 July 2011) and Joseph Charles (Mac) Wroth (6 September 1921 – 29 August 2011).  In their different ways Elsie and Mac made an enormous contribution to Toodyay, including being members of our Society from 1987 to 1995. Robyn presents some stories about the Wroth family and their ancestors.
