Found her she died in 1930 Sydney.  Looks like William was a bit of a ladies man after she died.  Some reading to do on Trove.
Thanks Janette for your help.  I would never of guessed the name was Gass.

Hi Suzy,
Did you manage to find anything more about Evelyn?
I was trying to find out about her two children.  Which I've been told might be Mary and Ronald.
Thank you, Rachael

That's right Mary and Ronald.
Mary married a John
And Ronald married Eileen
Sorry can not put surnames as they could be living
Ronald died in Brisbane.
Are you related Racheal?  Lyall are my side.
