Veronica married in England during the war.


Marriages Mar 1916   
GIBLIN  William E     
WALSH  Veronica M
Marylebone  1a 1471

Some Electoral Roll registrations in NSW as well as her death notice, suggest the practice of medicine continued in her family through her sons.

I think Johanna died in QLD ??

Burial
Nudgee Cemetery   WALSH   JOHANNA TERESA            11/04/1935

http://vmsos.catholic.net.au:8008/mapguide/nudgee/public/?s=09BCB110171BB75BFF0A7A4A05C3734C819F52F8

Funeral notice
http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/36801387?

Cemetery record has the wrong year of death.
QLD death index
1936   B31191   Johanna Theresa   Walsh   father Thomas Foran   mother Catherine Casey

A bit doubtful I would say-

 
QLD Electoral Roll
1903
Address-Kent Street Hamilton (Brisbane)

WALSH, Johanna Theresa. HD
WALSH Henry Alfred. Horse Trainer.

Henry Alfred WALSH is buried at Nudgee Cemetery with or adjacent to Johanna.
He died in 1915

Electoral Roll QLD
1925
Address- Factory Rd. Kingaroy.

WALSH, Johanna Theresa. HD
WALSH, Henry Francis. Labourer

It looks as if after her husband's death, this Johanna Theresa moved to live with her son whose initials in the death notice of 1935 , given by Giblet, match the name
Henry Francis.

Sue, ... my connection is through my lovely lady (whose tree I am researching, with her permission) whose deceased mother married a Walsh, her maiden name was Andrewartha ... and the Walsh connection to Young St, Parkside is due to an in memoriam notice in the "Advertiser" on the 7th September 1912 which reads ... "Walsh - In sad, but loving memory of my dear husband, and our dear father, Michael Walsh, who died at Young-st, Parkside, September, 7, 1909. R.I.P. Sadly missed. - Inserted by his loving wife and family"
Notices that Michael Walsh's widow places in later years where she names her sons (including my lady's grandfather) confirm that this is the correct Walsh ... Michael Walsh and his wife, Mary Agnes (nee Gapper) were my lady's great grandparents ...
and so when I saw 57 Young st, Parkside on Ellen Walsh's military paperwork I started to research her some more, but so far have not found an absolute family link.
Some of my research has suggested that the Parkside Walsh's may have a link to Walsh's from Victoria, and prior to that Walsh's in Tasmania
Ellen's forebears were in Victoria prior to Narrabri, and prior to that the line goes to Tasmania ... but nothing is set in concrete ... am still digging

Doesn't seem right either, I think this mans wife was a an Esther but if Mollies mother was Johanna it might be another clue

On Saturday morning the death occurred, of Mr. Thomas Walshe, who for the past 20 years was identified with Killarney Station. Deceased was a native of Tasmania.  Deceased leaves behind him a widow, three daughters and one son. The eldest daughter, Miss Mollie Walshe, entered the Gunnedah Convent some time ago, and was recently received as a nun at the newly-opened convent at Moree.  The other two young ladies are promising and notably gifted pupils of the Sisters of Mercy, Narrabri Convent. Hard as the bereavement is for Mrs Walshe and family to bear the son will be the mainstay of his mother and sisters, for whom general sympathy is felt, and whose sorrows are shared by all classes of the community. The funeral of the deceased took place on Sunday morning, tho obsequies being celebrated by the very Rev. Father Hearn.
