Karrakatta Cemetery and Crematorium, Western Australia. I have used the Ask A Librarian service at the WA State library to see if they can find death notices for them, and tell me if she is Mrs Bennett in those.

Good idea.

Wonder what the girls were doing in VIC.

Haven't quite worked out why you think Lorraine Carra might have been her sister. I might be a bit slow today lol

There is a Lorraine of the same surname marrying in VIC the following year, I think it was.

There are a few recent obits in WA of people by that surname, so there may have been a few families of them, even though it was a new one for me. The maiden name of the wife's paternal grandmother was Bennett. It's possible that there was a connection between her grandmother Bennett and the Victorian Bennett family she was marrying into, and that's why she (and her sister?) came to Victoria.

Funny you should mention that.

The sister of John William died in 1906 as Esther Bennett, 1st column: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article25640542

Have you seen that NAA has military records for John William (WA) and a William John (VIC)

Lorraine could be the daughter of William and Susan.
