In September 1960, seven months after the death of Mary Bertha Raine, the Sunday Mirror was reporting with incredulity that 'The singing barmaid of a dilapidated outback New South Wales pub became the woman who left most of her £439,626 estate to the University of Western Australia Medical School. The bequest will bring her total gifts to the University to nearly £750,000'.
