     The following selected information is extracted from her obituary. Survivor(s): Mrs. G S White and Wyndham Allen Bent.1 Evelyn Mary White was buried on 11 September 1945 at Te Awamutu Cemetery, New Zealand.6,1,7
     The following obituary appeared Waikato Hospital published in Hamilton 10 September 1945:

BENT
.— On September 8, 1945. at the Waikato Hospital, Evelyn Mary, dearly-loved wife of Wyndham Allen Bent, of Mangapiko, Te Awamutu, and younger daughter of Mrs G. S. White, of New Plymouth. Private interment tomorrow. (Tuesday).

Assuming this is the same person.1



     December 2016 Research notes:
Look for futher confirmation that Evelyn Mary White is the daughter of George Stephen White and Evelyn Wilson. While the locality of her death is consistent with other sources, she was the older of their daughters, not the younger as mentioned in the obituary.1
