Scattering ceremony farewells the ‘Queen of Glebe’

On Sunday June 18, the ashes of Sarah Murdoch King OAM – known to most Glebe locals as Sadie (and to some as the ‘Queen of Glebe’) – were scattered in the garden at St John’s Anglican church in Glebe where she had been a parishioner.

Sadie died on January 17, 2022, just one month after her 100th birthday.

In 1985, she received a Medal of the Order of Australia ‘for service to the trade union movement and to the community’, which included actively campaigning for public housing in Glebe and advocating for women’s rights in the workplace.

Sadie’s longest and closest friend living in Glebe, Kay, is pictured here at the scattering ceremony with Mazie the dog and relative Kate.
