Cora Louisa Burrell
She was one of three woman members of the suicide squad appointed by the First National Government in 1950 to vote for its abolition. The other women appointed in 1950 were Ethel Marion Gould and Agnes Louisa Weston. Only two other women, Mary Patricia Anderson and Mary Dreaver, had ever been appointed to the Council (in 1946).
