“One of the pioneers of the Bahá’í Cause in the Western World”. Having first embraced the Faith in 1899 she soon afterwards went to ‘Akká, subsequently visiting many times both ‘Akká and Haifa for months at a time, learning from and assisting the Master in translating and transcribing the Teachings. Beloved by all the members of the Holy Family, her passing in November 1930 at the age of 72 evoked a cabled tribute from Shoghi Effendi, who knew her well in England and welcomed her in Haifa after the passing of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. She was the one entrusted to bring the robe of Bahá’u’lláh to England, and was a member of the National Assembly from 1923–1927. (“Bahá’í World”, Vol. IV, p. 263.)
