Re: Family KRATZ and Dorothy SMITH

Having pondered the death of Dorothy and her death notice SMH I wonder if she may have NOT married but simply changed her name from Birth name KRATZ to Smith. Bit how to prove that is beyond me.
As she was born 1896 she may have had issues during WW1.

She died at McQuarie Lodge- a Salvo run facility and they have a "NO FAMILY HISTORY RESEARCH" mentality so its not going to be easy to identify her as Dorothy Maud KRATZ.

Any ideas on how to link her back to her mother Florence - who remarried and died in QLD. (Flanagan).
It is possible that Dorothy "inherited" the property of her Aunt (Violet MAYNE died 1960) and that estate may have been used as equity for Dorothy to be able to live in McQuarie Lodge.
And is it possible to search the probate index for the death of Violet and perhaps a distribution of her estate?
