I've found Laura living in Queensland in the 1977 and the 1980 Electoral roll but haven't found either Venetta or Carol as yet.

Maybe the Queensland State Library's Ask us service may help with a look up of the death notice for Laura.

I have pm's Cyndi the link the Queensland State Library's link to Ask Us.

Copied over from linked thread

Ryerson Index
SIMPSON Laura Pearl - Funeral notice - 06MAY2007 - Death 86 at Warwick, late of Deucher, formerly of Rubyvale -Warwick Daily News 09MAY2007
Have you asked Ryerson or the 'Ask A Librarian' service (as suggested by Valerie on the other thread) for details of the Announcement? It may give married names or grandchildren. Grandchildren in particular might be on facebook.
If the funeral directors are mentioned, they may be willing to pass on a letter to whoever organised the funeral.
You might also consider placing an advert in the local papers asking anyone who is related to contact you.

From Ryerson index, sadly an early death for Thomas Nixon Simpson. Perhaps this was the source of your last known date?

SIMPSON Thomas Nixon Death notice 10AUG1954 Death 33 late of Ermington Sydney Morning Herald 11AUG1954

Nothing for Laura...perhaps she re-married? If so, might the children have taken their step-father's name?

At least with the names on this thread, they are available on an internet search. You could try Facebook, and of course, search trees on this site.
