Dorothy Butler Alexander (nee Colbeck) died on 4 January 1977 and we now know that she was buried with her two sisters Flora and Ruth in St Stephens. Their father John was buried in Purewa Cemetery. Her name wasn't on the headstone in 1995 and her death notice just said private internment. The special issue of the 'Auckland-Waikato Historical Journal (October/November 1996, Number 68) on St Stephens didn't note this burial either.
