Mrs Florence Anderson, an outstanding worker for the Labour movement for 35 years, died yesterday at her home in Smith st, North Richmond.
As secretary of the Miscellaneous Workers' Union she was the only woman trade union secretary in Australia.
She retired in 1946, but continued to represent the union on the Trades Hall Council until her death.
Mrs Anderson was a vigorous advocate for women workers, and appeared on their behalf before many wages tribunals.
The funeral will leave St John's Church, East Melbourne, at 10am today, for the Burwood Cemetery.
