Summary

Emily Norbury migrated from England to Sydney, New South Wales, in 1937. A skilled youth worker with acknowledged leadership skills, she was appointed senior tutor at the (Anglican) Deaconess House in Sydney. Ordained in 1939, she was appointed head deaconness and continued in this office until her death in 1944.

Although associated with the Deaconess Institute for only seven years, Deaconess Norbury presided over a period of growth in enrolment numbers and the introduction of missionary training courses to the curriculum offered by the institute.
