This is possibly Mary Bourke who was born in Launceston about 1860 to John Bourke (1799-1865) and his wife Mary McKew (1826-1904). Mary had three brothers: Thomas, 1846-1924; Henry, 1848-1932; and Charles, 1860-1914; and a sister Elizabeth, 1864-1930. The family attended the Church of Apostles. Mary died aged 70 on 25 May 1930 and was buried at Carr Villa in Section A 49 next to her brother Charles who is also pictured in the Family Album. There are two memorial windows at the Church of Apostles dedicated to the Bourke family, one to Mary senior erected by her children and one in memory of the five children.
