Lady Shiffner Elsie Burrows OBE

Her father was an American with business interests in Hong Kong where she was born in 1872. [Source: "Our Parish" by Jack Harmer, 1991.]

Met John Shiffner at a Charity Ball at the Royal Pavilion, Brighton.

"Lady Shiffner worked in the Voluntary Aid Detachment during the 1914-1918 War and perfected a method of taking impressions in papier-mache for the fitting of artificial limbs. She became head of that department, again at the Royal Pavilion, then used as a War Hospital. For this work she was awarded the OBE [in 1920] and became a Dame of St John of Jerusalem. Later she became ill witih a complaint of the thyroid gland, at that time inoperable. But experiments were under way at Guys Hospital. Dr Langmiur-Watt asked if she would agree to become a 'guinea pig' in this new field of medicine. She replied, " If the Lord hadn't meant it I wouldn't' have met you in my hour of need!" It worked. She recovered. Between the wars she served as a Magistrate and as Girl Guides District Commissioner. She served with the W.V.S .attached to the American Embassy during World War II in London."

Died six weeks before her hundredth birthday.
