She was president of the Ladies Auxiliary from 1956 until 1978.

The Auxiliary played a major part in the purchasing and equipping of the Yass Ambulance Station and its vehicles, by holding fund raising activities such as catering, clearing sales, dances, etc.

Mrs Carey was honoured with life membership of the NSW Ambulance service.

She was presented with a plaque from the NSW Ambulance Service in 1985, in appreciation for service and assistance to the Yass Ambulance Service.

She was a foundation member in Yass of the Barnardos, Far West and Spastic Organisations.

ArticleStory From Lillian Carey, née James, as told to Mrs Norma Gow:

The James family owned the lime kilns at Coolalie. We lived there for many years. I went to school there but my mother wanted me to have a better education so I came to live at Hamilton Hume's home "Cooma Cottage", three miles out of Yass on the Hume Highway. My grandfather and grandmother owned it - it was a lovely house; Hume the explorer had it built by convicts. My grandparent's name was Bowden (my mother's people) - grandfather was an Englishman, grandmother was German. We used to walk to Yass and back each day to school.

When the first World War broke out, one of the older boys went and he got badly gassed and was sent home and lived for quite a few years but died from it. The youngest boy was only a bit over 18 when he decided he must go and said if granny did not sign his papers he would kill himself off his big Harley Davidson motor bike; so finally she gave in and he went too.

We had horses, cows, sheep - and we kids had to help feed them, even the pigs, when we came home from school as Grandad couldn't do it all. He was a darling but Granny was very strict. Finally Mum and Dad left Coolalie and came to live at Yass. Dad joined the Light Horse and was in camp at Sydney. He got very sick and after getting wet on a big exercise and developed pneumonia, was very ill for quite a long time; finally he died from consumption and that is the Henry Augustus James, 38, whom you saw on the headstone, 23.4.1918, in Yass cemetery. My mother died and she was buried in the same grave (Rose Emily) aged 83 years. They were the best mother and father anyone could have.

There were six James boys and three girls - every James could play almost any musical instrument and dance and skate; all were so lovely. Our father left Mum with four boys and myself. Brother Harry has only been dead three weeks. He went to work as a carpenter - he was only 16, and I left school at 13 and also went to work. We had had to work, the other three boys still had to go to school.

Wally was the next one - he was a motor mechanic. He went to Wollongong to work in a garage and after a while he managed a big garage for years. He married and had five daughters. He took up flying in his spare time and during the war he flew to all the hospitals in Aussie with hospital supplies and he started the South Coast Flying School. Finally he bought himself a plane and left Wollongong and went to Bankstown airodrome and set up a flying business - he had two more planes. He used to fly doctors etc. all over the place. Took lots of goods for P & R Williams to farmers; he was a wonderful flyer. He did the first around Australia car trials and took all the photos etc. He used to come up here and take Mum and me down to Bankstown in ¾ of an hour. Sad to say, he had a heart attack at 36 and died at the drome three years after dear Mum. He had three daughters, one a chemist.

I broke my two hips and I am still on two quads and Charles has Paget's disease in his knees and is on two sticks, but we can do our own work and look after ourselves. Our son and daughter live quite close. They were both in the Forces. Boy has 5 boys and 1 girl; Joyce has 3 girls and two boys.
