Trying to trace what happened to Gertrude M Samuels, a crew member on voyage from Sydney to California in December 1961

I was a 1961 £10 POM I arrived in Melbourne aboard the P&O SS ORSOVA on November 26 1961. My “ story “ can be found on line in the Melbourne Immigration Museum archives. I have ever been in contact with any of my fellow migrant passengers. It would be nice to share with any of them,not that I remember individuals by name.
