On an obituary of Ms Jean Hale, the mother of Ms Sylvia Hale M.L.C.

Two Saturdays ago The Sydney Morning Herald ran an obituary on Ms Jean Hale, in which the reporter recorded that

Jean's father died when she was seven, and her mother [Kathleen] remarried and had another daughter, Zelma. The family moved to Sydney but the collapse of the marriage meant that Kathleen had to work and Jean was sent to Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College to board - an experience that set in place an enduring loathing of the Catholic Church.

The article concluded with the following information:

Jean Hale is survived by Ronald, Sylvia (a Greens member of the NSW Parliament), Lesley, and their families, including six great-grandchildren.
[my emphasis]
Like mother like daughter, then?
