Lady Woodward was born Amy Freame Weller in Ballarat, and known as Bud or Buddy. Eric Woodward spent his long and distinguished military career alternating between the British and the Australian Army. He was appointed governor of NSW in 1957 and retired in 1965. They moved to Wahroonga on the North Shore; after his death in 1967 Lady Woodward took a harbour-view flat in Kirribilli.
The governor was traditionally patron of the NSW Rose Society and his wife traditionally dedicatee of one of its members' roses, in this case Riethmuller's only surviving hybrid tea.
