Hi,

Benjamin Kakuk's obituary is in the Globe and Mail newspaper on 14 July 1961, page 29.  He was John Benjamin Kakuk, and he died on July 12 1961.  Husband of Hilda Arden of 121 Spadina.  Father of Jeanne.

I see that Howard died on July 28 1921 and is buried in the Toronto Necropolis

His wife Janet died just a few weeks earlier than he did (June 1, 1921)

A possible theory... ???
Maybe Mary died around 1911.  The family moved to Toronto in the same time frame.   Perhaps they didn't get around to ordering a headstone until much later??   Maybe even after Howard had died - so the children were responsible?  The headstone date could be an error?

Hopefully the cemetery can give you a date of death/burial.

Looks like Mary Emma is in Mount Royal Cemetery.  For a fee of 5 dollars, they will send you the information they have --

Hi,

Have you contacted the cemetery to find out her date of death/burial?  Perhaps they will have some additional information about her?

If you can get a date of death, you can check the Montreal Gazette for an obituary.   Looks like 1903 is online.

Perhaps the second wife was also called Mary?
ADDED - No - she was Janet Robson.  See marriage information in a later post.

Mildred's obit from 1977 has a lot of information about her.  Not sure if you need it or not.  As far as siblings go...it says she is predeceased by one brother (who isn't named in the obit), and three sisters.  Survived by one half brother, Robert Carson of Kamploops BC.
