Well done for finding that one! So, the 1908 death can't be their mother Mary.

Added- could this be Mary? born Longford, widow-

So, did the story about parents get mixed up and was it the father who died and mother couldn't look after the children?

Mary Charters of 24 Henrietta Street died of bronchitis & cardiac failure at 51 Lisburn Road Belfast (now the Belfast City Hospital) on 30 December 1925, reported age 57, she was recorded as a stitcher.

The occupier of that address on street directories either side of 1923-25 (when we know Mary was there) was a James Quinn (ie. these folk in the 1911 census, but she may have been simply boarding with them):

30 Dec.1922 "CHARTERSóWanted to know the whereabouts of Kitty Charters. Lizzie Chartere. Charlotte Charters, Bobbie Charters, end Fanny Charters, last heard of twelve years ago in Ontario West, Canada. Information"

6 Jan.1923 "CHARTERSóWanted to know the whereabouts of Kitty Charters, Lizzie Charters, Charlotte Charters, Bobbie Charters, and Fanny Charters, last heard twelve years ago in Ontario West, Canada. Information"

This sounds like a mother who really wanted to get in touch with her children.
