Will probated Lewes 10 August for Mary Eleanor Toovey of 1250 Pierre Avenue Windsor, Ontario, spinster, who died 29 Nov. 1950.  Beneficiary was Millie Eleanor Marion Dubois, spinster for slightly under 2,000 pounds.  No mention of brother.
With that date you could contact the Windsor library to see if they can find an obituary for you.

Looks like there is an obituary in the Windsor Star for Eleanor Mary Toovey on Nov 30 1950.  http://projects.windsorpubliclibrary.com/digi/obits/results.php?lname=toovey&fname=&maiden=&spouse=&m1=0&y1=0&m2=0&y2=0&lim=25&search=Search

Wow that was a good find Runkitty.
I wonder if Halsted was mentioned in the obituary.
I will need to follow this up.
Thanks

The obituary doesn't mention a brother. It says she was survived by one niece in England (not named). Here's a link:

An interesting lookup indeed Jacquie. Maybe Halsted died prior to her death?
Thanks for effort.

Another possibility could be they were estranged. Not everyone is forgiving of a sibling who went to jail especially the offense he was convicted of.

yes that may be true.
If Halsted was still alive, he would be around 70 years old. Her niece Millie in UK would be around 45 years.
I do have a photo of the two of them (date unknown) in Winsor which I think maybe in the 1940's.
I know at one stage Halsted lived at 21 Mutual Street Ontario Toronto.
I have found an entry of a H. Toovey in 1949 Labourer living at 8 Sackville Street Rosedale Ontario.
Just not sure if this is the Halsted I am searching.

If you have a photo of them from the 40s then I would suspect he may have died before her.

Very interested in your research. My own tracking of the Toovey family has recently reached a stage where Google searches keep returning your posts (Lingwood Toovey, Halsted Toovey, etc). These brick walls can be frustrating :)
