Dorothy Holcombe 1986 obit
« on: Sunday 08 October 17 18:04 BST (UK) »
I wonder if someone could please find an obit for for Dorothy who died 28 Aug 1986 in Missisauga. I am interested in seeing if it mentions her brother Wilfred who I am trying to trace. An obit for a sister(Norma Misener) in 2013 indicated that Wilfred was deceased. Wilfred Meier was born 1908 in Guelph. He shows up in 1921 and that is all that I know.

Thanks Ed

Obituary in the Toronto Star on Sept 2 1986, page C8. 

It mentions her brother Wilfred Meier of Brantford.  Doesn't say that he is deceased.

Dorothy died at her home 6509 Glen Erin Dr, Mississauga.  Wife of the late James Meneer.  MOther of G of Mississauga.  Sister of Wilfred Meier of Brantford, Mrs Norma Misner and Mrs M Stone both of Simcoe.  3 grandchildren.

My Wilfred George Meier unfortunately does not show up in Brantford voter registration records. There is a Wilfred G Meiers and wife Margaret showing up but there is also a record in OCFA for them as Meiers so likely not my guy.

Contact the Mount Hope Cemetery office in Brantford to see what information they may have on the Wilfred George Meiers and Margaret.
Could be an error adding "s" to the surname  ???
