Looking at the Manitoba Vital Statistics site, there is a marriage for Susie Nicoll to Robert Foster in Winnipeg on 8/12/1920.  Likely the Mrs R Foster mentioned in Agnes's obit

Obit for Robert Foster - he died Aug 5 1955 in Transcona, Manitoba.  Husband of Susan.  Address was 204 Victoria Ave E.  He was 69.  Interment Elmwood Cemetery.

If they lived in Transcona... this could be Robert and Susan in 1921

Good :)

I can see from the cemetery site that Andrew and Margaret S are in the same plot.  His date of burial fits with his short obit - and there is a note in the paper on July 20th 1925 saying that his funeral is being held "today".   The death year from the obit and from the Manitoba Vital stats page is 1925, but the cemetery says burial on July 20 1928.  Odd.  Must be a clerical error.

Margaret S died in 1918 - according to the Manitoba Vital stats index, and the fact that Andrew is a widower on the 1921 census.  However, the burial date listed on the cemetery site is 7/17/1925!   A mystery - unless they bought the plot later and had her moved in 1925 after her husband died, so she could be buried with him??

yeah I noticed the difference in death and burial years wasn't sure if they were the same couple wasn't sure if all burials had been recordered or not
