Ontario Marriage seems to give the correct parents you mentioned :-

Lena Heywood - 1910 Toronto Canada - aged 21 years. Spinster. Clerk.

Marriage Date:   1 Sep 1931 The Township of East York, York, Ontario, Canada
Father Harry Heywood - Mother Alice Heywood - Spouse Frank Norris Winfield. Bachelor. Secretary.

Looks like there is a second marriage....using the death date you found for Lena's father, I located his obit in the Toronto papers.  He died at the residence of his daughter 170 Alfred Ave, Willowdale (this is an area in Toronto) on Sept 15 1952.  In his 68th year.  Husband of Alice.  Father of Lena (Mrs W E Menendez) and Harry.  Interment York Cemetery.

Wedding notice for Lena's brother Harry in the Toronto Star.   He married Edna (Teddy) Wissler, daughter of Mr and Mrs Charles Wissler of Sundridge, on Dec 11 1943, at St. David's Anglican Church.   One of the groomsmen was Mr Frank Winfield, brother in law of the bridegroom...so this is definitely the right Harry Heywood :)

Excellent RK.  I suspected that the marriage didn't survive, they just never appeared together in records again.

FIND A GRAVE

Lena Heywood Menendez - 1909 - 1988

Forest Lawn Cemetery Orangeville, Dufferin County, Ontario, Canada
PLOT   Woodland Section - plot 78A

Thank you so so much for this info on Lena Heywood..  I'm a descendant of Charlotte Leach (nee LUNE) who married Lena's brother Richard Leach in Toronto, April 1930. I would dearly love to trace Lena's descendants which may hopefully uncover more stories/Info on Richard and Charlotte. I think they may have been 'close knit'. I have Richard and Charlottes 's death details...

I may need to 're-post' under Lena Winfield. Was there a second marriage for Lena ?...

Thanks, Graham
