Just putting her death as showing from the index

Deaths June quarter 1944 
Rita M Cohn age 21 in Calder district  (Definitely recorded as COHN)

Did she have an older brother Walter Harold Cohu, born 1906?  (Channel Isles select births and baptisms on Ancestry stop at 1907)

There is a Walter H Cohu and Ivy M Cohu living in Shipley in 1945 ER.

This thread might be of interest:

http://www.GenesReunited.co.uk/boards/board/ancestors/thread/1365173

(though all those mentioned have died ....)

Added:
These are 2 possible nieces/nephews, though both have died, and would have no memory of her anyway:
Births June quarter 1942 
 Eileen M Cohu  mmn    Barrett    Wharfedale   
Births June quarter 1944
Michael N Cohu   mmn Barrett    Wharfedale   

Also this one
Births December quarter 1940 
Pamela R Cohn   mmn Barrett    Wharfedale   

This is a Michael John NOT Michael N, but probably born 1944 :
'Michael John COHU
COHU MICHAEL JOHN On November 18, 2007, in the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital, Grimsby, Michael, aged 63 years. A service will be held on Wednesday, December 12, at the Great Grimsby Crematorium, at 9.20am. Any further enquiries please ring Steven Near'

That link identifies Walter and Ada, but is unaware that Rita has died, just has a list of anonymous possibly living children apart from Ivy (1914-1919), so may have no further information to help.

Though it is always worth trying to contact tree owners.
