STORRINGS (nee KIDD), Barbara Flora McDonald - died 1996
« on: Monday 20 May 19 13:23 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone.

Barbara Flora McDonald Kidd was born 5 December 1908 in Eckville, Alberta, parents George Kidd and Barbara Doig.

On 28 August 1934 she married John Douglas Storrings in Smithers, British Columbia.

Barbara died on 18 December 1996 in Victoria, British Columbia.

I am hoping to find an obituary for Barbara.  Any assistance greatly appreciated.

Thank you for that - that is much appreciated.

Damn, no children.  And her brother died unmarried.

You probably have the marriage already, but just in case:

Flora's brother's death registration indicates that Flora was living in Campbell River in 1973.
(Really far from Smither's).

Thanks, bbart - I did have those.

It seems the images for Flo's parents aren't available (mother Barbara is mistranscribed as "Ridd"), but I was able to confirm their details at familysearch.org.

It's a pity.  I am sure that Flo's father George is the man I've been looking for the past 6 years, but if he has no legitimate descendants it looks like my search is over.

A library relatively close to me has most of the microfilms (although the viewers are getting very dim now!)  I should be able to get there in the next week or two if you want them, unless you are very sure it's the wrong family.
