George Wakeling 1975 obit
« on: Tuesday 05 May 20 16:21 BST (UK) »
Could someone see if they can find an obit for George who supposedly died Mar 1975 in Leamington, Ontario? I had a look on the Windsor Library site but he does not show up.

Thanks Ed

Thanks DB. It appears that he may have died in Toronto and not Leamington.

Much appreciated

You're welcome  :)

If RunKitty is around, she may pick up an obit in the Toronto paper, it may have more details.

Hi...

The obit is in the Toronto Star, March 24 1975.  It is the same as the one DB posted - except it adds that he was interred in Pine Hills Cemetery.

Bit of a surprise as his wife Aretta is buried in Lakeview Cemetery, Leamington and George spent most of his adult life in the Leamington/Windsor area. Possiblly moved to Toronto after Aretta died. Family?
