Thanks for the continued help. At the moment I'm away from home reading everything on my phone so it's quite possible I could have missed something.
I'll certainly have a good look when I get back.

Someone has an ancestry tree which mentions Miss Margaret Caferetta (as it is spelt) and a Matthew Mathias born about May 1879 North Dakota died about 1963 Edmonton Alberta. Showing a child (no info)

At least the initials would fit. Alas this one married a Phebe in 1915 and appears on the 1916 and 1921 census, so unless they split up and he married Margaret after this  ???

An Ontario marriage we might have picked up until 1935 but not British Columbia or Saskatchewan.

This tree is trying to link Matthew Mathias Roosa (1879 - 1963 but I think they have that date wrong - might be 1967)and Margaret Caferette to Mildred Jessie Chambers Roosa 1929 - 2911.  Mildred Jessie Chambers was married to a Joseph Roosa who was a teacher in Vancouver. Haven'y quoite found a birth date for Joseph Roosa.

The obit for Matthew Mathia Roosa would mention son Joseph in Vancouver -  ???

The obit for Matthew Mathias you have linked yo seens a likely fit - I mentioned in my original post that there were 2 children. Their names were Audrey and Joseph so fit with nanes given in the obit.
Hopefully I should get some time tomorrow on my computer to really go through things. Thanks again

The Mildred Jessie Chambers marriage could be to Margaret and Matthew's son...

Wasn't sure whether to post that inform on Matthew Roosa in case it proved to be a red - herring but pleased I did now.  We might be finding some links.

Also found "J" married/electrician on the 1953 Vancouver voters List with his wife Mrs "J"

Eleanor Caferata - Moubert - Leveque was also in town - which also is a good clue to we have the right people.
