Esther Kenny nee Silverstone obit - Calgary
« on: Tuesday 22 September 20 15:24 BST (UK) »
Can someone find an obit for Esther who died in Calgary in 1969(26 Oct?) please? She was the wife of Herbert "Bert" Kenny. I have lots of info re Herbert who later died in Blenheim, Ontario.
I think Esther was born Apr-Jun 1929  Stepney, England and mmn Frigis(?). An Esther Silverstone arrived New York 20 Apr 1953.

Think that death date is 1996 not 1969 ?

Death notice.

Thanks Sandra. That obit does not help me one little bit in trying to trace her. I thought that she may have turned up in 1939 records but can not see her.

I wonder if the cemetery might have extra info about Esther in their records?
