Cotey deaths-Toronto?
« on: Monday 19 October 20 23:02 BST (UK) »
I would like to find the date of death for Lester Leo Cotey born 1913 and his wife Edith Marjory nee Tiffin born 1918. They married 22 Oct 1938 in Toronto. I can trace them to 1972 living in York East where they resided for a number of years.
Could someone please have a look for an obit?

Thanks

Lester's obit in the Toronto Star 21 April 1986 page D6. 

It says Lester (Leo) Cotey died at the Kingston General Hospital on 20 April 1986.   Had lived in Carrying Place, Ontario.  In his 73rd year.  Son of Mrs Florence Flynn of Peterborough and the late Earl Cotey.  Husband of Edith Tiffin.  Father of J (Mrs K Lee) of Trenton.  Brother of Mrs Josephine Edwards of Peterborough.   Grandfather of 3 named people.  Great grandfather of 2 named children.

Interesting obit. It appears that they moved to be near daughter living in Trenton and wife Edith was still alive. Surprising that mother was still living. She was born Laura Florence Little 1895 Victoria Co and married William Earl Cotey 1912 Lindsay. William Earl died in France in 1917. There appears to be a couple of Florence Flynn in the Peterborough area
