    Notes 
    • In later years after moving from the city to 888 Manawagonish Road, later known as Lancaster and then again as Saint John. She and Uncle Rubie operated Johnson's Tourist Home.

      We all loved her and she took me shopping and she bought me dishes from a department store in Saint John during the month I spent with her after eighth grade. I still have the dishes which were a birthday present.

      I loved the summer I spent with her after eighth grade and and loved the brown sugar sandwiches for lunch.

      Gary and I stopped and visited on our honeymoon and the next day she took me to a tea at her church and Reg's boys took Gary to a rugby game.
