    Notes 
    • Betty said her father was out of work in the mid 1930's. In 1938 they moved to Kitchen, Ontario where Clarence got a job as secretary of a lumber dealers association. The job only lasted a year as the dealers did not cooperate with each other. At that time his brother, Roy, offered him a job working for him in New Brunswick at this business, Devon Lumber Co. In June 1939 the family moved to New Brunswick and stayed there until their daughter, Betty, graduated from high school in 1942.

      Betty recalls that the family just loved living in Kitchener and would not have moved if they had known war would break out in September. When Roy Flower died in 1941 Clarence was out of work again he worked in a prison of War camp as a rough carpenter until the family moved from New Brunswick.

      She said “He didn't use James.  He actually used Clare in later years he went by name of Clarence James Flower.” (personal email)
