Ann, I called the Coquitlam paper to ask about the obit. They were not in existence untill 1984. The fellow at the paper told me that one could search the archives of the major papers, The Vancouver Sun or The Vancouver Province however that can only be done at the Vancouver Library archives. I very seldom get to that Library but if I do I will have a look for you. Perhaps you could be in touch with the Library...there will probably be a cost involved it they do a look up.
