My Notes: It reads 1879 as the last year worked. My guess would be possibly 1939? Informant could be read as E.N. Coates. The info about cause of death is unusual and unique.
The microfilmat the BC Archives shows very little contrast so I have to wait to read it on a better machine to search for an obituary.
