Hi Dallas, I am a decendant to the Airth Family. My maiden name is Airth. My father was Herbert Blair Airth, his father was William Douglas Airth, a fire chief for the city of Edmonton Alberta Canada for quite a few years.My granfather William was married to a woman by the name of Marion Parkhill. She resided in Surry British Columbia for most of her life. My grandmother (Marion) lived in Edmonton, AlbertaCanada after the death of my grandfather William in Dec/1956 from an apparent heart attack. He passed away on Christmas eve . After my grandfather's death, Marion owned and operated the Highlands Bakery ( 64 street- 112 ave ) Edmonton as well as the Highlands Shoe - Renew. This was located on 65st-112 ave as well. She owned 2- homes on 65street-112 ave as well. She did quite well for herself. She later had a number of hip surgeries leaving her vitually impaired from the life style she was accustomed to living prior to her surgeries. Now my father was Herbert Blair Airth, born in 1932-june. Deceaced Feb-1995 also of a heart attack. My father had only 1- sibling a sister. Born Barbara-Jean Airth (Edmonton, Alberta -Oct. 13- 1934 0r 1935 not sure.)She resides in Richmond, British Columbia Canada. I am looking for some info on an aunt of mine. Her name was Tessie, or proper name (Teresa) Airth. Not her maiden name but her married name. She was a music teacher in Edmonton Alberta. I remember a boy or 2 one being named Carmen (deceased)now . I have been trying to track down a grandfather clock which my aunt Tessie had possession of untillher death. It was to be passed down to my father Herbert Blair Aith after her death, then passed to my father's oldest male sonupon his death etc. It has been a battle I can tell you. No one will give any info on the clock, where it is, why Tessie's family never contacted my father on handing over the clock etc. Really it is like there is a hidden agenda .Maybe you can help. Last time I sawmy Aunt(prior to her funeral) was at a nursing home called Hardisty Nursing Home, located off the Capilano Freeway, now being named Wayne Gretsky Drive backquite a few years. My father's cousin Heather Airth ( operates a facility called the Edmonton Emergency Relief Center) providing emergency shelter and clothing to the variousneeds of people in difficult cicumstances. I also have uncles (heather;s father Fred Airth- retired police officer or higher ranking officer, one of my dad's cousins worked for the city of Edmonton Telephones back in the day. There was an accident of that particular individual I believe it was Carmen, was hurt in a fatality incident. Some details are not to discuss on line. I dont know much about the facts I was only 15 years old when this took place in Edmonton, Alberta. I belive it was around 30 years ago or pretty close tothat anyway. So I would appreciate it if you could help with a little info if you have. I saw a will my Aunt Tessie had when we viited her when she lived in a highrise apartment in downtown Edmonton years ago. She had a baby grand piano in her penthouse apartment. I could not believe it. The piano was beautiful. After that she was seen by me in the nursing home. I did not get the chance to revisit her while she was still healthy and living on her own.This is allthe info I can speculate on for now, here is hoping to hear from you .I have 1- living sibling male- Raymond Douglas Airth he now has 2- boys ages 11 years and 9 years. Tyson Airth and Matthew Airth. Please respond, as I was reading some of your comments I think we might even be related. I lost a younger sister back in 1975- Patrcia Lorraine Airth (died in 3- weeks from lukemia) rare form , just crept up on her and 3 1/2 weeks took her life at 13 years of age. That was a real tradgety as she was never sick ever until that fatal 3 1/2 weeks.
Thank you for your time and here is hoping you will reply
