    Notes 
    • Florence (1882-1969) married William Jones, a Welshman, in 1911. He was a veterinarian. They lived in North Gower, Ontario before moving to Chatham, New Brunswick, where he set up a practice. In 1936, he became manager of the Chaleur Inn in Dalhousie, New Brunswick. They remained there until his death in 1954, after which Florence moved to Stoney Creek, Ontario to live near her son Lloyd and his family.
      Grandson David Jones recalls her house was on his route to school. He would stop there at times for lunch and on the way home twice per week for a violin lesson. David thinks she may have played at one time for a symphony orchestra, perhaps in Ottawa. Florence would mind David whenever their parents took a winter Florida vacation. David says she was strict, but caring, and had a fixation about waste, probably a legacy of the Depression. For example, if some of David's mother's cottage cheese was left in the refrigerator when Florence arrived, she would eat it even though she hated cottage cheese, because she couldn't bear to throw it away.
      Florence was deeply affected by Lloyd's death in 1965, and her health declined thereafter. She lived in a convalescent home after suffering a severe stroke, and died in 1969. She is buried beside her son.
