Note N299 Index
I was told that she was a Belgium woman whom Thomas met there during the war. She was that, as per the data relating to her arrival to Canada in 1919. I also found her coming back to Canada from Belgium on August 5, 1927, on the SS Montiarn, with the two daughters Dorothy and Rita. Presumably, she was visting her family there. It says where she was born and gives her parents' names but it is too blury to read. However, now that I have the marriage certificate, I am reasonably certain of their names. The marriage certificate says that they were married in the Arrondissement of Nivelles, in the Province of Wallon Brabant, Belgium. I cannot find the actual town or village spoken of in the marriage certificate. The photo that I have used for her says on the back "This picture was taken in Belgium July 1956".
Having looked at City of Vancouver directories, she was last there in 1985 but gone in 1986. If they are accurate, then she died during that time or perhaps late 1984.

His obituary from the Troy Echo (Montana) reads:
The funeral of E. L. Dunn, who died last Friday noon as a result of injuries received while in the performance of his duties as a Great Northern switchman, was held Sunday afternoon at two o'clock at the Masonic lodge in the Kenzie Building, the Masons being in charge. Reverend G. V. Fisher of the Kalispell Presbyterian Church delivered a very impressive address, not until personal, yet consoling and appropriate to the sad occasion. Mr. Fisher knew the deceased for years and he voiced heart sentiments.
Preceding the address the full Masonic funeral service was rendered, led by Mr. Hutchinson of Whitefish, who also officiated at the Masonic service in the local cemetery. The hall was filled with saddened friends from Troy, Libby, Whitefish and Kalispell. High school students assisted the undertaker in handling forty beautiful floral offerings
A select choir, composed of F. Miller, C. H. Engelken, L. A. Hosea, A. M. Hubbard, Mrs. B. Stackhouse, Mrs. C. W. Petty, Mrs. W. F. LeFevre, with Mrs. L. C. Kensler at the piano, rendered two hymns "I Need Thee Every Hour" and "Safe In the Arms of Jesus."
The pallbearers were C. W. Petty, V. A. Sather. W. Bissell, W. C. Hurley, L. C. Kensler and J. Brooks.
The deceased was born 36 years ago at Chatham, Ontario and lived in Troy for the past 15 years, during which time he was in the employ of the G. N. Railway. He was a member of the Masonic Order and the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen and is survived by a widow and two sons in Troy, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Dunn, a brother and sister at Warwick Alberta; a sister Edmonton and a brother W. H. Dunn at Kalso. The latter and his wife attended the funeral.
The passing away of Ed Dunn, as he was familiarly addressed, will never cease to be regretted by the people of this community. He was a good husband, father and citizen; industrious, broad-minded and unobtrusive in a great measure. His bereaved ones have the sympathy of Troy and this vicinity.
