Manitoba – Mothers’ Day, 1914 – 52 Ancestors

May 11, 2014

Manitoba - Mothers' Day, 1914

White flowers today for my mother, Janet Muriel (Scott) Rogers, b. 1914, Amy Estella (Irwin) Scott, b. 1884, both born in Newdale, Manitoba, Canada, and for Janet (Carmichael) Irwin, b. in Canada West, 1851, d. in Newdale, 1927.

No lilies though, not even Lily of the Valley, once one of my childhood favourite flowers. Amy (my Na) didn’t like them; she remembered Lily of the Valley grew on her little brothers’ grave.

Peter Larsen & Co. advertisement, Brandon Daily Sun, May 8, 1914, page 8.
