Previously, I blogged about my sister Lorraine who died at the age of 5 months. Her death registration erroneously listed her age as 5 years instead of 5 months. I was able to have Manitoba Vital Statistics correct that information, and I now have both a birth certificate and accurate death certificate for her.
As was the custom of the time, my sister was buried in an unmarked grave in La Salle Cemetery. My brothers and I had a grave marker made and installed this summer. Lorraine’s marker is between that of her great-grandparents Thomas Hogue and Philomene Mcmillan, and that of her great-uncle Louis Hogue.
