He lived at 1888 Beach Avenue in 1905 and at 1999 Beach Avenue in 1906 and 1907.

He was vice-president of the Canadian Club, chairman of the library board, governor of the Vancouver General Hospital, an organizer of the Vancouver Golf and Country Club and a life member of the Shaughnessy Golf Club. He later became the chairman of the zoning board of appeal.

He was an avid collector of clicks, china and pewter.

Annie was also well-known in Canada. She was a published poet and writer of short stories, and she was a member of several literary societies, including the Vancouver Poetry Society, the Canadian Authors’ Association, the British Authors’ Society and the Bronte Society. In 1935, she became a member of the Order of the British Empire.

Annie died in Vancouver on January 12, 1938.

During the First World War, Edith worked for the federal Department of Soldiers’ Civil Re-Establishment.

On December 21, 1921, in Vancouver, Edith married Sydney Dunn Scott, who was a journalist. He was born on April 3, 1890, in St. John, New Brunswick. His father was Snowdon Dunn Scott (1851-1923), who was a journalist and newspaper editor. Sydney’s mother was Emma Ada Wood (1854-1942).

Sydney later worked as the managing editor of the Vancouver Province newspaper. (Sydney’s twin brother, Cecil Oscar Scott (1890-1946), worked at the Province as the magazine editor.)

Sydney died in West Vancouver, British Columbia, on December 31, 1962.

Edith died in West Vancouver on January 1, 1980.
