I updated the page on Elizabeth (“Lilly”) W. Duchesnay. She was the widow of Charles-Edmond Juchereau Duchesnay (1854-1901), who was an engineer and assistant general superintendent for the Canadian Pacific Railway in British Columbia. Lilly lived at 1973 Haro Street from 1906 to 1916.

I added newspaper extracts and other information relating to her move to England in 1930 and her death in London, England in 1935.
