  • Notes 
    • Born at 75 Bexhill Road, Croyden, England. Immigrated to Canada at age 14 on November 11, 1927 on the Montnairn(Canadian Pacific Lines), arriving in Quebec, Quebec. Ethel, Winnie, and Joy arrived together. Her father joined them in Montreal when the ship he was captaining arrived. Ron arrived in Quebec on May 30, 1926 on the Ausonia (Cunard Lines). The family story is that they came to Canada so that Ron could play semi-pro soccer. Stated that their contact in Canada was brother-in-law Jack Drury, 901 Maple Ave, Powell River.

      In school in Croydon (St. Catherine's?) Winnie was a gymnast and an excellent student.

      Winifred was a musician. She gave piano concerts and also played in a dance band in Powell River called the Moose Pirates. Her brother, Ron was in the group. The only instrument Winnie hadn't played was the harp. Ron and Winnie composed music together. My dad (Jock Waugh) told me that on long drives, Winnie would create advertising jingles for fun.

      1945: Winnie entered the US at Detroit with her sister, Joy, and her mother Ethel. Going to visit her uncle, John Stewart, 272 B.W. 9th St, San Francisco.

      When Jock was in graduate school at UC Berkeley, Winnie worked as a bookkeeper for a real estate company.

      Winifred was diagnosed with liver cancer shortly after giving birth to Glenda. She died in Oakland, California where her aunts and mother were living, and was buried in Vancouver,BC.
