Kathleen, Edward & their young daughter, Susan moved to Port Coquitlam, BC from England in 1967 to start a new & exciting life in Canada.  Kathleen soon owned a local shoe store in Port Coquitlam and enjoyed being part of the business community.

She liked to travel and returned to England several times for visits and family weddings.  She also travelled to Italy & Russia, and more recently to Hawaii several times with her daughter.  Kathleen & Fred enjoyed road trips, travelling through Nevada & California to enjoy the sunshine of Palm Springs.
