  • Notes 
    • SHIRLEY ELIZABETH EDGOOSE 1934-1997


      Shirley Elizabeth EDGOOSE was born on 12 December 1934, daughter of Raymond Thomas James and Brenda May EDGOOSE.
      (GRO March Q 1935 Surrey S.W. 2a 542)
      Raymond EDGOOSE had married Brenda May TURNER on 21 May 1934.

      She trained to become a State Registered Nurse at St. Thomas's Hospital, Lambeth Palace Road, London. She was on the electoral roll at that address in 1958 and 1959.

      Shirley E. EDGOOSE was on the Electoral Roll at 58 Teignmouth Road, Willsden, in 1960.
      (MR/PER/C/1064)

      She emigrated to Canada on 1 April 1960, sailing tourist class from London for Montreal, Canada, on the Saxonia. She gave her address in the UK as 58 Teignmouth Road, Willsden Green.
      (Outward Passenger Lists)

      She worked initially at the Royal Victoria Hospital, Montreal, and became a Canadian citizen.

      In 1964 a doctor at the Royal Victoria Hospital told her that he had a grandmother or great grandmother by the name of Edgoose who lived or used to live in the Lake District of England. Neither the doctor nor his grandmother or great grandmother has been traced.

      She married John Edmund MARCUS at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada, on 13 November 1965. They had two children, Sarah and Penny, and later divorced.

      She died at home, 15 Shaftsbury Drive, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, on Saturday 8 March 1997, a little over two years after a diagnosis of terminal cancer.

      She is buried in Kitchener, Ontario. There is a gravestone.
