Hi Robert,

I see Karen gave you a large amount of info but also see you are asking for death for Bessie.

This looks right.

*** THERE is no image at familysearch.org but there is the film # so if you were to go into any Mormon family search library and ask them to order that film for you, you would be able to see the actual entry with cause of death etc.

Here is death of her husband

There is also a death for a Marjorie Alberta Morgan which I will give you - mother is shown as Elizabeth Birth, but just in case it should be Bird I though you might want it.

THE birth records for B.C. at familysearch.org only go to 1903 so too early for children of Elizabeth/Bessie

I looked for a marriage for Frank and Elizabeth as marriage records for B.C. go to 1932 but did not find them, perhaps they married in Sask.

I could not find anything on Donald, Catherine or James Bird.
