Since sending you my message I managed to located Edith and Robert John Irish on an on-line obituary index out of Alberta.

Google ‘Grand Prairie and District Branch Alberta Genealogical Society’
From their Home Page, click on ‘Obituary Index’ in the column on the left side of the page.
Note that they charge for copies of obitiuaries: ‘Requests for obituary copies may be made to our "Researchers Group". We request a donation of $10.00 per obituary plus the cost of photocopying and postage for this service.’
Scroll down and click on ‘Peace River Records Gazette 1952 – 1971
The list is alphabetical & Edith and Robert John are the only IRISH surname.
You will notice that there is an entry for a Decourcey IRELAND. He was the brother in law of Edith (nee Tronson) Kieffer Irish as he had married Edith’s younger sister, Mary, in 1900. The IRELAND family moved to Alberta about 1907.

If you obtain a copy of Robert John Irish’s obituary, I’d appreciate knowing what it says.

Thanks,
Carmen K.
