Rootsweb shows a death for a Russell Adelard FONTAINE, age 69
Died Beausejour, Manitoba
It says his obit is is Winnipeg F-P, 1999-6-17

I think F-P may stand for Free Press but not sure

I just found his obit at newspaper archive.com/winnipeg-free-press

http://newspaperarchive.com/winnipeg-free-press/1999-06-17/page-44

The obis is a bit odd as it looks like some words are cut off and some missing, but that may be the way they do it if you aren't paying for the service ?

Anyway you can get a bit of info from it such as his parents names - Marha nee BUNN and his father Anthony Fontaine. Odd though that his wife is not mentioned.

I did not find an obit for Dorothy.
