I am looking for any information re: June Hazel SMITH'S family. She was born in Edmonton, Alberta on June 23, 1920. Her parents were Ira Walter and Hazel Mary (nee LAFOUNTAIN) SMITH. Both parents were born in Ontario and died in BC. I believe that Ira and Hazel were married in Edmonton, Alberta sometime before WWI. June had two sisters, ? , Marjorie and three brothers, Wilfred, Jack and Ronald. All children are believed to have been born in Edmonton, Alberta. The family moved to BC from Alberta in the mid 1920's.

Ira SMITH'S uncle, Ira James GRANT, was living in Vancouver around 1912 with his mother Elizabeth Victoria (nee SMITH) GRANT. Elizabeth died in 1916. Charles Ezra GRANT, Ira James GRANT'S brother died in BC in 1929. Ira GRANT died in 1950.

The father of Hazel, wife of Ira Smith, was William LAFOUNTAIN, who moved to BC from Edmonton in the late 1920's. William died in the early 1940's and his death certificate lists Inez LAFOUNTAIN as his wife. Maybe William and his first wife, Annie COLE, were divorced. Annie's last name was WELLS according to Hazel's obituary in 1938. Hazel's birth certificate lists Annie's last name as COLE.
