The Past Whispers And I Remember


Bertha Burns
1892 - 1955

Bertha Burns was born in 1892 in the Irish Settlement in Quebec City to Elizabeth Williamson and George Burns the youngest of their four children. Her childhood and early life remain a mystery until 1925 when she married my grandfather, Ovila in a chapel at Notre Dame Cathedral in Montreal.

She may have worked at the trolley line as a cashier in Montreal.

They had four children, Norman, Pauline, George, and Lorne.

Bertha was 63 when she fell to her death from a 3rd story window on Rivard Street. Her death was ruled accidental but there are questions.
