Surname of Person: HEFFRON, Edith May
Time Period: 21 March 1889 - 16 May 1919
Query

I am seeking information on Edith May Heffron who was born in Lanark and died in North Hope, Ontario in 1919. She was a Methodist Deaconess and I am seeking information on where she was trained and where she might have served, in addition to North Hope, as a deaconess. I have a lovely book of sewing samples which she made while she was in Toronto. I have contacted the United Church Archives and everyone I can find who might know something about her. I have birth and death records but am seeking more about her life. I know she is buried in Lanark. I would love to see a picture of her if anyone has one and would be glad to share what I have learned so far.
