Helen Elizabeth Kerr is my grandmother and my father's mother.
Her father's name is Robert Kerr. And her mother's name is Mary Jane Dickson.
She is the youngest of 3 children, and thus had 2 siblings. The oldest, her brother Robert Kerr. (Who I remember as Uncle Bert. And who I think was called Bertie when he was a kid.) And her sister, who was the middle child: Jane Kerr. (I don't know if she had a middle name or not.)
From what I've been told by my father and other members of my family... her father is known in Canadian history for discovering/mapping much of Canada. And her mother is the first "white"... ie., the first non-american-indian child... born in Manitoba, Canada.
She married (my grandfather) Charles Stanislaus Krempeaux, and had three children.
- Paul Douglas Krempeaux
- Charles Robert Krempeaux (my Dad)
- Audrey Jane Krempeaux
She died when my father was just a child, which I think I had a major impact on my father's life. Causing him to leave home early.
From what I know, my father (Charles Robert Krempeaux) grew up in The Pas, Manitoba, Canada while his mother, Helen Elizabeth Kerr, was alive. So she spent part of her life living there.
I never met her. She died way way before I was born or even my parents got married.
