bullet  General Notes:

After Frank's father died, he took over the management of the Mentieth elevator. Dora came to Manitoba from Saskatchewan as a young woman. While she was involved in her nursing career, she contracted Tuberculosis. This necessitated spending seven years in a sanitorium near Regina, Saskatchewan. (Qu'appelle Sanitorium)
Dora Dodd kept house for Frank. Dora McBurney came to visit and stayed on. Jack McBurney, her father, had travelled by train from Admiral, Saskatchewan. He was bringing his cattle to his youngest brother's farm (Russell) because of the terrible draught in southwestern Saskatchewan. Frank and Dora were married in 1940. In 1941, Frank and Dora adopted Lloyd McBurney's (Dora's brother) twin sons Lynn and Lloyd. Lloyd's first wife June, had died from complications following the birth of the twins.
A few years later, Frank was promoted and the family moved to Forrest, Manitoba, just north of Brandon. In the spring of 1947, the family moved to Dauphin, Manitoba. Their son Phillip was born in November of that year. Dora worked for many years in a doctor's office. Frank was very active in the Masonic Lodge, and Shriners, and both he and Dora were involved in the Eastern Star. Frank was involved in Lions Club and was a life member of the Dauphin Curling club. Dora was very artisically talented, and did beautiful petit point needlework. She died very suddenly in 1977, and Frank continued to live in Dauphin till he died from renal failure in 1986. 15
