Louise, born in Toronto Sept. 26, 1895, as a child would visit at our place every summer, where she and I (Will Keith) could get into a lot of mischief.
After finishing high school, she took a Commercial course and worked in a law office as a legal secretary.  She married Thomas Sands on June 19, 1926 who, with his father, had a tailoring business on Bay St., Toronto.  Tom served in World War 1 along with Con Smythe who was his brother-in-law. 
Tom and Louise adopted Gordon when he was about six years old³.  Tom died on Oct. 25, 1942. 
Later Louise worked in the York township office which was closer to her home.  She had retired and was still living in their first home on Nelson Ave. in 1968.  She later lived at 114 Major St., Toronto.²
