Mrs. F. Dyson Early Alta. Settler Dies

Mrs. Florence Dyson, widow of Arthur Dyson, succumbed yesterday in the Kelowna Hospital at the age of 92 years. She had been a local and district resident since 1927.

Survived by seven children - most of whom reside in the city and district - 31 grandchildren and 35 great grandchildren, the late Mrs. Dyson was one of the earliest settlers in central Alberta, and cherished her membership in the Southern Alberta Oldtimers' Association.

Born at Swansea, Wales, June 19, 1865, she spent most of her life in England at Ipswich. At the age of 19, she came with her mother and the family to Calgary, going a little later to a homestead in the Red Deer district. This was in 1884.

In 1892 she married Arthur Dyson of the North West Mounted Police in Calgary. In 1904 she went to South Africa, to the Transvaal, to join her husband, who was serving with Col. Steel in the Canadian Mounted Rifles. He died in South Africa in 1910 and was buried there.

Later that year, Mrs. Dyson returned to Calgary. She came to the Kelowna district in 1927 to live with members of her family and for the past 18 years she had been residing at her home at 766 Sutherland Ave.

Left to mourn are: five daughters, Mrs. H.R. (Nina) Perry, East Kelowna; Mrs. E.R. (Ella) Cherer and Mrs. Muriel Snelgrove, both of Kelowna; Mrs. I.H. (Nora) Abercrombie, Calgary; and Mrs. C.B. (Peggy) Boyer, Enderby, and two sons, Terence and Spencer Dyson, both of East Kelowna. Besides the 31 grandchildren and the 35 great-grandchildren, she also leaves one brother, Frank Hudson, Fort St. John, B.C.

Funeral service will take place Saturday afternoon at 2:30 at the chapel of Kelowna Funeral Directors, with Rev. J.E.W. Snowden of the Okanagan Mission-East Kelowna Anglican Parish officiating. Burial will be at the Kelowna cemetery.

After Arthur Dyson died in South Africa, his wife Florence took the children to England and then returned with them to Canada. Catherine (Morad) Dyson is quite sure that Arthur Dyson died in South Africa. interview with Catherine Dyson, March 13, 2003
