  1. Donna Marie Wilson :

    I believe I am a cousin to Joan Bremner. My maiden name is Donna Gardner. My maternal grandparents were Mary and Edwin Ironside – my grandfather had a brother named Lyle Ironside (the father to Joan). I have been trying to find Joan for quite a few years but didn’t know where she lived after Airdrie. My condolences to the family. I remember Linda as a tiny little girl of 3 or 4. If you would like to call me please do as I am interested in meeting you again.
    Blessings to all of you. Donna Wilson
