Their first house was located at 288 Blake Street before moving to 2234 Gallagher Avenue the following year. Historically the neighbourhood was nicknamed "CPR Town" due to the large number of railway workers who resided there. Edna May (Deanna) was born on the 4th of December, 1921 at the old Grace Hospital, located at Arlington Street and Prescott Avenue in Wolseley.
