FOR MORE HISTORY SEE P19970071001-GA. *UPDATE* IN 2017 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT RUTHANN LABLANCE CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF CLOTHING, INCLUDING A VEST DONATED BY KEN BOYSE. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION WAS COMPILED USING ARTICLES FROM THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD. KENNETH BOYES IS THE SON OF CHARLES HENRY “HARRY” BOYES AND IRENE BOYSE (NEE JOHNSON). HE WAS MARRIED IN MAY 1964 TO DOREEN ELIZABETH ROWE IN THAMESFORD, ON. FOLLOWING THEIR MARRIAGE, THE COUPLE LIVED AT THE RCAF STATION IN MONT APLCA, QC. CHARLES HENRY “HARRY” BOYES PASSED AWAY ON SEPTEMBER 1, 1980 AT THE AGE OF 83. HE MARRIED IRENE JOHNSTON IN 1936. HE WAS AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE LETHBRIDGE SHRINE CLUB, SERVING WITH THE CLUB FOR OVER 33 YEARS. HE WAS THE CLUB PRESIDENT IN 1952.

THE ARTICLE CONTINUES SAYING: “’LIONS THROUGHOUT CANADA POINT WITH PRIDE TO THE $117,000 ALREADY SENT OVERSEAS FOR THIS CAUSE. THIS MONEY IS ENTRUSTED TO THE WAIFS AND STRAYS SOCIETY, WHICH ADMINISTERS HOMES FOR LITTLE BOYS AND GIRLS WHO HAVE BEEN EVACTUATED FROM TARGET AREAS, OR WHOSE PARENTS HAVE BEEN KILLED OR INJURED IN THE ‘BLITZ’’, [MR. BOYSE] SAID.” IRENE BOYSE (NEE JOHNSON) WAS BORN IN BANTRY, ND ON AUGUST 20, 1908 AND MOVED TO CANADA IN 1909. SHE WAS RAISED AND EDUCATED IN THE FOREMOST, AB AREA.
