         It becomes our painful duty this week to record the demise of Mrs. John Johnston of Kolapore, after an illness of only a few days. She was the daughter of the late T. B. White, whose sudden death a few years ago startled the whole community and filled it with regret.
         Mrs. John Johnston was a woman of bright and cheerful disposition, tireless energy and complete forgetfulness of self when the sick were to be nursed or a friend needed her assistance. Many a sick room in the vicinity of her home will in the future ,miss her presence and ministering care. By her genial disposition she endeared herself to all who had the privilege of her acquaintance. Having had a great deal of sickness in her own family, it is no doubt greatly due to her own tireless nursing that she has been able, so far, to have kept the family circle complete.
         There survive her, her mother, Mrs. T. B White of Collingwood, three sisters-Miss Myrtle White of Collingwood, Mrs. Wm. Johnston of Thornbury, and Mrs. Clifford Sine of Cobden;also five brothers-Messrs. T. B. White of Kolapore, George P. White of Idaho, Jas. L. White of Duncan, E. F. White of Cincinnati, Ohio, Robert H. White of Napinka, Man. and Bert White of Rochester, N.Y. She leaves, besides her sorrowing husband, 5 children,-Misses Sophia, Ethel, Mabel and Rhoda and Master Rob.
         To the bereaved ones, we, in common with the whole community, extend our most sincere sympathy.. Hereinafter cited as Thornbury Herald and Grey Report.

The home of Mr. and Mrs J. B. Swift, Indian Head, Sask., was the scene of a quiet wedding, on the afternoon of January 12, when their only daughter, Gertrude Ivadelle, became the bride of R. H. Johnston, of Kerrobert, Sask. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Smith-Windsor. The young couple are both well known to many Regina citizens, the bride being one of the faculty of Regina College Conservatory of Music for some time, and the groom having been connected with the business department of the same institution in 1913-14. Mr. and Mrs. Johnston will reside in Kerrobert.11

     In the obituary of James Britton Swift who died 24 May 1935, his daughter Ivadelle, Mrs R H Johnston was listed as a survivor.12
     In the obituary of James Ernest Swift who died 25 November 1967, his sister Gertrude, Mrs R H Johnston of Regina, was listed as a survivor.13
     Gertrude Ivadelle Swift was Piano Teacher, Darke Hall. In a Google Search I found the following:
Darke Hall. Home of the Regina Cons (Conservatory of Music, University of Regina) and, until 1970, the Regina Symphony Orchestra. The gift of Regina businessman Franklin N. Darke, the building, with its fine 578-seat auditorium, was designed by J.H. Pontin. Darke Hall opened 6 Jan 1929, 'dedicated to music and arts and the enrichment of the lives of the people of the city'. Ambrose C. Froom donated a Casavant pipe organ and Dr Hugh MacLean a large art collection more recently housed in the Norman MacKenzie Art Gallery. In 1963 extra rehearsal, recording, storage, and dressing rooms were added and in 1986-7 the basement and foundations were rebuilt. Darke Hall has housed performances by Jorge Bolet, Marjorie Lawrence, Nino Martini, Nan Merriman, Jan Peerce, Teresa Stratas, Jean Watson, and Efrem Zimbalist, among others.
