     Norma Jean HABKIRK, born in 1913. She lived in Seaforth, Ontario. Norma Jean had an armed
          forces gravestone, so she must have served her country. Norma Jean was also an elementary
          school teacher and a bus driver for her brother Scott's bus company. She passed away in
          March 1961, age 48.       View her gravestone

     George Sterling HABKIRK, born 18 August 1922. He passed away  13 July 1970, age 47. He was
          known as Sterling. He was a  wireless airgunner with the RCAF, and he saw a lot of action during
          WWII. His plane was shot down by a German gunboat in the Baltic sea. Apparently they went too
          close to what they thought was a German fishing boat and ended up in a prisoner of war camp for
          years. "Sterling" was also a finish carpenter. View his gravestone.
