Hi, The Vernon Museum and Archives has research staff who will do a look up and if they can find the information in 20 minutes they do not charge. Since you have an exact date of death for John perhaps an obit will give the names of children who may still be in the area.
Here is their website with their holdings.http://www.vernonmuseum.ca/archives/index.php
Since you have information from a directory on Annie perhaps you could write to the address and see if neighbors have lived there long enough to know what happened to Annie perhaps to even the year of her death. Since her husband was cremated she is probably not buried but the Vernon Family History Society www.vdfhs.com
has pretty up to date cemetery lists and Vernon City hall has indexed alphabetically all the names of people buried in Vernon Cemetery even cremains if buried in someone elses plot. If you can find the date of Annies death this would help when contacting funeral homes. Vernon Funeral Home, Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, Bethal Funeral Home. Vernon Crematorium. Hope this is helpful.
