Yes that certainly looks like them. I think we had better leave it there as they may still be alive.
Obit for Mom Esther in the Salmon Arm Observer newspaper Jan. 21, 1998,

thanks so much for all that. today would have been my mother's birthday, she died the same year as Esther. She didn't know about what happened on the Canadian side after 1953, when Esther's father Ben, then 80+ came over for the coronation, and walked from where he was staying, in the suburbs, into London to see the procession.
Esther was named after her grandmother, my gt grandmother.
You're welcome. Glad to have helped and that some births/marriages/
deaths were pinned down.
