Sarah Helena Nash Keen had lived in Canada and in BC for 55 years when she died. She was the daughter of Edward Day Twiss (born in Ontario) and Ellen Thompson (born in Ireland). She was a widow; Somers Funeral Home records list her as Mrs. J. Keen.

Although the death certificate (completed by the funeral home in Vancouver) shows her buried in the Masonic Cemetery in Nelson, the Somers records include itemized transportation to Kaslo, where John Keen was interred in 1922.

John Keen (bachelor of full age, born in Richmond England, civil engineer) and Sarah Helena Nash Twiss (spinster of full age, born in Ireland, daughter of Ed. A. Twiss) were married in Victoria BC on 14 Feb 1893.
