History

Florence Byrant, daugher of John Henry Bryant (-1934) and Ida Wearne (d. 1924), was born in October 1901 in Sherbrooke. During her lifetime, Florence served as the organist for the Church of the Advent and was active in other artistic groups within the community.1 On 1 October 1927, Florence married James Wark (1897-1969). It may well be their shared appreciation for the arts that brought James and Florence together. The couple had two daughters, Catherine (1929-2009) and Barbara (b. 1930) who each pursued interests in the arts, focused around the theatre, dance, and music. Florence Wark died in Sherbrooke in 1993.
