I think that it is probably her - in the Moncton paper of the day there's a small piece re the death of a "Mrs. Orr" at the Moncton Hospital (first patient to die there) on the same date.  I cannot find a burial for her - absolutely no record in St. Anseleme (where one of their children is buried) nor Grande Digue.They were married Protestant - living children were baptized at St. Bernards and they were students at the primary school once connected to St. Bernards.
Oh cool! Where did you find the newspaper article? Is it online somewhere?

I did a quick search in the Grand Digue catholic records in Drouin but couldn't find a baptism close to that birthdate.
Found the mention of Mrs. Orr in the paper when I was looking for something else using microfilm of the newspaper at the library. What happened re her burial is a real mystery.
