Pioneers and Progress Alix Clive Historical Club, 1974

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Coote moved to Edmonton from Ontario in the year 1911 due to my father’s health.  In 1915 Dad came to Clive and felt so much better we moved down in August 1916.  Dad farmed for three years and then took over post office and telephone office from Mr. B.E. Allison and was postmaster and telephone agent from 1919 to 1945.

Dad… was on town council and Mayor of the town for several years.

Mother was very active in all the town activities, was a real worker in Red Cross during both World Wars I and II…. She was a provincial worker in the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, also president of the Ladies Aid…served on the Board of the Clive United Church and was on the School Board for years and years.  She was a life member of the Clive United church and also took her turn when we were short of help on the switchboard.

Dad and Mother had five children, Mrs. Charles Eblen (Elsie Margory)…Charles McCloy (Loy) married Esther Allison….Milton Clarmont married Helen Reyolds…Violet married W.J. Cunningham….Margaret married Vincent Duffy….
