     In the obituary of Bob Moffat who died 23 May 1993, his wife, Lydia Moffat was listed as predeceased.4

The following biographical fact was included, November 2017:
Lydia Watson and Lydia Caroline Moffat of Saskatoon were friends for many years. Carole thinks they may have been cousins.5

     The following information is from my personal research, November 2017:
Last year, my brother sent me a link to this story to see if Bob Moffat was a relative of ours. He was not.

However, today I was reviewing papers from my mother-in-law’s estate and came across a funeral memorial card for Lydia Caroline Moffat whose funeral was Nov 26, 1992 in Saskatoon. When I googled her name, I came upon this article again. their obituaries in the StarPhoenix confirm they were married to each ther,

It would be interesting to see if any pictures of Lydia Watson nee Kreutzer were included in the two albums. We are not sure, but this Lydia Moffat, who was born in Cupar, may have been a cousin of Lydia Watson who was raised in Lipton, Saskatchewan. They were born about the same time.2,6
