Elma Gibson

This is my cousin, she would be about the same age as me, born 1935ish she had a twin brother Kenneth, I last saw them at my mother's funeral, I found out whilst searching yesterday that Ken died in 2005 but I can't find Elma.

She was mis-transcribed in one place I found as Elina, would like to find if she too has gone.

They were born in Aston and the last address I have for Ken was in Sutton where his death is listed.

She seems to have been living in Wood Lane, Sutton Coldfield until her death in 2009. Married name Hales.

Thanks, I did come across the Hales name on my search but wasn't sure enough to add it to my tree. Couldn't find her birth either although I had Kens.
Must make a bit more effort. :)
