I looked in the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail just in case and
found only this one:

>From The Toronto Star, Monday, April 29, 1963:

WOODS, Marion A. – At Sudbury Memorial Hospital, Friday, April 26,
1963, Marion A. Shane, beloved wife of Hercules Woods of Sudbury, dear
mother of Rev. Cecil S. Woods, Brownsburg, QU; dear sister of John,
Toronto. Resting at Jackson & Barnard funeral home, 233 Larch Street,
Sudbury. Service in St. Andrews’ United Church Monday afternoon at 2
o’clock. Interment in Park Lawn Cemetery, Sudbury.

Note that you have a death date of April 28 but the obit in the Star
does say she died April 26.

Try emailing the Sudbury library here:


and quote:

Ask them if they could please scan and email the article, or
transcribe and email it if it's not too long, or, if they can't, give
them your snail-mail address. It may cost a small amount,
particularly if they have to snail-mail it.
