Help Return Silver Cross Medail to Descendants of Eviva Carr

Recently this Silver Cross medal was found and the finder wants to return it to family.  The medal is engraved with the name S.J. Carr and the service number F2079. 

The medal was presented to Eviva Carr of Manassette Lake, Guysborough County, Nova Scotia whose son Samuel James Carr died on May 23, 1944 in Italy.

The Canadian Virtual War Memorial shows that Carr, a private, served with the West Nova Scotia Regiment. 

An obituary published in The Chronicle Herald indicates Eviva Carr died in 1980. She had several relatives, including four daughters and 21 grandchildren.
