Surnames: Melcher, Moser
Stella Emily Moser was b. 1862, IL, USA. She married Elbert Melcher (b. 1858, WI, USA) and moved to Czar, Alberta. Elbert d. 1930 in Czar, Alberta. Stella died 1931 but family doesn't know where.

I'm new to researching in Alberta. Where can I look up her death? We surmise it was in Czar since she died just one year after her husband. Haven't been able to find an Alberta Death Index that is searchable on the web. Any help appreciated.
