death dates

Irwin,Fort Saskatchewan,after 1911

I am looking for death dates for Mary Irwin and her son Hugh Irwin who were in the 1911 census on Sect 22 Township 54 Range 22. Mary was listed as 98 years old but I think her age was about 91 years. By chance if a death date for Mary and Hugh can be found would there be a chance an obit could be found for each of them?
Mary was born in Ireland to Hugh McCabe and Margaret Elliott and Hugh was born to Robert Irwin and Mary Ann McCabe in Ireland also. Hugh was born about 1844.

Hope someone can help me.
