William Blank in Nanaimo BC

Searching for information on William Blank, born 25 Feb 1891 at Departure Bay, BC, married 21 Jun 1916 at North Vancouver BC to Elizabeth Mai Nelson. He was the oldest child of William Blank (17 Nov 1857 Germany - 20 Mar 1917 Gabriola Passage BC) and his wife Mary Eliza Shaw (4 Dec 1856 Sechelt - 11 Aug 1909 Nanaimo). Apparently he was raised at Nanaimo, and his mother was half-Native of the Sechelt band.

I'm wondering if WB died in WWI. In particular I would like to know about his relationship with his wife, and anything about her: Elizabeth Mai was apparently born in "Grayling" Ontario (a place not found in any gazetteer) in 1891. Through another relationship she had a son, Thomas Nelson, in 1923, whose birth certificate said that she had had two births before, and both children had died.
