Here is Signe Back's death info and a ships manifest with her son in 1946. She had been home to Finland.

Signe Ylrika Back 49 died 6 Nov 1948 in Coquitlam, BC, CN. Reg#1948-09-010151 BCA# B13199 GSU# 2032569 This is from Britiah Columbia Death Records on Family Search.

The ship on the manifest was the "Gripsholm" from Gothenburg to Halifax, NS arriving 22 May 1946. It is in 2 pages.
I also found a 3 Jun 1928 arrival with Axel, but the image is so light, you can't see it good. Says Signe Bäck 29 born abt 1899 in Finland. Axel Bäck 28 born abt 1900 in Finland. Sorry, I labelled the images with wrong year, should be 1946.
