Passed away peacefully in her 76th year, at home Saturday, December 30th 2006 after a lengthy illness. She was surrounded by her loving family. Wife and constant companion of 52 years to Gordon.

Loving daughter of the late Eugene KELLER and Gertrude ZETTEL of Kitchener, Ontario. Sister of Anne STECHO, Norma McCLENAGHAN, Ralph and Rainer (Ray.) Pre-deceased by Clayton and Clare (Sonny) of Kitchener/Waterloo. Proud nurse and career diplomat's partner, Gerry made houses into homes in Sao Paulo, Chicago, Los Angeles, Ottawa and London (Ontario) where all were welcomed and none were forgotten. Chauffer of miniature ballerinas and aspiring athletes, "Mrs. O's" young family and their Friends grew all too quickly into and out of her well-known 9-passenger station wagons. Hostess of national and international businesspersons, politicians and public servants alike, she travelled the world and never forgot a Friendship forged, regardless of how long it took for the road to lead back.

Snowmobile crash kills boy, 15
Perry OSBORN of Monkton was killed when his snowmobile struck a transport truck.
By Donal O'CONNOR, and Claire NEARY, Sun Media, Thurs., December 20, Mitchell -- A 15-year-old high school student who died in a snowmobile crash yesterday was remembered by his schoolmates as a "wonderful" and "well-liked" person.
Perry OSBORN of R.R.#2 Monkton was killed instantly after the snowmobile he was riding collided with a transport truck north of Mitchell just before noon.
Students and staff at Mitchell District high school, where OSBORN was a Grade 10 student, learned of his death by the afternoon and were met with grief counsellors at the school.
"We're grieving the loss of a wonderful young man who was well-liked by his teachers and peers," school principal Jodie BAKER said.
"Our condolences go out to the family and Friends," said BAKER who expressed her own concern for students' safety during the Christmas holidays.
Counselling will be available at the school for the rest of the week. The school will try to maintain normalcy over the next few days prior to the Christmas break, BAKER said.
OSBORN was heading home from school when his snowmobile came off a snowmobile trail, crossed Perth Line 36 from the south and travelled into the path of the transport truck around 11: 50 a.m., Perth County Ontario Provincial Police said.
The truck was heading west on the paved road north of town near Road 162. The driver was not injured.
OSBORN wasn't the only student who rode a snowmobile to the school. Last week, an Ontario Provincial Police officer visited the school and discussed snowmobile safety.
"There are a few students who ride their snowmobiles to Mitchell high school… (and) they all register with the school," Const. Glen Childerley said.
The trails are well-groomed and maintained, he said.
Students park their snowmobiles behind the school and there's a snowmobile path right next to it, he said.
To drive a snowmobile, the driver must be at least 12 years old, have a snowmobile licence and take a safe snowmobiling course, Childerley said.
The road was closed for about four hours while police investigated.
Police don't expect to lay any charges, they said.

Husband watched as wife hit
Alleged racers face charges after two women are killed.
By Chris DOUCETTE, Sun Media, Mon., October 8, 2007
Derreck DOUGHERTY watched in his car's rearview mirror in horror Saturday as his wife and her best friend were killed in a crash in Brampton that police say was caused by street racers.
The Beeton man is feeling almost as helpless now as he waits to see how the justice system deals with two brothers who were arrested on Hwy. 50 north of Castlemore Rd. as Cynthia (Cindy) DOUGHERTY, 49, lay dead in her Pontiac Grand Am next to Mariarosa (Mar) DALSASS, 44.
"There's so much senseless slaughter out there. How many more innocent people have to die before this stops?" DOUGHERTY asked angrily yesterday, fighting back tears as he recalled his nightmare.
Steven MacHADO, 22, and his brother Brian, 27, are each charged with two counts of criminal negligence causing death.
DOUGHERTY said his wife, a mother of two and a grandmother of two, was driving about 10 car lengths behind him heading to Toronto for a day of shopping with her friend, a high school teacher twice been named the Toronto District Catholic school board's teacher-of-the-year.
Just after noon, DOUGHERTY looked up at his mirror and saw his wife's car smashed apart on the road behind him.
He pulled over and ran to Cindy's aide, but it was too late.
Her car was a mangled wreck in the centre of the highway, surrounded by several other destroyed vehicles. Tires, axles and other debris were strewn everywhere.
"It was the worst moment of my life." DOUGHERTY tried unsuccessfully to free the women.
He then phoned DALSASS' husband, Murray OSBORNE, who raced to the crash believing his wife was only unconscious.
Peel police said it appears the Audi, driven by the younger sibling, pulled onto the gravel shoulder to pass a dump truck and lost control as he re-entered the road.

OLMSTED, Marjorie Kingsland (née SALTER)
(February 25, 1917-June 23, 2007)
Marjorie OLMSTED lived 90 years of what she would have termed an 'ordinary life', but to those of us who knew and loved her, she was extraordinary. She brought joy to others in the simplest way possible - yet few achieve it - she made us laugh. Constantly! Her keen eye combined with quick wit left any situation open to her humorous quips. Marj will always be remembered as kind, gentle, artistic and creative, and most of all, funny. She loved the sound of laughter and even as Alzheimers slowly diminished her memory in later years, with a twinkle in her eye she managed to bring delight to others daily. This beautiful Scottish/Irish lassie with the gorgeous auburn hair and freckles was born in Quebec City on February 25th, 1917 to parents Lillian and Norman SALTER who later moved to Ottawa. At 14, Marj met her childhood sweetheart, Earl OLMSTED, whom she married at 23 and they remained together for 76 years. Not an easy feat when you consider they endured the 2nd World War being apart. (Lt. Col. OLMSTED [Ret.] was overseas for 5 years and is one of the few living survivors of the Normandy Beach landing.) For 2 of the war years Marj attended Kemptville Agricultural College, one of the highlights of her life. This was followed by a life being an 'army wife' with moves from Ottawa to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Fort Churchill, Manitoba, and Madison, Wisconsin accompanied by their four children - Eric, Valerie, Eleanor, and Bruce. She was able to put her home economic studies to good use in her chosen career as a devoted and outstanding Mom. Marjorie lived for many years on Broadview Avenue, Ottawa and in Amberwood Village, Stittsville surrounded by wonderful neighbors. On one of their postings 45 years ago, Marjorie discovered she had breast cancer. Her humour helped her through those dark times and upon waking from major surgery asked her doctor 'Does this mean I can no longer wear double breasted suits?' He encouraged her to find a new hobby so she signed up for art lessons as a form of therapy and found a hidden artistic gift that blossomed into years of painting (often with her beloved dog Lara at her feet). Using mixed media, she would amaze relatives and Friends with her original artwork and poems to suit special occasions. Always a journalist and poet, at the age of 80 Marj wrote an article entitled 'Diary of Breast Cancer.' Not only was it published in the Ottawa Citizen, but it has been widely distributed to thousands of women across Canada to offer them hope and inspiration. Her illness never returned and she lived cancer-free 45 more years! Marjorie's #1 passion was her family and grandchildren - Jana and Pat CLENDON of Calgary, Lani EL- GUEBALY of Vancouver, and Tally, Lindsay, and Geoffrey OSBORNE of Toronto - and many happy reunions took place at Marj and Earl's beloved Red Pine Camp on Golden Lake, Ontario where lifelong Friendships were formed and strengthened each summer for over 65 years. Beauty was an ongoing theme in her poems; Sugarbush Pointe and Red Pine Camp captured for Marjorie the best that camaraderie and nature had to offer. Perfect and personal pieces of Canada. Already sadly missed by her husband, children, and grandchildren, some very special people who will mourn her loss are relatives Noreen LANGDON, Rita SALTER, Ted and Muriel LANGDON, Alan and Waveney SALTER, Doctor Nady EL- GUEBALY, Doctor Ray OSBORNE, Judy KETCHESON, Marilyn EL- GUEBALY, Bill SALTER Jr., Mary and King CHAPMAN, Andrea and Albert PETERS, Doug and Jean SALTER, Red Piners and lifelong Friends in the Ottawa Valley. She was recently predeceased in August 2006 by her first-born son Eric, also by her parents, her brothers Bill and Jack, her niece's son Scotty, many aunts and uncles, fellow grandparents Ahmed and Andree EL- GUEBALY, and nephew Geoffrey LANGDON. In the summer of 2002 Marjorie said, 'soon I will be flying with wings.' We are forever grateful that we had a few more years to enjoy her company before she flew away. Marjorie loved words and here are a few of her own which foreshadowed this occasion.
End of Summer
Touch the rustic railings one more time And gaze at the quiet lake. The leaves are brittle now And rattle in the breeze. Feel the sun, half warm, half chill, And say goodbye to summer. A quiver is in the poplars; A shiver is in the pines, On the lake the waves wear A lacey fringe of winter white And one bird flies Into a fading sky.
