OSBORNE, Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS)
Jean Winnifred (EDWARDS) OSBORNE passed away on January 1, 2006 in Grey Bruce Health Centre, Markdale, after a brief but courageous battle with cancer.
Jean was born August 29, 1929 to Bert and Emily EDWARDS, who had just immigrated from England to Canada, finally landing in Dundalk. Jean grew up in Dundalk. She was an excellent student and athlete and graduated at a very young age. Then Jean went to work at the Bank of Commerce (C.I.B.C.) in Dundalk.
She met and married her life partner, Dallas OSBORNE, in June 1949, a marriage that lasted over 50 years. Through the years Jean and Dallas raised their four children, Lynda, Steve, Doug and Shelly, while Jean continued to work at the bank. Jean was a kind and caring mother as well as grandmother and then great-grandmother.
Nothing to do with family or at her work was too much for her to handle. She enjoyed the many family get-togethers at the cottage at Wasaga Beach.
On January 31, 1987, Jean officially retired after 32 faithful years at the bank. She had many, many Friends in the community.
Later, Jean and Dallas left Dundalk and moved to Barrie for a few short years, then they both retired to Brewsters Lake, Singhampton. After the passing of Dallas, Jean moved to Markdale. She enjoyed her time there, and met many new Friends.
Through the years Jean and Dallas attended services at Erskine Presbyterian Church, Mount Pleasant Missionary Church, and then later Jean attended as many services as she could at the Eugenia United Church.
Left to mourn Jean are her four children, Lynda (Hans) MUELLER, Steve (Brenda) OSBORNE, Doug (Delores) OSBORNE, and Shelly LAMBERT, ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Also brothers, Jack (Mary) EDWARDS and Peter (Elske) EDWARDS, as well as sisters-in-law Donna WILLIAMS and Marie (Barry) ADAM/ADAMS.
Funeral services were held at the McMillan Jack Funeral Home on Wednesday, January 4.
Patrick HALFERTY, Jean's friend and pastor for some years ably conducted the service that would have pleased Jean very much. Her daughter Lynda played the hymn "Hope" on the piano during the service.
The pallbearers were Chris OSBORNE, Gene MATTHEWS (grand_sons,) Doug OSBORNE, Cameron EDWARDS, Darryl GREEN (nephews,) and Hans MUELLER (son-in-law.) Flowerbearers were grandchildren, interment was held in Dundalk Cemetery following the service. A lovely luncheon was served to family and Friends at the Erskine Presbyterian Church by their ladies group.
The family once again, appreciated everyone's kind words, prayers and support during this difficult time. Mother is and will be truly missed by her family and Friends.

MATTHEWS, Velma
In loving memory of a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother, Velma MATTHEWS, who was taken so suddenly 1 year ago March 18, One precious to our hearts is gone,
The voice we loved is still,
The place made vacant in our lives,
Can never more be filled.
Always a thought and many a tear,
For one we miss and loved so dear,
The sudden way you had to die,
We always remember and wonder why,
No one knows the sorrow we share,
When the family meets and you are not there,
We hold our tears when we speak you name,
But the ache in our hearts remains the same.
Sadly missed and never forgotten by husband Grant and family.

Christina commenced her high school teaching career in Ridgetown, Ontario where she taught Latin and Greek. She subsequently spent most of her 41 years as a teacher in Hamilton, where she taught at Westdale, Delta and Barton Secondary Schools. As a specialist Christina taught Classics, Physical Health and Education, Guidance and Counseling and Commercial, in addition to coaching many high school sport teams. Her dedication to her profession and her students was indicated by her absence from work for only five days in her teaching career, four of them as a result of a broken leg. Christina loved to travel to all parts of the globe and to spend time with her nieces and nephews, enduring endless hours at the card table with them. In recent years the ravages of Alzheimer's Disease took its toll on Christina's great energy and memory. The staff at Central Park Lodge, 123 Spadina Road, Toronto were extremely caring in looking after Christina during the past five years. Special mention should be made of Carol, Jannis and Blossom for their total compassion and care for Christina.
