O'BRIAN, Edith Jean (née BEATTY)
(October 5, 1919-July 1st, 2008)
In Toronto at the Salvation Army Meighen Manor Alzheimer and Dementia wing, in her 89th year. Edie was pre-deceased last year by her beloved husband of 65 years, Peter, and previously by her twin brother Richard BEATTY, her sisters Ottilie BEATTY and Graeme RENGERS, and her lifelong Friends Marcia WOOD and Joy MacDONALD. She is dearly missed by her sister Barbara SPEARS, her sons John St. George O'BRIAN (Helen) and Peter Beatty O'BRIAN (Carolyn BENNETT,) her grandchildren Melanie, Amy, Meghan, Jack and Ben (all O'BRIAN) who knew and loved her as 'Dede', her nephew Douglas SPEARS, and her nieces Jean PODOLSKY (George,) Buffy ASH (Bill,) and Kit RENGERS. She is also remembered with love by her brothers-in-law, James O'BRIAN (Anne) and Liam O'BRIAN (Barbara). Edie grew up in Toronto on Cottingham Street and Ava Crescent, the third daughter of lawyer Percy BEATTY (Fraser and Beatty) and Marjorie. She attended Bishop Stachan School and Hatfield Hall and spent summers at Nares Inlet, Georgian Bay, where she first met Peter in 1936. During World War 2, she sailed to England to join 'Pete', who was serving overseas in the Royal Air Force, and they were married in London at Saint Martin-in-the-Fields in December, 1941, returning to Toronto in 1959. During the War she served with the Red Cross. She later volunteered for many years with the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire at Dixon Hall in Toronto. She delighted in her family life, her dogs, Chelsea, Hollywood and Marley, long country walks and blueberry picking by canoe in the Georgian Bay. She was fiercely loyal and supportive to those she loved, and always sided with the 'underdog'. Edie's family is deeply grateful to the Meighen Manor for the loving care provided by its dedicated staff. She is sadly missed by her devoted care-giver, friend and daily companion, Merlidita DE VERA, who faithfully maintained her dignity, confidence and humour during her decline from Alzheimer disease. A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, July 9th at 2 p.m. in the Chapel of St. James the-Less Cemetery, 635 Parliament Street, Toronto. Donations may be made to the Canadian Alzhiemer Society or Salvation Army, Meighen Manor.

KUTSCHENREITER, Karl Jr.
Karl KUTSCHENREITER, Jr. was born on January 9, 1950 in Pichling, Austria. He was the first-born child of Juliana (AMENT) and Karl KUTSCHENREITER. A couple of years later the family grew with the addition of his little sister Wilma. He lived in Austria until May 25, 1955 when Julie, Karl Jr. and Wilma travelled to Canada by boat to Montreal and then by train to Toronto where they joined Karl Sr. who had been in Toronto making it possible for the rest of the family to join him.
The KUTSCHENREITERs lived in Toronto from 1955-1959 at which time they moved to Shrigley; by December of 1959 they moved to the family farm on Highway 10.
Karl attended public school at S.S.#4 at Victoria Corners. He attended the Dundalk High School and Grey Highlands Secondary School. Karl attended Humber College and studied as a heavy equipment diesel mechanic - an education that he used for the rest of his working years.
He had three children: Kyle, Shannon and Tanya.
Karl settled on his property at R.R.#3 Flesherton around 1989, where he lived until his death.
Karl held various jobs, which included: heavy equipment operator, equipment repair, mechanic, welder, pond builder and truck driver. Karl was a man that could operate anything with a diesel engine. He was a kid that never grew up - always playing with his toys in the dirt.
He will be remembered by others for his young "Elvis" hair, his motorcycle days and his willingness to help a friend out no matter what. Karl enjoyed being with Friends in the outdoors, both hunting and fishing.
Karl KUTSCHENREITER Jr. passed away at Centre Grey Hospital in Markdale on February 12, 2008.
Minister was Greg GOHEEN (nephew;) Assistant Minister was Ken McGOWAN; Eulogy was given by Tim GOHEEN (nephew.)
