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.
