KERSELL, Marnie (née RUTHERFORD)
Marnie KERSELL was born on November 11, 1926. Her parents were Thomas Warriner RUTHERFORD and Rosalind Jane WITTON. Marnie had two sisters, Gay KIMPEL and Jane HANSULD. She grew up in a happy home on Lansdowne Rd. in Galt and met and fell in love with her future husband, George, at Galt Collegiate. They were married for 58 years and shared many interests and Friends. They were truly partners for life.
Marnie was loved, respected and admired by her three daughters, Mary, (Graham CALDWELL,) Jane (David SPARLING) and Ann (Paul RIDDELL, deceased.) She had a very close and warm relationship with her grandchildren, Anna and Scott Caldwell, Beth, Laura, Julie and Cam Sparling and Christine, Grace and Jimmy Riddell.
Her family recognized and appreciated Marnie's many talents and accomplishments. She was an extraordinary woman and, like so many women of her generation, she was a strong, independent thinker, a problem solver and a person who was never daunted by the task at hand.
She was a Phys. Ed. grad from the University of Toronto and was a talented athlete. She was an avid curler at the Galt Curling Club for many years and won the Ontario Mixed Curling Championship in 1962 and the Ladies' Tankard in 1965. Although she enjoyed all sports, golf was her passion. Over the years, she won 24 club championships both here, at the Galt Country Club, and in Florida. She was a member of the four person Ontario Senior Ladies' Team, which won the National Championship in Victoria in 1993. During her golfing career, Marnie had 9 holes-in-one, and shot her age three times. Marnie loved family time and especially enjoyed summers on Georgian Bay. She spent her youth cottaging at Pointe au Baril and later she, George and Gay and Doug KIMPEL built a cottage just up the shore on an island at Bayfield Inlet. Marnie never lost her enthusiasm for swimming, diving, canoeing, blueberrying and fishing. She and George also loved their winters in Florida and entertained many family members and Friends there over the years.
Marnie was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. She led a happy, fulfilled life. She died on June 19, 2008. It was very hard for us to let her go, and we will miss her greatly.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Epilepsy Ontario, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario or the charity of one's choice would be appreciated.
Memorial visitation will be held on Sunday, June 22, 2008 from 2-4 p.m. at Coutts Funeral Home, 96 St. Andrews Street, Cambridge.

Activist remembered as leader
By John BARBER, Page A16
Federal New Democratic Party Leader Jack Layton and Mayor David Miller took time yesterday to offer glowing eulogies for activist and politician Allan SPARROW, who died of cancer Wednesday in London, Ontario, at 63.
Mr. Layton praised Mr. SPARROW as "a good friend, mentor and leader" who "inspired a generation of reform-minded progressives with ahead-of-his-time thinking on environment issues."
To Mr. Miller, Mr. SPARROW was the unbidden angel who organized a successful grassroots movement to halt construction of a bridge to the island airport - the defining issue of the election that brought him to power in 2003.
"Allan SPARROW was a tireless crusader who believed passionately in everything he did," the mayor said, describing his career as "an inspiration to all those who believe in the potential of Toronto."
As a downtown alderman in the 1970s, Mr. SPARROW was a driving force of the reform council led by former mayor David Crombie. But just as often he was far ahead of the pack, championing gay rights and police accountability at a time when most considered the mere mention of such issues to be an act of political suicide.
Despite his popularity, Mr. SPARROW left politics in 1980 to let George HYSLOP, Toronto's first gay candidate for council, run in his place.
He returned to the business world as a consultant specializing in information technology, but threw himself into public life once again after he and his wife, Susan, moved to the Toronto Islands and found themselves living below the flight path of a massively expanded airport.
Having stopped the bridge but not the airport, the SPARROWs moved to Stratford, Ontario, last year.
