Obituary of DALLER, Kathleen (Kate) Margaret of Ottawa, ON

Posted by on March 3, 2019

Kate Daller
June 16, 1948 – Feb 21, 2019

  

Born in Vancouver, Kate was the first child to Trevor and Eileen Horsley, followed by a brother (Mark) and sister (Susan). Trevor, being a mining engineer, later brought the family to live in Cassiar, northern BC—now a ghost town following the mine’s closure.

Kate moved with her family to Toronto as a teenager, choosing to remain once her parents returned to Vancouver. She began working in the music and record industry as a secretary at RCA Records, and then as a public relations specialist for A & M Records. During this time she met her eventual husband Frank at a music industry function in Regina, SK.

After their marriage, Kate became a professional entertainment writer, publishing regularly in the Toronto Star and Starweek magazine among others, writing concert reviews, features and interviews with various prominent artists, entertainers, and public figures.

Two children followed, Julian and Miguel, and the family eventually moved to the Ottawa area. While living near Moose Creek, ON, Kate decided to earn a Social Service Worker diploma from St. Lawrence College at age 50. This opened up a new career in the school system, reflecting her compassion for youth with special needs, and fostered some special friendships that survived her retirement.

After earning her diploma, Kate’s interest in and talent for painting and drawing began to blossom. Following the family’s move to Ottawa in 2002, she became a prolific artist and also joined Arteast, an art collective in which she found a deep sense of community and kinship. Her works have been sold, commissioned, and honoured with special recognition and awards at juried exhibits at the Shenkman Arts Centre. Her art style during her last years was inspired both by her deep love of nature, and the people closest to her.

Beloved by her grandchildren Senna and Noah, and her extended family and friends, Kate will be remembered for her humility, her endless compassion, and her late-life participation in ukulele jam sessions.

A remembrance event will be held on March 30, 2019. Any donations in remembrance, or proceeds of the sale of some remaining paintings, should go to Child Haven Int’l, a locally-based charity that she and the family support. www.childhaven.ca

Obituary of YOUNG, Patricia Bernadette (Geary) – Ottawa, Ontario

Posted by on February 25, 2019

After a courageous battle with cancer Patricia Bernadette (Geary) Young passed away in Ottawa on Saturday 16 February, 2019 at the age of 59.  Since her diagnosis, she maintained her optimistic outlook and was determined to remain at home, though her last few days were spent in hospital surrounded by her family.  Born in Toronto to the late Jack and Geraldine Geary, Bernadette was beloved wife of 39 years of Bill Young; mother to daughters, Christina (Matt Dale), Laurie (Dan Preece) and Colleen (Matt O’Neil); Nana to granddaughters, Dayna and Avery; dear sister to Jim (Pat) and Mary Lou, and the late Ellen, D’Arcy (Sandy), and Barbara, her twin.  Bernie was also a cherished sister-in-law, cousin and aunt, enjoying any chance to be with her large extended family.

Bernadette enrolled in nursing after high school but set that dream aside to prepare for the impending arrival of her first born.  Two more daughters came along and completely filled her time until the youngest started school.  At this point, her need to care for others had to find an outlet.  After picking up additional high school credits, while still a full-time mom, she re-enrolled in the nursing program, graduated and started a second career caring for the elderly at two local facilities.  Her interest and involvement in health care remained keen to the end, as she often conferred with and offered advice to the home-care and hospital nurses on the subject of her own care.  She showed great interest in how things had changed since she left the profession a few years ago.

After family, friends and career, Bernadette had two other loves: music and growing things.  Her collection of LPs, cassettes and CDs was without equal.  And the flora, both inside and outside her house, was prodigious.

Bernadette’s family would like to extend their sincere gratitude and appreciation to the home-care nurses of Saint Elizabeth’s Health Care, and the staff at both the Ottawa General Hospital and Winchester District Memorial Hospital, for their dedication and kindness.

Bernadette was the force that pulled us together, and true to form, she continues to be that force.  A celebration of Bernadette’s life will take place at the Carleton Golf and Yacht Club at 6627 Marina Drive, Manotick, Ontario on Saturday 9 March 2019.  In accordance with her wishes there will be food, drink and her favourite music.  It was also her wish that neither the event nor the attire be sombre.  Family and friends are welcome to drop by between 2:00 PM and 6:00 PM, with remembrances taking place at 3:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Ottawa Hospital Foundation / Ottawa Hospital Cancer Centre, the Saint Elizabeth Foundation’s End of Life care program or the Winchester District Memorial Hospital would be most welcome.

Obituary of Rouleau, Marc

Posted by on January 26, 2019

Marc Rouleau

 

March 10, 1941—January 22, 2019

After a life full of adventure, community service and family devotion we lost our amazing father and husband, Marc. Born in Ottawa 77 years ago, Marc was the loving husband of Judy (Parent) and treasured father of Brent (Susie), Lisa (Corey) and Chantal (Brant) and adored grandfather to Melissa, Sabrina, Brayden, Cailyn, Ryder and Jack. He is also survived by brothers Mike and Charles, sisters Claudette, Louise, Sue, Gale, Patsy, Maggie, Rollande, Réjeanne and the late Jocelyne.  Marc married Judy in Ottawa but started his long and successful radio advertising career in Brockville. They quickly integrated into the community through the Kinsmen Club and where they met and formed numerous lifelong friendships. Marc’s radio career advanced quickly and he soon moved his young family back to Ottawa where he worked for many years at the French-language CJRC radio station. While climbing the ranks of the radio executive world, Marc pursued his passion for coaching hockey and ringette in Blackburn Hamlet. Over the course of a long coaching career he was able to coach all of his children. His other passion for golf allowed him and Judy to spend many delightful days on courses all over the region. Eventually, Marc left the radio business to become a successful entrepreneur when he created Promarc Promotions. Marc always wanted to contribute to his community. He joined the Ottawa-Gloucester Sports Club to promote and support amateur sports where he once again formed so many more dear and lasting friendships. As Club President he was able to initiate countless events, tournaments and fundraising activities. He was well-known for his impeccable three-piece suits, his love for the Habs, his exquisite and elegant public speaking and his huge heart. In retirement, when Marc did not have a game of golf lined up, he put his impressive carpentry skills to use around the house and spent time refining his lesser-known but remarkable drawing skills. Later in life, Marc pursued and attained a special goal to acquire his CPGA Professional Golfer qualifications. Through it all, he devoted countless hours and so much love to Judy, his children and grandchildren, often marvelling and beaming with pride at their every achievement and accomplishments in sports or life in general. The family extends their deepest appreciation to the ICU staff at the General Hospital for their commitment to Marc’s care.  Relatives and friends are invited to the Heritage Funeral Complex, 1250 Trim Road to pay their respects to the family on Monday, January 28, 2019, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.  A celebration of Marc’s life will then be held in the Heritage Funeral Complex chapel at 4 p.m. with a reception to follow Friends and family are welcome to make a contribution to the Ottawa Heart Institute in memoriam.

Robert, aka Bob/Doc, was born an only child at the Norfolk General Hospital in Simcoe, Ontario on March 17, 1946.  He is survived by many cousins, including Dale Coles who was like a brother growing up.  He is predeceased by his father Henry Ellis Coles (January 1, 1923 Port Dover, Ontario – April 16, 2008 Calgary, Alberta), his mother Edith (Albert) Coles (March 6, 1920 Moosehorn, Manitoba – March 12, 2009 Calgary, Alberta), his maternal grandparents Fred Albert and Christina Margaret Aitken and paternal grandparents Charles Elgin Coles and Ethel Charlton.

Bob grew up in Port Rowan, Norfolk County, moving to Cambridge (Galt), Ontario in 1957. His father Henry Coles served in WWII as sergeant in B Company of the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps in charge of radiator and tinsmith division of the vehicle maintenance crews from 1942-1946.  Henry then went on to established North End Radiator Service in 1959.   Safe to say this was the birth place of Bob’s lifelong love affair with cars, especially Corvettes (although his first car was a robin blue convertible 1955 Cadillac). 

After graduating with honours from Galt Collegiate Institute and Vocational School in 1965 (where he pitched for the baseball team, was on the basketball team, student council and many other activities), he was accepted to the College of Optometry of Ontario in Toronto.  In 1967 the school moved to Waterloo and became the University of Waterloo School of Optometry, where he continued his studies.

After four years of dating through school, Bob (age 22) married Gisela Oehne (age 20) of Preston, Ontario in June 1968. Bob graduated May 1969 with a Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree. Together Bob and Gisela set up his first practice after graduation at 111 Wellington Street in Preston, Ontario.  

‘Go West Young Man’.  And so he did…  They sold their practice and moved to Calgary, Alberta in July 1972 to join Dr. Garth Mann at the Bonavista Eye Clinic.  Staying at the then Siesta Inn for this first trip, Bob wandered next door to check out Ranchman’s Cookhouse and Dancehall, which had just opened months prior in April 1972.  It is then and there a friendship with Harris Dvorkin, one of the two Ranchman’s co-founders, was forged. Bob’s love of a Wild West country lifestyle and his entrepreneurial spirit soon made this not only his Calgary Stampede home base, but an office of sorts through his career.  (Mr. Dvorkin passed on April 20, 2017- just one week before Ranchman’s 45th anniversary). 

Bob and Gisela’s first daughter Christine Anne arrived in 1973, their second daughter Melissa Marie in 1975 and first son Jonathan Robert in 1977.  Bob and Gisela were divorced in 1979. 

Gone their separate ways, Gisela brought Joshua in to the world in 1982. Giving him the Coles name, he became one of the four “Coles Kids”.  Bob moved to Phoenix, Arizona from 1983 to 1987 with his second wife Carol and her teenage children Janet and Mark.  Returning to Calgary, Bob and Carol were separated in the early 90s and later divorced.  

Bob lived the rest of his years with his Good Hearted Woman, life and business partner Linda Babuik.  They made many memories of shared interests such as travel (favourites included Hawaii and Las Vegas), country music concerts, rodeos (including of course The Stampede but especially the NFR in Vegas) and their camp ‘homestead’ at Riverbend in Okotoks.  Linda’s daughters Tricia and Keri, together with Keri’s husband Jim and their children Trevor and Taylor (and Taylor’s son Sawyer), added greatly to the support and memories throughout these years. 

His children wish to remember him as the smart witted, extremely intelligent, entrepreneurial, musically talented and charismatic person he was. He was an avid car fan, having owned more than two dozen Corvettes over his lifetime and no stranger to twisting a wrench here or there. He was musically inclined, playing guitar, banjo and singing. He was a quick wit and at times a prankster.  He had a love for snakeskin cowboy boots, fishing (including Ice fishing), Disneyland, Canadian Tire, billiards of all sorts, Colt cigars, Vegas, Banff, Elvis worthy jewelry, dry roasted peanuts, fur coats (he has a long family line of fur trappers, including pioneering life long employees of the Hudson Bay Company), steak dinners, egg salad sandwiches, Stetson hats, big belt buckles, cooking, the country lifestyle and Christmas decorating among other things.  He was certainly the only optometrist wearing pressed black Wranglers, cowboy boots and a Stetson with his lab coat.

In keeping with his wishes, there will be no formal service.  His children gathered in Banff for a tribute the Doc would be proud of.  The Man.  The Myth.  The Legend.  He was one of a kind.

Won and lost some fights

Highs and lows, that’s the way it goes

It ain’t always sweet tea

Lovin’, runnin’, son of a gun, like an old outlaw

But ain’t that country”  -The Cadillac Three
