It is with much sadness and grief, but a lifetime of warm memories, that daughter Kimberly Bruce (David) and son Kurt Osborne (Lynn) share this difficult news. Mom passed away peacefully, surrounded by family in her 77th year on June 10, 2021 after a brave battle with lung cancer. Mom was a devoted Nana to Mikayla and Kieran and was predeceased by our Dad, Edward Osborne (2015).
Amongst those mourning with us is Ed Moss, her husband of over 4 years, her sister Bernice (Glynn) Bartlett and her dear friend M.C. Leaver, with whom she shared a long friendship after graduating University as mature students. Also grieving is her sister-in-law Leona Thornhill, widow of Mom's brother Bert.
Mom was a modest, one-of-a-kind lady, whose passions besides family and friends included gardening, poetry, golf, walking the beaches in Florida, nature & nature photography. Her poetry was published and she won awards for many of these hobbies. To say Mom was a go-getter who barely slowed down would be a tremendous understatement. She will be greatly missed.
A private family funeral will take place. Condolences available at the Newcastle Funeral Home website. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Canadian Cancer Society.
