Notes for GEORGE ELMER OFFER:

"Summerside Man's marvellous escape on eve of wedding". See newspaper article about accident on the eve of wedding involving Elmer and Bill Roach's borrowed automobile.

Friends in Charlottetown knew Elmer as "Spug", he was active in Sports and managed a hockey team, curled for years and also sponsored a bowling team.

Elmer was a Butter Maker by trade and worked for Perfection Foods in Charlottetown before moving to Summerside in 1937 to open "Ideal Dairy". He ran the dairy at 20 Central Street until his sons bought him out in 1973, Tom and Paul ran it for 5 years, then Paul changed careers and Tom continued to operate the "Dairy" until 1988 when it was sold. The building remained in the family until 1993 when it was sold. Mother continued to live there until 2000 when she moved to an apartment on Linden Avenue.

The building burned on May 1st, 2001 and the next night again caught fire and completely gutted the structure, it was later torn down and is now a vacant lot (Feb. 25, 2003)

Notes for FRANCES DOROTHY ROBERTSON:

Pa worked on the St. Patricks Ranch on Pope Road in St. Eleanors and two men that worked there were Frank McNeill and Arthur Allen. Frances was named after Frank and her middle name was after Art's girlfriend.

Best Man and Matron of Honour were Mr. and Mrs. Robert H. Cameron (Georgie and Spoonie), sister and brother-in-law respectively of the Groom. The bride has been a very polular member of the sales staff of the footwear department of the firm of Sinclair and Stewart, Ltd.

Francis is a Past President of the Kinette Club of Summerside and is a member of the K'ettes (members over 40). Her other interests were curling and most of her adult life has been occupied with raising her two boys and helping in the Office of Ideal Dairy. Her greatest love is "The Shore" as she loves gardening and her vegetables are bountiful each and every year.

Notes for GEORGIE MAUDE OFFER:

Georgie was the Historian of the family and her letter written to paul in 1963 was a tremendous help in researching the family tree. Georgie was also an avid painter and her works hang on almost every family wall. Tom and I always tried to spend Christmas Evening with Georgie and Spoonie and wer travelled to Charlottetown alot through the years to visit with them. They were both so full of happy stories and memories and we loved listening to them. [Offer.fbk.FBC.FBK.FTW]

Notes for ROBERT HAROLD CAMERON:

"Spooney" worked at the Post Office in Charlottetown, they lived on Water Street in an apartment over the original Seaman's bottling plant. Tom and I visited them often, and most definitely at Christmas. We were living in Truro at the time of Georgies passing and could not come home as Jay was just 2 months old and had already spent 19 days in the IWK, so we opted not to come home for the funeral.

See the letter on file that Georgie wrote to Paul in 1963 describing Elders and Friends.

Spooney loved to fish and so did Georgie and they spent many an afternoon enjoying their hobby. They also spent many days helping to build "the cottage" at Clinton.[Offer.fbk.FBC.FBK.FTW]
