I’m saddened to pass along news of the passing of Dolly Allen (nee Wilson) on Friday, May 7, 2021.
Into her 90s, Dolly was the kind of member any society would wish for. She excelled in transcribing and indexing materials for the Ottawa Branch of OGS. More than 100 items in the Ottawa Branch library catalogue dating from the 1980s to the 2000s have her name attached. Dolly served on the Branch Council for many years as the librarian and volunteered for Gene-O-Rama and other genealogical events. Until recent years she was a frequent attendee at Ottawa Branch meetings.
She will be interred in the family plot at Ramsayville (Bethany United), a cemetery that has her name attached as a transcriber.
