Tragic Loss of a GUPA Member

News

GUPA is sad to announce that one of our own GUPA members has suddenly passed away. Rosie O’Brien had set out for a cross-country road trip with her dog Oreo when she was involved in a head-on collision near Dryden Ontario at 10am on Monday morning. Although her dog Oreo survived, Rosie was killed instantly upon impact.

Over the past year Rosie had really gotten into ultimate, playing in the Gupa (Disc Pigs), WODS (Team Fun), and Perpetual Motion (A-Team) leagues, as well as subbing for a team in the RIM league (I think it was Vol-de-Nuit). She even played in the London Calling tourney a few weeks ago. She was really easy to get along with, and great to play with – never a negative comment and always showing a cheerful smile.

The visitation and funeral are tentatively set to be held in Mississauga at the Turner and Porter funeral home (2180 Hurontario).

Visitation: Sunday Aug 22, 2-4, 7-9

Service: Monday Aug 23, 3:30pm (Updated)

Our hearts go out to Rosie’s family and friends
