I am posting this as an aide to other genealogists.
This is an obit of a person that has died in Canada.
THIS IS NOT a relative of mine.
OESTERLE: It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Gerhard "Gerry" Oesterle on Monday, August 20, 2007 at the age of 69. He left us suddenly but was surrounded by friends and family at the cabin in Sorrento, B.C. Survived by his loving wife Margaret; his daughters Susan Oesterle and Wendy (Kelly) Willis; step children, Edward Speitelsbach, Monika (Nelson) Jatel, and Karin Speitelsbach; and grandchildren Liam and Emma Willis. He was employed with BC Hydro for 27 years where he worked as a lineman and cableman. In his retirement he moved to Kelowna to enjoy golfing, dancing, friends and family. He will be deeply missed by many. Pre-deceased by his first wife Helen Oesterle in 1998, after 34 years of marriage.
