Rosaleen Dickson, an editor of THE EQUITY for more than 30 years, has died in Ottawa at the age of 96.
She and her husband, David, purchased THE EQUITY in 1953 and founded Pontiac Printshop Ltd., a printing and publishing business in Shawville, where they raised their six children.
As the editor of THE EQUITY , Mrs. Dickson was an outspoken presence in Pontiac County, both through the pages of the newspaper and her own engagement in community life. She managed a Shawville hockey team, started a Brownies pack, and taught children how to square dance on horseback. As the first woman to sit on Shawville town council, she put her energies into such projects as revamping the town water system, the construction of seniors’ residences and turning the land around Shawville’s Mill Dam into a park.
