Newlyweds Die in Tragic Accident

PORT RADIUM, CANADA - Derek and Bev Tilson were very happy to see their middle son Colin marry Mary Ellingson, the third of eleven children born to John and Janice Ellingson of Pincher Creek, AB.

Colin,, 21 and an avid guitar player, and Mary, 23 and an Aeronautical Mechanics student, were married in the LDS chapel in Waterton Lakes National Park on 16 September 2000.

Less than a month later, the joy that many felt on that day turned to sorrow when the couple was killed in a tragic flying accident near Port Radium, NT. Colin was a pilot for Yellowknife-based Summit Air, and it was while he was working that the accident occurred.

Funeral services were held this afternoon in the Pincher Creek Ward meetinghouse, and Bishop Ken Butler conducted the service.
