14th: OCR

Don't you just love spell checkers and OCR text?
I'm working my way through the National Library of Australia's newspapers piecing together the family of the aforementioned Robert and Janet (AINSLIE) FAIRBAIRN, (and distentangling their grandson George from the George A of the Marrickville baker FAIRBAIRNs that several people seem to have confused the family with) and came across this death notice which says in part:

... my wife Vera Fairbairn who derailed this life ...

I've corrected it to the rather more prosaic "departed this life" that it actually reads.
