As the sun rose on May 27, 2020, Ethel passed away at the glorious age of 95. She is reunited with her husband Dave (2018), children Rose (1952) and Neil (2015).
Celebrating her memory are son Ron (Joanne), daughter Judy (Len), Daughter-in- law Leona, foster son Herbie (Minnie); six grandchildren Christopher (Carley), Amanda (Dustin), Kendra, Evan (Haylea), Jared, Chantelle (Dillin); nine great grandchildren; her beloved sister-in-law Audrey Thompson; and many nieces, nephews and wonderful friends.
Ethel loved a house filled with friends and family and lots of activity. Grandchildren fondly remember the after dinner games of cards and the long walks in nature. With a mind for numbers, Ethel loved playing Bridge. Sports were a passion, especially curling, golfing and bowling. As a couple, Dave and Ethel loved square dancing and formed many life long friendships. Favourite places were their lake cottage at Wabamun and winters spent in Arizona.
A family celebration to honour Ethel’s life will take place at a future date.
