    Lynn and family, thinking of you at this difficult time. We have many wonderful memories of Ethel, driving around looking at Christmas lights, an almost visit to my aunt in Montreal and subsequent visit to her sister and great conversations over numerous glasses of red wine. She will be missed and fondly remembered.

  • Frances Kirkpatrick says:

    Many years ago I recall several enjoyable games of golf up at Gallagher’s with Ethel and Erwin; they seemed to be able to always secure the best tee times and I was fortunate enough to have the pleasure of joining them on many occasions. They were very lovely folks, Ethel was always so bright, good humored and friendly; lovely to know.
    I am sure your family has many wonderful heartfelt memories. Frances Kirkpatrick

    We were very saddened to hear of Ethel’s passing. She was always such a pleasure to have at our family gatherings, such a great sense of humor and always such a pleasure to be around. She will truly be missed by all of us.

  • Joy & Tracee @ Okanagan Mental Health Services Soc says:

    So sorry to hear of our loss of this most lovely lady, Ethel! We will truly miss her! She was a very happy person who was full of life and always had a smile and big hug for us. Her business was always done in person at our office where we often had lengthy conversations.
