Ethel Cecelia

January 1, 1929 ~ September 19, 2008.

Ethel laid down her weary head to rest and quietly passed away with her family at her bedside. Leaving to mourn but to cherish her memories is husband William, sister Patricia (Warren). Shields children, Julia (Allan), Robert, David (Elena), Gary (Cindy), grandchildren, Mercedes (John), Robert, Catherine, Stacy (Ryan), Jaime-Lynn (Daniel), Steven, Kyle, Clayton, Alyssa, great grandson Aiden, stepsons Terry, Raymond, nephews, nieces and friends. Ethel humbly devoted her life to her family and the well-being and care-giving of loved ones. She was a shy, sensitive, compassionate woman of few words possessing great strength and integrity. She enjoyed the simple things in life, family gatherings, leisurely walks, shopping, a cup of tea and sweets. You could always rely on Mom (Grama) to lend a helping hand, offer a shoulder to cry on and listen without judging. A celebration of Ethel’s life will be held at Julia’s home 13354 237 A. St. Maple Ridge, Saturday Sept 27, 2- 6 pm. In honor of Mom’s memory please tell your family how much you love and appreciate them. Mom, Grama we love you deeply. You will live on in our hearts and memories forever. God bless you.
