Ethel Marion (Moore) Harris

January 4, 1931April 23, 2021

Ethel was born in Cranbrook and grew up in New Westminster, BC. She married Bert in 1949 and remained a Comox Valley resident for the rest of her life. Bert and Ethel were married 66 years.

Ethel did things her way.

Ethel Harris leaves behind her pride and joy; a family of makers, adventurers, travelers, lovers of nature - especially the little tiny things, story tellers and stargazers. People who grow food and preserve it and can "make do." People who stand up straight and can talk to anyone and look them in the eye. Who always have time for a child. She taught us, "the harder you work, the luckier you get."

She is survived by 5 children Nancy (Norman) Emery, Pat (Ed) Yakichuk, Rick (Marilyn) Harris, Dianne (Dennis) Webber, Barb (Todd) Nowicki, 12 grandchildren Kathy (Jim) Barker, Leanne (Steve) Madill, Christina Emery, Eva Wydenes, Jeff (Allison) Smith, Brian (Christy) Smith, Mike (Sarah) Harris, Shelly (Brent) Jaskela, Evan (Shawna) Webber, Clayton (Alissa) Webber, Derek (Camilla) Moul, Wade (Mia) Moul, 28 great grandchildren and 13 great great grandchildren.

We are the mark she left on this world.

Ethel passed away just as she would have liked. From old age, peacefully in her sleep.

Our sincere gratitude to the excellent staff at Cumberland Lodge, for your compassionate care and the "extra" that you gave her during Covid.

Family exchange visits were such fun times. When us kids werereally young there were visits back and forth between The houses. Kids everywhere!. My little iron single bed houses 3 of us.
Huge meals around a table holding 4 adults and anywhere from 7 to 9 kids..maybe more depending on the year.
I remember how so very happy my mom was when she told me of the trip she and Auntie Ethel were planning..they had such an amazing time together.
All four parents have now passed. I hope they have met up again and are dancing up a storm as they did all those years ago.
(Mom said Ethel danced better with my dad...and that she loved dancing with Uncle Bert)
I know I'm rambling, but I loved Auntie Ethel. I wish I had been able to visit her more. She is in my heart, right next to Uncle Bert, momma and daddy.
