Barrie, Laura, Karen, all the wonderful times spent with your mom my aunt Ethel and your dad uncle Ken. Yes Ethel was an amazing women forging ahead, a working mom who loved her job outside the home as much as her family. The wonderful Christmas and the Stanfield pajamas every Christmas. The long trek your family made to visit us. It was always magical when your family came and then we got to visit your family in Toronto.
Thank you for sharing your mom and dad and yourselves with us.
I think Ethel is the last of the Hewitt, Archer union.

I have known my sister-in-law, Ethel, for more than 80 years. We met as teenagers and together were young mothers raising our children on Donside Drive. Being with Ethel was never dull. I remember the day we decided to set fire to the field across from our homes. We wanted to see how well the grass would burn. It burned very well, got out of our control, and resulted in a call to the fire department. Ethel loved a good time. She was the witch that came out of the basement on Halloween. All our kids remember that. After the Edwards moved from Donside, 88 Silvio became our destination every Christmas Eve. I thank Ethel for a lifetime of memories, through all the highs and lows that come with a life long lived. I will miss you, Ethel. You were the thread that held the fabric of the family together. My deepest condolences to Karen, Barry, and Laura.

Seeing a picture of my Aunt Ethel sitting in her favorite chair reminded me of the times I would visit with her and my cousins Karen, Barry and Laura and if there was a Blue Jays game on sure enough Aunt Ethel would be watching it. I remember she had the Blue Jays schedule and knew who they were playing and a win would be a happy moment. My cousin Barry and I a few weeks ago drove over to his past residence on Donside Dr, and he reminded me where our grandparents use to live and some of our aunts and uncles. Brought back memories and I vividly remembered as a kid enjoying a cherry pie that Aunt Ethel baked harvesting cherries from the tree in the backyard. During one of my visits as a kid I was given a book Wild Horse Mesa by Zane Gray and it might be the reason I still enjoy western novels . A memory I will cherish is the smile on her face when I told her during a recent visit she was my favorite aunt and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to mention that fact to her when I did

Ethel will be greatly missed by her immediate and extended family. She was a strong, independent woman and generous beyond measure. Some would say that 94 years is a long time, but those of us who knew her would say it was still not long enough. My sincere condolences to Karen and George, Barry, Laura, and all Ethel's grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

You will be missed. You always had a story to share and you had all the history of the family. There was always something happening at your home. When we would pull up in our car you always came out to the porch to great us because everyone was always welcome in your home.
Thinking of your and your family at this time.

So many fond memories that I have to look back on, Westport, 99 Donside, the cottage, Christmas. So many smiles and laughs. Aunt Ethel was such a strong woman she will be missed but never forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.
