WILSON, ETHEL MAUD (nee Short)
Ethel passed away peacefully at Idlewyld Manor on Wednesday December 9th, in her 100th year. Ethel is now with her beloved husband Oliver (1998). She had a son Brian (Jane), and a daughter Kay (George Johnston, 2016), who will miss her dearly. Ethel leaves behind her five grandsons Todd (Jodie), Scott (1987), Cory, Tim (Laura) and Brent (Lesley). She was a great grandma to Tyler, Michael, Daniel and Amy, and a great great grandma to Alyvia. Also mourning her loss is her brothers and sisters, and several nieces and nephews. Ethel was an avid Ticat’s fan with season tickets for many years and enjoyed going to the grey cup games with her friends or grandsons. Ethel worked at Wendy’s Upper James for many years and was the oldest Wendy’s employee. Due to health reasons, Ethel had to retire at the age of 97. She enjoyed working and made many friends there and enjoyed talking to the customers about the Ticat’s or just about life in general. The family would like to thank the staff at Idlewyld (Creekside) for all their kind care they gave to Ethel and to her many family and friends for their many visits and phone calls. Special thanks to Bette and Gord Walters for being good neighbours. Due to the restrictions of COVID-19, a private family inurnment will take place at White Chapel Memorial Gardens. A Celebration of Life, will take place at a later date. Donations to your local Humane Society would be greatly appreciated.
