ETHEL MARGARITE SIMPSON (published on May 23, 2009)

ETHEL MARGARITE SIMPSON (nee POLLITT) On May 15, 2009 after several years of declining health, Mom passed away peacefully at the age of 97 at St. Norbert Personal Care Home with her family at her side. Predeceased in 1997 by her loving husband Hal, Ethel is survived by daughters Marjorie Kolbe (Joe), Eileen Lytle (Les) and grandchildren Chris, Sean (Jessica), Sam and Steph. A perfect day for Mom would be breakfast with her family, an afternoon of golf at the Wildewood Club and an evening bridge game with friends. Mom also enjoyed her travels with Hal, her art club, her cats and spending time with her dear friend Marj Baldwin. A devoted Anglican, Ethel dedicated many hours to running the bargain centre at St. Paul's Anglican Church in Fort Garry and was steadfast in her faith. The family would like to thank the staff at St. Norbert Personal Care Home and Fort Garry Care Centre for their kindness and thoughtfulness in caring for Mom. At Mom's request, cremation has taken place and a private graveside service will be held for the family at a later date. In her memory, friends are encouraged to hug their children, rescue a cat and eat chocolate. Should you so desire, a donation to the Winnipeg Humane Society or a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
