Ethel Leiper Christensen

(nee Folkins)

passed away peacefully on December 22, 2011 at the age of 89 years. Ethel is survived by her loving children, Jan (Rick) Finnegan of Lake Forest, CA; Myra (Richard Parker) Christensen of St. Catharines, ON; Karen (Bob Wolleswinkel) Christensen of Summerland, BC; grandchildren, Tracy, Richard, Scott and Wyatt; great grandchildren, Mary and Katharine; sister, Grace (A.V. “Marc”) Marcolin of Trail, BC. Ethel was sadly predeceased by her husband, Roy Parley Christensen and three sisters, Audrey, Margaret and Hazel. Ethel’s sunny personality lent fun to any activity; always laughter at the heart of any gathering. Ethel was an exceptional seamstress and, in her sixties, she took up piano lessons, learned to swim, began to bowl and even bought her own set of darts. Ethel loved her family and friends; her door was always open. A private family gathering will be held. Memorial tributes in Ethel’s memory may be made to Alzheimer’s Society, 104-35 Westminster Ave. East, Penticton, BC, V2A 1H7. Condolences may be directed to the family through
