DUNN, Ethel Marie

1927 – 2012

Ethel Marie Dunn passed away peacefully on April 14, 2012 at Hospice House, Vernon, British Columbia. She was born March 12, 1927 on a homestead in Retlaw, Alberta. In 1968, Ethel and her husband, Herb, moved their family to Vernon to experience the wonders of the Okanagan. Ethel was devoted to her family who were constantly treated to her amazing cooking and baking. Her unselfish, caring nature and her warm smile were evident throughout her life. She was always available to lend a hand, offer a shoulder to cry on, or just sit and listen. Ethel was an avid curler and was honoured with a lifetime membership with the Vernon Curling Club. She loved gardening, flowers, swimming, camping, golfing and special times spent with good friends. Ethel was predeceased by her husband, Herb, in 2001 and infant daughter, Lorri Lynn, in 1961. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by daughters, Bev (Alan) Pothecary, Carol (Stan) Hunt; and son Randy (Jerry) as well as grandchildren, Brad (Jill), Grady (Brandy), Meagan, Erin and Ashlee (Eli). She was also blessed with beautiful great-grandchildren, Hailee, Evan, Riley, Alina and Easton as well as Kienna and Keiryn. She is further survived by sister, Vivian Stevenson of Invermere, B.C.; brother, Harold (Jeannine) of Okotoks, Alberta and numerous nieces and nephews. Special thanks to Dr. Gilhooly, Dr. Lavoie, Dr. Naude, staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and the incredible staff at North Okanagan Hospice Society.
