Ethel May Ewasiuk

Ethel May Ewasiuk of Trail passed away peacefully on December 6, 2015 at Columbia View Lodge surrounded by her loving family.

Ethel was born in St. Paul on January 8, 1925. The family moved back to Saskatchewan where she later met and married her beloved husband Mike. They were married 67 years until his passing in 2008. Together they had 9 children, and always had an open door for all. Ethel enjoyed company and everyone enjoyed her home cooking, and always returned for seconds. Ethel loved her family and was deeply loved by them. She could always be heard humming and whistling.

Ethel was multi-talented, and enjoyed a variety of hobbies. They included playing music, gardening, sewing, camping and writing poetry, many of which were published. She had a quick wit and many were subject to her pranks at work and home.

Ethel is survived by her children, Ellen (Derek), Ron (Lek), Pat (Cliff), Stan, Bruce, Kathy (Bill), Don, Ken (Jan), three sisters, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her son Jack, and husband Mike.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at CVL, for the wonderful care given to Ethel over the last seven years. Donations in Ethel’s memory may be made to the Urology Campaign at KBRH. A celebration of life will be held in the spring.
