Obituary of Ethel Wilkins

Ethel Wilkins passed away July 13, 2020 at Providence Place, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, at the age of 96 years. She received her education at Sweet Briar School in Watrous district. Ethel married Harold Wilkins of the Darmody district on November 16, 1943, at the Manse of St. Andews Church. Ethel was always a very social person. Living on the farm she was a member of the local social club. She loved to sing, yodel and play piano and guitar for old time dances at the Darmody Hall. Playing cards and games with family and friends was a favorite pastime. Any time she could spend with any of her family was treasured. A passing wave from a great-grandson or a letter from a granddaughter would make her day. Ethel and Harold farmed for 32 years and moved to Moose Jaw in 1975. She worked at the Moose Jaw Park Lodge Motel as pastry cook until she retired. Harold and Ethel belonged to the Moose Jaw Campers Club with their motorhome and travelled extensively, making one major trip to the USA and many shorter trips. They also vacationed in Hawaii. They lived in Rosewood apartments for 19 years. She lived in Crescent Park Retirement Villa for a few years, until she went to Providence Place. She is predeceased by her husband, Harold in April 2008; and her siblings, Alfred, Eva, Florence, Gladys, Johnny, Eileen and Maurice; her son-in-law, Larry; her great grandchildren, Emily, Sophie, and May.
