Ethel Shirley Skanes, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend, passed away at the Grande Cache Health Complex on Jan. 7, 2010, at the age of 70 years with her husband and children by her side. We are blessed that mom did not suffer long, and is resting in God’s house that was prepared for her.
Ethel was born July 11, 1939, in Glace Bay, N.S. She will be sadly missed by her loving husband John of 50 years; sons, John (Geneva) Skanes, Grande Cache, Alta., Robert (Carol) Skanes, Grande Prairie; and daughter, Carol Anne Petrie, Grande Cache. Ethel also lovingly leaves behind seven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; one brother, Robert Wadden, Glace Bay, N.S.; and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
Ethel was predeceased by her father, Johnnie Wadden, mother, Greta Wadden (Hewitt) and sister, Gwen Wadden.
Ethel’s passions in life were her husband, children, grandchildren, family and friends. Mom’s greatest passion was driving the school bus. She loved all the kids. Mom also enjoyed crocheting, art and crafts. No job was too big or too complicated when it came to creating things with her own hands.
Mom will be forever missed and forever in our thoughts and in our hearts. We love you, until we meet again. God bless you always, rest in peace, your loving husband and family.
Memorial service was held Saturday, Jan. 16 at 2 p.m. at Cornerstone Mountain Assembly in Grande Cache.
