(nee FORD)
June 1, 1950 - April 21, 2021

Peacefully, with her family by her side, Echo passed away at age 70 after a long battle with Dementia.
Echo is survived by her best friend and companion Ken Schindel, her son Kevin Sexton (Roxanne), her daughter-in-law Theressa Sexton, grandchildren, Melissa (Kyle), Mark (Ashley), Jordan (Megan), Bryce, Jersey and Hunter; great-grandchildren, Emma and Ali; and her sisters, Heather Goulet (Paul), Coral Ritchot and Shawna Taylor. She was predeceased by son Timothy Sexton, her parents, Violet Arnason and George Ford.
Echo was such a kind woman and was so easy going. She enjoyed going to Bingo with her best buddy Shirley and their friends for years. She enjoyed road trips to car shows and Harley rides on the back of Ken's bike. Ken called her his Biker Babe.
There are no words to express how thankful we are to Ken for taking such good care of her when she got sick.
According to Echo's wishes, a private burial will take place.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Echo's memory to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba.
