It is with deep regret the family of Ethel Bullock announce her passing in Brandon Hospital on Tuesday, April 18, 2023.

Ethel is survived by Ron, her husband of nearly 62 years, and one son David and his wife Hua. She was born on the family farm north of Birtle, the youngest of seven siblings and the twin sister of Cathie (Smith). Besides Ron, David and Hua, she is survived by sister in-law Norma Golden; brother in-law Morris Mylrea and wife Debbie; brother in-law Lawrence Smith; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Ethel worked many years in the telephone office with time in Foxwarren, Shoal Lake, Hamiota, and Oak River. After David’s birth she was a stay-at-home mom, doing lots of driving to sports events, volunteering with 4-H sewing, and the fair board. Ethel also worked part-time in the post office, and eventually for a short time as Post Mistress.
