Ellen passed away peacefully at the age of 92. She was
predeceased by her husband, Norman who died in 2007. She will be lovingly remembered by her sister, Margaret
Kokayko (Calgary); her children, Trevor (Ruth), Karen Fettes (George) and Gail White; her grandchildren, Ryan McIntyre (Kara), Aaron McIntyre, Lesley Fettes (Dan), Alastair Fettes (Alexa) and Sabrina White and great-grandchildren, Nyah, Larix, and Idunn. Ellen grew up on the
Prairies, met and married Norman, a New Zealand air
gunner, in Calgary. She traveled as a war bride to
Christchurch, New Zealand where she and Norman lived for 7 years. They returned to Calgary in 1953 where she worked as a secretary. In 1998, they moved to Sidney, B.C. to enjoy the seaside and quiet pace of life that the town offered. The family would like to thank Shannon of Saint Elizabeth Health Care and Dr. C. James of Associated Physicians in Sidney, as well as the many friends and care providers that enabled Ellen to remain in her own home until she died.
At Ellen’s request there will be no service. In lieu of
flowers, please consider a donation to the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation, or the charity of your choice. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.mccallbros.com.
