Ethel Kemp passed away on Wednesday, March 7, 2007, surrounded by her husband Ray and their three children, Leslie, Joanne and Jeff.
Born on January 12, 1933 in Claybank, SK, Ethel spent her childhood in Claybank and most of her adult life in Calgary. She and her family lived in Victoria from 1964-67 and in Scarborough, ON from 1967 until 1973 when they moved back to Calgary. Ethel was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. A kind, warm, fun-loving and generous person, Ethel treasured times with family above all else.
