Memorial candle

    "I never got to meet your mom. Just talked to her on the phone once last year (or was it the year before?) She seemed like a nice lady and I know that she did a great job of parenting as she raised such good crop o' kids. I'm sure she's up above looking down on all of her Brodie brood. God bless Mrs. Brodie."

    "My deepest condolences to the Brodie family and relatives! Mae was my mom, Aldora's closest friend in Mtl N and I grew to love her and called her Auntie Mae. Even my triplets knew her as Auntie Mae. She was the most generous, caring, loving person we have ever had the privilege to know, and has been sorrily missed ever since she moved to Ontario. We are deeply saddened to read of her passing. "

Legacy

About Ethel Mae Brodie

Mae was a farm-raised Saskatchewan girl whose character was tempered by the Depression and shaped as a WWII bride while her husband served in the Royal Canadian Navy. She knew how to stretch a dollar, but shared her love and encouragement freely. She welcomed family gatherings and the porch light was left on to welcome anyone to her open door. She was famous for her wonderful meals, fresh baking and hot cocoa ready for visitors any time of day or night. At the drop of a hat she could feed a crowd, which she frequently did. She will be forever remembered for her strong Christian faith, ready laugh, knowing smile, endless patience, great wisdom, and lasting friendships. She cared deeply and tirelessly for children and supported several children’s charities for developing countries; her care and parenting knew no borders! Therefore, in lieu of flowers, donations to Free the Children, World Vision, or another children’s charity are requested.  The family wishes to express thanks to Dr. Chiu for his care of Mae over the last several years, and to Dr. Hack and the staff of the Headon Forest unit of Creek Way Village for their truly excellent and compassionate care of Granny Mae over her last few months.
