    "It is always one of the saddest times when a mother passes. Especially when is it one who raised one of the finest families. I am a friend of Bill and Avis Brodie and I send to them and the entire family my deepest sympathies at this time. She will always be your mother and mother-in-law and you will carry her into the future with you through your thoughts and love for her. It is difficult now and will be difficult for a number of days to come in the future, just know she loved you and is with you every hour of every day. Wishing all the best to you and the family Monica and Thomas Hough"

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.
