Thank you to Dr. Drijber and the Leisure Living Staff for all their care and compassion. A private graveside service will be held at Gill Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to Gill Cemetery or Hagersville United Church would be greatly appreciated by the family. Mom was selfless, kind, always made time for her family, loved a good meal and never turned down a road trip. Mom’s passing leaves a huge hole in our family. “So Long, It’s Not Good-Bye."

Sincere sympathies to all the family. She was a lovely, sweet lady. How many times I would stop as she was walking to church to offer a ride and she'd say "nope, I need the walk". There were a couple of times she took the ride but not many. Will be missed.

Truly a very special lady. She always amazed me with her daily trips walking to the Post Office, grocery store and of course to Church on Sundays. She rarely missed a Sunday. Her willingness to help whenever asked will always be remembered. Always smiling. Rest in peace Ethel. You were one of a kind. Thoughts and prayers to all the family.

I would like to extend my condolences to the entire Rowntree family. While I worked as an insurance agent I had the chance to meet with Ethel alone on several occasions. I was able to get to really know her and learn how important family was to her. She truly was a very nice person and a great Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

My deepest condolences on behalf of myself, my brother Karl and our mother, Edith. Great memories growing up on Oneida TownLine, and the visits back and forth between our two farms. Ethel was a lovely person towards our family as was all the Rowntree clan. She will be missed.

Condolences to all the Rowntree family. She was a lady that always wore a smile. The last time Doug saw her at Leisure Living she made him laugh and smile the whole day. We have been honoured to be connected with the wonderful family she raised and was very proud of. May your memories warm your hearts and bring you a smile.

My condolences to all of the Rowntree family. Your Mom was a very special lady, always smiling and always interested in what you were doing. I told my Mom Eleanor Peart about Ethel’s passing, she remarked “we had such fun playing on the farm together when we were little”. There are very few McClung cousins left. Cherish the special memories of a very dear Mother and friend.
