We are so sorry for your loss and want to share our condolences for your sweet mom. It’s so hard to lose a loved one, especially a parent and hope your wonderful family finds peace in all your beautiful memories. Love you guys and sending you all hugs❤️
Mrs. Granato along with the whole Granato family always made me feel welcome although I was not a true Bainer. I will always remember her warmth and her smile every time she greeted you. Her love and pride for her family was always evident. My last memory of her was meeting her, Deb and Kim in the lobby of Lakeridge Hospital. She tried so hard to remember who I was. I like to think she did as I will always remember her and her kindness. I look forward to celebrating her as soon as it is possible and I will bring something sweet in her memory to share in her memory. RIP Ethel. You will be missed. Kathie LeBlanc (Molloy)

So devastating to lose one’s mother!
Great memories are rushing in – your mom’s grand smile, her great laugh and the twinkle in her eye. She was an amazing and wonderful person and all of my family loved her.
She brought forth such amazing children! Her light shines through all of you – her devoted and loving children, Debbie, Kim and Nick as well as her darling grandchildren and great grand children.
Sadness abounds but I truly believe Ethel is at peace.
