Pink Almond Tree Flowers

On September 8, 2020, my beloved wife of 43 years, Ethel Liane Dartnell (Lee) (my miss Laney) passed aged 66, exactly one month short of her 67th birthday at the Grace hospital after a short illness.


She was a very special lady and I will miss her terribly. She was totally unique, somewhat eccentric, a very special person who throughout her life showed kindness and helped many. She was extremely proud of her many years with CRA as an auditor and Interpretation and Services Officer Winnipeg District Excise/GST. Prior to that she worked for Central Graphics as accountant and Office Manager. For 25 years, she suffered terrible chronic head pain with grace, dignity, and without ever a word of complaint.


She wished to thank Dr. Roy W. Smith for decades of incredible dedicated and loving care. You made her life bearable.  She was predeceased by her father Benjamin Dartnell and mother Shirley Liane Dartnell (nee Watrin) and is survived by her husband (Aurèle Teffaine); one sister Kris, brothers Bill (Helen) and Paul (Shelley Hart); brother-in-law Rhéal (Carmen); and sister-in-law Shirley.


No services/memorial to be held at this time. NO flowers!  If you wish, donate to a charity of your choice.


Adieu ma Belle.
