Cook Southland Funeral Chapel - Church(2021) "'Etta'"

Lillian Vyetta 'Etta' Church passed away in Medicine Hat on Tuesday, February 9, 2021, at the age of 80 years. Etta was born in Olds, Alberta and raised near Sundre (James River), the only daughter of four children to Mildred and Elton Bowness. Etta met Allan Church in 1957 and they were married soon after. She is survived by two sons: Bob (Wanda) and their family, Carson, Sarah (Ryan) and Kyle (Teanna); Kelly (Imelda) and their family, Nicole (Desmond) and Ryan as well as three great-grandchildren, Chase, Adelaide and Barret. Etta made numerous friendships in Carstairs where her family grew up and lived for many years. Her happiest times were spent there and she enjoyed socializing with others in the community through her employment at the Carstairs Post Office. An interment service will be held in Carstairs at a later date.
