<div itemprop="description">Tuplin, Ethel Viola (nee Vindeg)<br>October 31, 1921 – November 21, 2016<br><br>On November 21, 2016, Ethel Tuplin (Vindeg) or Ethel Lewis as Forganites knew her, passed away quietly in Saskatoon. <br><br>She leaves to mourn five children, Robert (Cheryl), Brent (Sherry), Garth (Carol), Craig (Linda) and Barb; nine grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; a sister, Marlynn Leaper; sister-in-law, Tess and numerous nieces, nephews, other friends, and family. <br><br>She was predeceased by her first husband, Lorne Lewis in 1960, and her second husband, Eric Tuplin in 1988. She was also predeceased by her son-in-law, Don Blower; and siblings, Marvel, Irene, Toots, Morris; and brothers-in-law, Byron, Sam, and Bob. <br><br>Mom was raised at Demaine, Saskatchewan and taught school near White Bear and at Forgan. She married Lorne Lewis in 1945 and together they had five children. After Lorne’s untimely and sudden death in 1960, mom was left to run a farm and raise five school and preschool age children. She was a master at time management and attention to detail. She worked tirelessly to ensure her family had every opportunity to experience the Arts and agricultural endeavours and to participate in sports. In 1969, Ethel married Eric Tuplin, moved to Beechy with the three youngest children and started a new life as part of a blended family. After retiring from the farm, mom and Eric travelled to Europe, Asia, Australia and the US. Mom was active in the UCW, community organizations, clubs and sports, and later in life in Senior’s Clubs. Mom moved to Saskatoon in 1997 to be closer to her siblings. She loved to be with family and friends and lived a very active social life while residing in McClure Place. As her health deteriorated, she moved into assisted living in Amy McClure House and later into Circle Drive Special Care Home. We are very grateful to the staff at both homes for the kind and gentle care that mom received. <br><br>A Celebration of Life will be held at Park Funeral Chapel, 311 Third Avenue North on Friday, November 25, at 10:00 a.m. Luncheon to follow. Burial will take place Friday afternoon at the Forgan Cemetery. <br><br>Memorial donations, may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan or to the Alzheimer Society. <br><br>To share memories and condolences, visit “Obituaries”.
