Obituary of Ethel Elizabeth Hynes

Passed suddenly away on November 5, 2021, Ethel Elizabeth Hynes at her residence.  She was 75 years of age.  She was predeceased by her parents George and Priscilla Billings; sisters Verna, Dorothy, Avis; brothers Wilfred, Truman, John and Ford. 

Ethel was born and raised in Moores Cove, NL.  She later moved to Fortune Harbour where she married Alonzo Hynes, her husband of 52 years.  Together they had two beautiful children Michelle and Shannon.  Ethel dedicated her life to her family.   In later years along came her one and only granddaughter Sarah.  Her life was now complete! Sarah was her prize possession, her pride and joy.  Anyone who had the pleasure of knowing Ethel knew she had a heart of gold and such a beautiful contagious smile.  She loved to have a good laugh and had time for anyone and everyone, especially her special friends, Alonzo and Michelle Butler.  No one ever left Ethel’s home with an empty stomach, a lunch was always a must!! She will be greatly missed by her loving family, friends and all the hearts she touched on her journey.

She leaves to mourn her husband Alonzo Hynes; son Shannon (Jessica); daughter Michelle (Valentine); granddaughter Sarah; sister Chloe and Vera; brothers Ben and Victor; special friends Alonzo and Michelle Butler; and a large circle of other relatives and friends.   

Pallbearers will be her son Shannon Hynes, Nephew Fabain Power, Valentine Mcloughin, Alonzo Butler, Gerald Cary and Peter Carroll.

Following Covid 19 restrictions the visitation and service will remain private and by invitation only. Thank you.

“A mother is your first love, as her children are her last,

A bond that stretches evermore, in the future and the past. “
