Ethel was the youngest of three daughters of Nelson Narcise Montray and Harriett Willmore. She married Lionel Argent Kirton 1 June 1935 at First United Church in Hamilton (formerly First Methodist Church). Ethel and Lionel had three children, Miriam Ruth, George Walter and Helen Ann. Ethel was actively involved as a member of the choir and Couples Club at First United Church. After moving to "Hamilton Mountain" she and Lionel transferred their memberships to Olivet United Church where she was an active member for many years as a choir member and life member of the United Church Women. She was widowed in 1988. After living alone for several years she decided in 1999 to move to a seniors' residence in Ancaster called Carrington Place where she fully participated in their social activities. After suffering several small strokes, she moved to a nursing home called Macassa Lodge in 2001 where she lived until her death. Ethel was known for her excellent knitting and baking skills and her beautiful garden. She was an active member of Mount Hamilton Horticultural Society for many years. Ethel was an avid bridge player and was in the same bridge club for over 60 years, outliving her bridge club friends. Very health conscious, she not only cooked nutritious meals for her family but walked at least two miles a day until her early nineties when her health declined.
