On August 4, 2015, Ethel West Bourget passed away at home. She went to heaven to be with God surrounded by family who loved her. Born on March 5, 1942 in Cohoes, New York, Ethel graduated high school with honors. She met Norman Francis Bourget; they married and had a happy, loving life together raising their family until his death in 1984. Ethel was twice blessed to find love again with Nabor Medina, with whom she shared her life and love for 28 years. Ethel lived many places as she followed Norman in his navy career. He retired after 20 years and they settled in Tooele where they spent the remainder of their lives together. Ethel was a woman with endless love in her heart. She brought happiness to the lives she touched. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She raised her children with love. Ethel and Nabor loved traveling and saw many wonderful places together through the years. She loved doing genealogy and was an avid reader; everywhere she went, she had a book in her hand. She enjoyed playing cards with her friends and going to Wendover.

Her family became larger when she fell in love with Nabor and she is also survived by step children Velma (Woody) Gober, James Medina (Carolyn), Anne Medina, and many more beloved grandchildren and great grandchildren as her family continued to grow. She has many good friends who will miss her greatly, including Carol and John Jeffers, Stacey McCracken and too many more to name.
