Ethel also loved tending to her flowers and giving starts to family and friends.Ethel loved garage and estate sales and wanted to stop at every single one to ensure that she didn't miss a bargain.
Ethel will be missed by all that loved her smile, her great sense of humor and her straight- forwardness.
