Ethel began her career with Security Mutual. She later worked as a bookkeeper for a variety of construction companies. In between those jobs, she dedicated her life to raising her children. Ethel was a member of First Christian Church, Kirkwood, Necker Valley Baptist Church, in Boeblingen, Germany, and then Valley View Alliance, Vestal, NY. She was active as a Sunday School Teacher. Ethel had a sweet disposition and everyone became her grandchildren. Her adventurous spirit made her fall in love with sleigh riding, often convincing her younger siblings, grandchildren, and great grandchildren that they needed to go with her. She was still going sledding into her late 80s. Ethel’s encouragement and support directly contributed to her husband and son’s Doctoral Degrees. She often assisted in the field with Harold’s research. Ethel was known for her apple pies, cookies, and potato salad.

Spring interment will be made in Brookdale Cemetery. Friends may call from 2-4 p.m., prior to the service.
