Ethel, oh the times we had! You always worked so hard to earn that "big" paycheck. You prayed to Jesus to let him keep you where you wanted to live and He never let you down! We had many wonderful lunches with our friend Jim Finneagan. I have so many wonderful memories of you. I am glad you were my friend.

From all of the ladies here at MSOCS Morristown, We all worked with Ethel at some point in our careers and have many, many memories. My personal favorite was working in Elm building on weekend mornings when Ethel shared a room with Pam B. We would often start the day with a song and more often than not it was "God Bless America". Ethel and Pam would belt it out and it was a great way to start the day! Rest in peace sweetie.

Dear Ethyl! The memories I have over the past almost 40 years are overwhelming!! You were such a special person in our family. I remember when Mama Shelly first met you when she was sixteen and told our family about her dear friend Ethyl Mae. Well, we all fell in love with you. You were apart of our children and grandchildren's lives. You always reminded us of Jesus in heaven and how He always listened when we prayed and talked with him. I remember your love of the Thirties bands and how you could dance!! You loved movies, especially the Sound of Music!! You had such great manners and always dressed so pretty and had your hair fixed beautifully. You my dear friend, taught many life lessons. Never judge a person on the outside. Always, be respectful and dignified. Work to make a difference, believe in Jesus, He is ALWAYS listening and sooooo close. Never forget those you love and love you!! I am so happy you are in heaven!!! You will live on in our hearts forever. Thank you Ethel Mae!! You have touched my life forever!! See you someday soon!! Love from Momma Shelly and Daddy Rick's sister Brenda!!
