Dear friends,

I remember Ethel as someone who always had a smile and pleasant nature and was kind to those around her.

When I was six or seven I recall her giving me a “Tonette” perm. As the mother of three boys I am not certain how or why this happened but it illustrates her compassionate nature.

Sympathy to all of the family. You were blessed with a special mom which makes it even harder to lose them. May sweet memories warm your hearts.

My best,

Ginger Corado
