She would later become a member to The Grace Chapel Baptist Church where her father was Pastor. She has been a member of Grace Chapel for 38 years.
Ethel had a beautiful spirit, she could always be seen with a smile on her face and loved to clean, and when she cleaned she left on room untouched. Her passion was caring for her Grace Chapel Family whether it was cleaning the church or serving on a countless number of committees.
Her home was always welcoming to all who came to visit. It was impossible to be in a bad mood around her because she was full of love and energy. When she greeted you it was always with a smile on her face and always as "Hi my friend" Everyone was special to her. She loved to laugh and spend time with her family and dear friends. You would always be fed physically and spiritually in her presence.
