Miss Ethel always welcomed me with her friendly smile at services at St. Paul. I always loved hearing her sing. She will definitely be missed. I am sorry for your loss.

With love,

Ethel always greeted me with a happy "hello lady, how ya doing" when ever I would go into the One Stop and would always take a minute to talk to you. She was always a very happy lady. I never stopped to realize I had not seen her in a while. My daughter in law would stop in there in the mornings and Ethel would be singing and the coffee group would all be enjoying a conversation. She will be a fond memory of Middletown for many people. I am so sorry for the families loss. When I saw the obituary I called my kids because they all thought so much of her.

Dear Toms Family,
Our contacts with Ethel were mostly at Valley1 but we received her caring ways for us, so warmly given by her. The spirit of Jesus Christ was always coming from her heart for others. Heaven has gained whom we on earth have lost. Her spirit is now with Jesus.

Ethel was a wonderful neighbor for many years when we lived in Middletown. Although we moved away some time ago, we always remembered her and tried to visit with her, usually at the One Stop, when we occasionally returned to Middletown. We are sorry to hear of her illness and recent passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with Gary and family.

Sorry for your loss. Cancer is a hard thing to deal with. Mom had cancer for over two years, it's not easy to let go.
