She received her education from the Old Mudd Ridge School in Coles Point, Virginia. At an early age, Ethel accepted Christ as her personal Savior and became a member of Potomac Baptist Church. There she remained an active member until her health began to decline.
Ethel enjoyed family time, preparing delicious meals, and attending family gatherings. She was employed at Dean’s Seafood and as a housekeeper for the Coates, Fairfax, Straughn, Sanford, Walker, and Welch families for over 50 years. Ethel also encountered 40 years of friendship with her favorite daughter-in-law, Ester.
