Ethel could always be found on Friday mornings getting her hair done in Rose's chair (Studio 17), or at the Orange Top, enjoying her coffee and an English muffin. She lived in the same home for over 60 years, and the pride of ownership shined brightly throughout. Ethel loved her family more than anything in the world. You always knew where to go if you needed your sweet tooth fixed, Grams House or Grandma on the hill. Her loved ones know that whenever they see a frog, Ethel is watching. Her love of frogs, stuffed or stone, will never be forgotten.
Visitation was held March 15 at Smith, Seaman and Quackenbush Funeral Home, Monroe, N.Y. A Chapel Service followed in the funeral home officiated by Rev. Ross Topliff. Cremation took place at Cedar Hill Crematory, Middle Hope, N.Y.
