Ethelyne played a large role in the life of many people, she was wife, mother, friend and a loyal companion, everyone who knew her appreciated her many talents, from her beautifully crocheted baby blankets and booties to her gift for designing unique household items.

Ethelyne, loved people and could fit in at large gatherings as well as one on one conversations, playing board games with her boys to her weekly visits with her special friend and niece Terry. she took pictures of about everything from babies to bunnies. Ethelyne had a real love for life and at times one could see her just soaking up the things around her, she loved her family with all her heart and enjoyed being with her friends at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Ethelyne dedicated her life to Jehovah God on May 25, 2002.She found comfort From the Bible in knowing that those who fall asleep in death will be raised to a paradise earth where their physical bodies will be whole and complete, this thought sustained her during her long hours of being house bound.
