Ethel’s greatest treasure was her husband of 57 years Goody and her family. She was the Head Cook in the Farmington school district for many years. She loved the colors blue and red, the Minnesota Twins, playing games especially Aggravation, playing the harmonica, nature, gardening, cooking, baking, camping, travel, and sitting on the porch with Goody. She enjoyed friends, bible study, church, laughing, listening to the radio and serving. She will be dearly missed. We are honored by her life.
