so sorry to hear of Ethel's passing. She was married to my father in law,
Gerald Shirar, and was such a blessing to Conrad (deceased Oct 2015) and myself. I considered her a very dear Mother-in-law and we had some good times together shopping and laughing.

There are aunts and there are aunts but Aunt Ethel was an exceptional loving and caring woman. I am so blessed that she was family to me. The wonderful and loving memories of time spent with her are a treasure that I will keep for the rest of my life. Anthony liked her a lot. She was very kind to him and he is forever grateful. God has a wonderful place for her in His house. My mother and Aunt Ethel are having a grand time together.
