Ethel’s focus in life was her family, and she lived her life by supporting and caring for the people she loved. She was always there for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, whether it was to talk about how their days were, offer them a meal, or help them through tough times. She had a great sense of humor and was always quick to laugh. When she laughed, you couldn’t help but laugh with her. She enjoyed nature and spent many happy times in her cottage on the Au Gres River in Tawas
