Aunt Ethel was such an amazing woman. When she was present there was laughter. Her face lit up when she talked to you. I love that she was so full of life. I will treasure our last Raney Reunion where I took pictures of her with my sisters. I will miss you Aunt Ethel. May God comfort all of you who loved her so dearly. Rest in peace Aunt Ethel.

My condolence to Ethel's family and friends. I only knew her for a short time but I admired her style, a friendly and beautiful lady. I will miss her smile and her waving at me from across the room at Harry Stone line dancing where I met her.

All of the line dancers at Harry Stone Recreation Center will miss your smiling face and positive attitude. We have missed seeing you these past months during your illness. I think of you often and remember how helpful you were when I first began line dancing. You are and were a special person.
