Ethelene always looked forward to the sweet treats from the local bakery, Milton Quality Bakery which was owned by her brother, Lenzo and still owned by his descendants. She loved to fish like her brothers and spent many happy days at Blackwater River.

Ethelene thought all children should be loved and pampered so she was especially proud of her numerous nieces and nephews and their offspring. She was proud of her Irish heritage and interested in the genealogy of her family. She was well known for her compassion and generosity especially to her family whom she strived to instill her Christian values and ethics, led by her example.
