Ethel or "Ma" as her grandkids knew her was a very small lady of stature, only standing approximately four foot eleven. She was a lady that did not find anything in life she could not tackle. She loved flowers and had a beautiful Mimosa tree in her front yard that hummingbirds would flock to in the summer.
If you will notice, Charlie and Ethel died seven years apart to the very day.
