So very sorry to hear of Ethel’s passing. Ethel was a member of the Ruth Circle at the Roselle United Methodist Church. I remember her as a wonderful and friendly woman. We missed her when she moved away, and we often remember her and others of our Ruth Circle who moved to new locations. May your family be Comforted by God knowing that your beloved Ethel has been embraced by God. The Peace of God be with YOU all.

I will always remember her smile when we (the FUMC youth) came to your home before Christmas to sing carols for her. What a blessing and honor to know her and have her in our lives. Prayers of peace and comfort to all of you.

Deacon Sharon Rice 2019-02-07T10:25:16

Please accept our sincere condolences and sympathies during this most difficult time. While nothing will completely take away your grief, we have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be especially comforting where it promises that soon God will swallow up death forever and wipe away the tears from all faces. May God comfort all of you and give you peace in the days ahead. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4

Ethel will be missed in so many ways. She always filled the room with her sense of humor, her love, an open home and open heart to anyone who was around her. As part of our extended family, we will truly miss her. We pray that God will give her family the strength and courage needed at this most difficult time.
