Before her death she lived on a farm in Caroline County.

Ethel was always proud to be a true Eastern Shore resident. Memories of her childhood on Hoopers Island was often a topic she would share with others. She decided to write a book, “To Hoopers Island with Love” so the memories would live on forever.
