To my dear cousins,
I am so sorry to hear the passing of your Mom and my dear Aunt. I have lots of fond memories of the many, many visits to your home and the time I boarded with you guys. Great memories! Aunt Ethel was a wonderful person who opened her heart and home to everyone. Love to you all.

Tibbs Family,

So sorry to hear about Ethel’s passing. She was a great spirit who welcomed all into your home on Wishingwell Road for many years. May she rest in peace.

Sorry to hear of Aunt Ethel’s passing.
She was hard working and a devoted Wife and Mother, as I found out over the years of spending time at your home.
I remember going to the house with our crew, a rowdy bunch as usual, to steal Heather away for a night out. Your Mom would never complain about it and was always good to us (I can’t figure out why). We always felt welcome.
God rest her soul
Take care of each other.

We wish to extend our condolences on the passing of your dear mother. Our thoughts and prayers with you during this very sad time. May her gentle soul Rest In Peace

Aunt Ethel was always a very busy lady with caring for a big family and running a business . She was always pleasant , especially patient and made you feel welcome in her home , especially our out of town family .
I know that life wasn’t always easy , but she put her best side out and her sense of humor and outgoing manner carried her through .
