Ethel was the real deal. She never turned anyone away and would do absolutely anything for you. She adopted all of us as her own, and she was our Mawmaw. My love to all the family. ❤️

This photo is exactly how I remember my Aunt Ethel. I always loved this picture of her! There are a lot of memories of her when we were with Papaw (Frank Miller) and Mamaw (Pat Miller) and their home on Harvard Place, which seemed like all the time, when Kim and I were growing up. Aunt Ethel was always very loving to us and she will not be forgotten. To Deborah, Danny, Ray, Gerald, Roger,Norman, Almeda, Ronnie, and family, we are praying for you. She will be greatly missed. Love, Jamie Shope Bradley, James, MaryElisabeth, and Elijah Bradley
