  1. Valerie and Jay Colburn :

    To Jerry and Wendy and family. Auntie Ethel was the best!
    She always spoiled me so and I loved spending time with her. Our trip to Hungary was one of the best things we ever did together and will be etched in my heart forever.
    We will truly miss her but know she lived her life well and left us with lots of love and happy memories to cherish.
    Greatly missed, but never forgotten.

    With love, Jay and Val
