Ethel enjoyed sewing, quilting, reading English novels and watching sports. Basketball was her favorite and the Boston Celtics were her team.  In early April, Augusta National Golf Club holds The Masters tournament, you could find Ethel in her easy chair watching golf.  In the fall, it was college football. Ethel would be rooting for her Georgia Bulldogs...GO DAWGS!  But Ethel's real passion was her love of gardening. She would often share her plants with family and friends inspiring all that having a green thumb was possible.
