She loved her nursing profession and was always available to any friend, relative or neighbor that needed her skills. Even in her last years due to a stroke while she resided at Manor by the sea nursing home, she could be seen traveling the halls in her wheelchair, holding a residents hand who appeared to be in distress or alerting the nursing staff when she noticed a particular problem with any of the residents. NO BINGO FOR ETHEL!!!!! She wanted to work and be useful. During her life Ether worked at Atlantic City Hospital, did private duty nursing, and was a nurse at Our Ladies Residence in Pleasantville.

Weather it be teaching them to do cartwheels, play cards or taking them crabbing she cherished every minute . She was a beloved mother , wife, aunt and friend who enriched our lives in countless ways and her boundless love, loyalty, energy and zest of life will live in our hearts and inspire us always.
