I want to yell, scream and complain but it is hard to do so when Ethel was your Mother. I was very lucky to have had her for so long. Many in this world never even get one day being loved as much I as my Mother loved me. My Mother loved me enough to last forever.

Her positive attitude, cute little poems and sayings, along with her love will be with me forever. She is at peace with the Lord.

What a sweet woman. I had the privilege of meeting Ethel. I would see her in church all the time and was a witness to her generosity. She will be sorely missed. May God bless her family and bring them great consolation.

My deepest condolences to Al and his family. We had the pleasure of getting to meet both Al & Ethel. They took the very long journey of driving from California to Montreal,Quebec,Canada. My late father-in-law Salvatore Ciccotelli and Al Menanno are first cousins. It was amazing to me how Ethel knew the whole family tree. The few hours we spent with them will always be cherished. On meeting Ethel she seemed like a very sweet easy going woman.

I was lucky enough to have known Ethel and her kindness. She was the sweetest woman, and I miss her smiling face at De La Salle.

We want to give our deepest condolences to Al Mennano and his family. Ethel was a wonderful woman and we will truly miss her. We had the honor of meeting her when she and her husband Al (my grandmother's first cousin) came to visit us in Montreal, Canada. She was a wonderful person.
