Ethelda was wonderful gal who loved her husband's singing She loved music and dancing even at 90. Loved to watch them both at Rex's in Germantown. She will be missed by many for she was loved!

Oh my gosh! What a wonderful lady! It is truly a Blessing to be able to say Ethelda has been a part of my life. She was always so very kind to me at church and gracious. We spent many evenings enjoying listening to Emory sing at the Music/Dance hall. I always admired the way the two of them could dance. I know it must be sweet to be Home Ethelda but you will be missed here. Thankyou for Blessing my life.
