Born in Landenberg, PA on February 29, 1940, she was a daughter of the late Bayard and Helen Marie (Hess) Hollett. Ethel attended Elkton High School and Brown Vocational School, graduating in 1958. She was quite creative and loved to sew. She worked as a realtor for Century 21 and was a talented seamstress.
