Born to Ethel Garrison was her second daughter Lisa Taylor in 1973 Ethel loved her two daughters and family dearly. She enjoyed cooking and music. She was happy and found good in all. Ethel was a pleasure to be around. Listening to her talk about the past that she enjoyed, but her family was her greatest joy. She always included her lord and savior in her life. She prayed daily and was thankful for him being in her life. The days as she became ill she never complained. She was always cheerful. Read her bible in the hospital daily when she became to ill to read for herself, she asked the nurses to read for her. In this she did until the lord called her home. We were able to have Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years and she shared her daughter Lisa Taylor and grandson Charles Yohaness Cunningham III birthdays with them. We thank god for all the wonderful years we had with her. Ethel, we love you dearly, but god loves you more and has called you home.
