Ethel was preceded in death by her parents and by her sister-in-law Margaret Mills Lively. Ethel was an extraordinary person especially when it came to her memory. She could tell you the birthdays of the Haven residents and their family members and what their dogs names were, not to mention all of her family. She was also a Bingo Master. She attended IBM Business School and in her earlier year’s baby sat for numerous people. Left to cherish her memory are her brother Pete Lively of Columbia, her niece: Phyllis Ballard and her husband Roger of Columbia, three nephews: Danny Lively and wife Carla of Crowville, Tommy Lively and wife Linda of Eros and Scott Lively and wife Cheryl of Columbia, ten great nieces and nephews and twenty one great-great nieces and nephews. Serving as pallbearers will be Ben Lively, Shannon Varnell, Colt Lively, T J Lively, Brandon Lively, and Ryan Ballard. Special thanks to Dr. Pankaj Shroff for his many years of care. We also thank Haven Nursing Center for giving Woody the three best years of their love, friendship and teaching her Bingo. Online registry/condolences:
