Murrieta Senior Resident Spotlight
Married with Children
She married young and had two sons with her first husband. But, the marriage didn’t last. They went their separate ways and Ethel began roller skating at a local rink. She made friends with a man in the Air Force and he taught her everything about roller skating. That man told his friend, John, on base that he was going to marry her, yet, it was actually John who later married her.
John wanted to marry Ethel, but she didn’t want to jump into another marriage. Plus she did not have anyone to watch her sons if she were to date
someone. John offered to take care of the boys while she went out to see how she liked other men. But, John had everything she wanted in a husband and the two were later married in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ethel shares it was one of the best decisions she ever made because he was a wonderful husband and father.
