After many years of farming, Ethel was hired on as an inspector for Therm-O-Disc in Mansfield, Ohio where she eventually retired in 1985.
Ethel was known to most as a prize winning cook. She loved to bake and was exceptionally good at it, winning countless awards for her pies, cakes, rolls and canning goods from the Knox County Fair. She took great pride in baking and always enjoyed the smile it created when she handed a freshly baked pie to her family or friends.

She is survived by her children, Marilyn (Richard) Ewers of Fredericktown, Shirley Snyder of Mount Vernon and Ron Garver of Fredericktown, six grandchildren, Casey (Nikki) Ewers, Justin (Beth) Ewers, Weston (Stacy) Snyder, Shelly Garver, Wesley (Christin) Garver and Carrie (Russ) Stewart, fourteen great grandchildren, Cassius, Livian, Zayde, Conner, Braxton, Jaxon, Maddox, Cody, Brandon, Owen, Griffin, Sophia, Kendyl and Colin and her sister, Gloria “Glow” (David) Moysi of Mansfield.
Besides her parents she was preceded in death by an infant son, Donald Garver, five brothers, Fred Squires, Harry Squires, Don Squires, Guy Squires, Hoy Squires, five sisters, Eva Bockover, Alva Squires, Ruwe Squires, Wanda Bowers and Ola Heston.
