Ethel Lorraine George
Ethel Lorraine George left us to be with the Lord on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, at the age of 65. She was born Nov. 11, 1947, to Phyllis George and Henry Steitle.
She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and aunt. She loved cooking, working in the yard and garden, cleaning house, shopping, and spending time with friends and family. She also loved partying, drinking beer, and barbecuing brisket, chicken, and country-style spare ribs. Ethel cherished being outdoors with loved ones and she enjoyed trips to Las Vegas with family and friends, where she excitedly played slots. She married the love of her life, Erich Elton George, in 1970. Ethel was a loving mother to Tammy Jean Tuttle and Danny Wayne George. Her grandkids lovingly called her “Mamaw.” Ethel spent 30 years working as a cosmetologist, then retired to be a full-time wife, mother, and grandmother.
