I met Ethel when Patricia was an infant. We went to church together, worshiped in our homes together and watched our children grow up and become friends. I have so many wonderful memories of Paul and Ethel and am so thankful for the legacy they left for Patricia and Diane and all their children and Grandchildren. Love you Girls and treasure the memories. Nola Mae Creech

Sis. Shiflett was a beautiful, kind Godly woman. She loved her family, God, Church and her friends. She never forgot a birthday and was always thoughtful and loving. Ill miss her so much!

"I value my friendship with my sister-in-law very much. We had many visits over the years and together with my brother Paul, we would sit at the kitchen table and he would expound on the word of God. It was a blessing to everyone present. Ethel was always a delightful part of our visits. She and I would sing at church sometimes and I enjoyed that. i'm thankful for the many memories."

Aunt Ethel was as sweet as they come! Loved the Lord and others so much. She will always be remembered for her kindness. Almost ten years ago, her dear Paul went to be with Jesus. Now, they both have made it. Let's make sure WE make it. <3
