My Auntie Ethel, my second mom , had the best laugh. I am filled with joy that she was such a big part of our life. She is a perfect example of what makes a wonderful aunt, mother and friend. She was the best dancer too. The Osterman Clan will keep her wonderful memory alive as we share all the fabulous events and stories of her for years to come. Love and prayers to all my cousins who are grieving the loss of this wonderful lady.

Ethel was a part of my 43rd Street history
She gave me the opportunity to follow her example to the reading of Scripture at mass.
She was a faithful daughter of our Lord and the Church .
