On Sept. 18, 1938 Ethel married John Huhnstock and resided in Ruthton. Their union was blessed with three children--lena Lee, ]ames (Jim), and Judith (Suds), six grandchildren and eight great-grand- children. She was lovingly referred to as Grandma Great by them. Ethel and John built and operated the Ruthton Kleenette and J&E Kar Kleen, Ruthton Rural Water Service and the Ruthton Blacksmith. During these years to- gether, some of their most memorable enjoyments were the many summers their grandchildren spent with them. Together they enjoyed fishing, hunting, cards and time with ex- tended family and friends. They retired happily to- gether in 1982. In 1984 Ethel and John moved to Fortson, Georgia where they lived with grandson Scott Ressmeyer until their return to Ruthton in 1989. In 1995 Ethel returned to Fortson to be near her two daughters, where she helped with Joni's catering business, baking and cook- ing all her favorite recipes. Each summer Ethel trav- eled and spent time with ]udi in Indiana, and with her dear friends Richard and Catherine Ness, her sisters, and all her life friends in Ruthton. She was preceded in death by her husband John in 1995, son Jim in 1996, sister Gladys Lingen in 2017, and brother Wayne Sorensen.
