Obituary of Ethel Ruhland
Ethel was a simple woman, from a small family. She grew up with her two brothers, then got married and had 3 kids of her own. She lost her husband when she was only 43 years old. This tragedy made Ethel find her inner strength. As a single mother of her 3 young children, she worked very hard to provide for her family. She worked various jobs before eventually being hired at the West Seneca School District.
Ethel put her time with her family above everything else. She loved to sew and quilt, and enjoyed making things with her own hands that she could pass on to her family. Every year for Christmas, she would create her own Christmas ornaments and give them to everyone she knew. She was also in a sewing circle for 35 years, where she made lots of friends as well as handmade gifts for her family. Ruhland, Ethel H. (nee Geil) September 24, 2017 of West Seneca, NY.
