Miller and they were blessed with three children, Robert, David and Ruth Ann. Otto preceded her in death in 1968. Ethel was a very self-sufficient and capable woman.

(Judy) Miller of Grantsbury WI & Tucson AZ; daughter, Ruth Ann (Don) Brunckhorst of Lakeland MN; six grandchildren: Julie (Mike) Thron, Susan (Jim) Iverson, Rob (Mona) Miller, Pam Brunckhorst, Gary Brunckhorst, and Greg (Lynn) Brunckhorst; seven great-grandchildren: Lindsay, Ashley & Lauren Thron, Matthew, Jessica & Megan Iverson, and Ally Brunckhorst; great-great-granddaughter, Emma Thron; and extended family.
