The oldest person in Elkton
Ethel is 94 years old, and I believe she is the oldest, or one of the oldest, young ladies in town. Ethel grew up, married, and farmed all her life on a farm north of Elkton. She tells me that Elkton is home for her; and for now, that is how she plans to keep it. She says she feels good, and her health is good. But yet, one of the most difficult things for her about being the oldest in the community is that she has outlived most of her very close friends.
Ethel still enjoys a good game of cards with friends, and when the weather is nice a ride in country. She also enjoys having a good steak dinner with friends in one of our neighboring towns on Saturday night.
