Ms Ethel was one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Her fried pies were so good.

Though my life has taken me away from the family in Ruston not a trip home would pass that did not include a visit with Aunt Ethel. As she and my father are first cousins the relationship between her and my family have always been strong as she and her husband George were close friends with my grandparents Tay Martin and Alene Chendler Martin. My father has shared many fond memories from his childhood where Ethel and her family played a central role. On my last visit with Ethel during the summer of 2012 I proudly sat along side her and the rest of our kin out at Mineral Springs Baptist Church for Homecoming. Though my wife Sumyra and I now live in Seattle Washington we will always relate our homecomings to Lincoln Parish with our memories of Ethel and her amazing southern cuisine and her heart of gold.Love,Lucius Martin & Sumyra Duy

George, Mike and all the family, my heart was so saddened when I heard about your sweet mothers passing. I will always have fond memories from the times I spent with her. She was a lady who could answer just about any question you might ask her, especially about cooking and the Bible. She was my go to person when I had a question about finding something in the Bible. And if you ever ask about family, especially her grandkids and great grandkids she always had the biggest smile on her face. She will be missed dearly by all of us who had the pleasure of knowing her. There is no doubt in my mind that she is touching the face of God... Sending my condolences, my thought, and prayers to all of you during this time.... My God give you peace during this time of need.

To Mike And George: Our thoughts and prayers are certainly with you. Your mom was always so nice to me and to our family. One of my fond memories of childhood was a family trip to Atlanta to see George pitch for the Braves. Mr. and Mrs. Stone rolled out the red carpet for us and escorted us down to the family area post-game. For a young Dixie Youth baseball player (at the time), it was quite a thrill. That was typical of Mrs. Stone, going out of her way to be nice to others. And, when my Dad passed away a few years ago, she and her Sunday School members at Temple Baptist took charge and prepared the post-funeral meal at the church, all while consoling her close friend, and our step-mom Shirley. "Ms. Ethel" will be missed. But, her legacy lives through the outstanding lives led by Mike and George and the entire family. There can be no better testimony than that. Mrs. Stone, rest in Peace. To the family, may God grant you Peace and comfort in this difficult time. Our entire family is thinking of you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

George and Mike,Ruston has lost a legend in the death of your mom. While she will always be remembered for her delicious fried pies, we will also remember her as a wonderful Christian lady who loved her Lord and her family. Nothing brought a smile to her face quicker than to talk with her about her "boys" and her grandchildren. She loved cooking for you and making things for the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Bill felt honored in that she really tried to teach him how to make fried pies (even though it was suppose to be a secret) - he never quite succeeded but enjoyed getting instructions from her. We grieve with you and with her dearest friend, Shirley Hench Crowe. May God bless you with sweet memories of a precious mom.Rita and Billy Belding
