We remember 'Aunt Etta' as a sweet & kind lady. We knew her as Aunt Bernice's sister. They looked very much alike. Etta was a very strong woman working long hours at the Saluda Shirt Plant & the Saluda Hosiery Mill and outliving 2 husbands. We were all visiting Aunt Bernice & Etta brought her a sweet Chocolate treat. Etta herself was a sweet treat. The last time I saw Etta was visiting with her with Millie Livingston & Norma Price at the nursing home. She is now in the loving arms of God.
