  1. Mrs Buck was a wonderful, kind person and treated me like family. My sincere condolences to the Buck family and friends as you will be missed. Love you Ethel.

  2. Ethel was my next door neighbor for quite awhile and my friend. My
    sincere condolences to her family and friends. She was such a lovely
    person. We need more people like her.

  3. So sorry to hear of Ethel’s passing. I went to Kindergarten with her at Lakeview and we graduated Class of 1955 Central High School. She was a wonderful friend. I know you will all miss her.

  4. I would like to extend my condolences to the family of Ethel Buck. When I was a little kid going to school at Lakeview Elem I also attended the Christian Evangel Church with my brothers and sisters. Mrs. Johnson was my girl scout leader and Sunday School teacher first than Ethel taught my Sunday School class as I moved up. During wintertime through the years Ethel would always call and see if we needed a ride and cheerfully pick us up if need be, that has been decades ago (the 60’s) but I never forgot her willingness to do that for us and her love of God. She set a wonderful example for us and has never been forgotten. I’m sure Jesus welcomed home one of his faithful servants with open arms. God bless
