Ethel L. Haynes, 85, of 1900 Cliffside Dr., Apt 206, State College, PA
formerly of Sizerville Rd., Emporium died at her residence on Thursday
(January 1, 2015) morning.

She was born January 23, 1929 in Emporium, PA a daughter of the late
Clarence and Orvetta "Betty" Gribble LaPolt. On November 8, 1947 in First
Baptist Church Parsonage she married Harry L. Haynes, who survives.
As a young mother, she worked hard to successfully provide a nurturing and
stable home for her family despite the challenges presented by her role as
the wife of a man with a military career. She successfully battled cancer
when her daughters were on the threshold of elementary school, survived to
welcome her grandchildren into this world, and recently learned of the
impending birth of her first great grandchild. She was active in the Girl
Scouts of American for many years with her daughters and husband, Harry.
After numerous relocations throughout the United States and Europe over 20
years, she and Harry settled their family in her home town of Emporium.
Mrs. Haynes was a member of the First Baptist Church in Emporium, the
Portage Township Cemetery Association and the Odin Grange. She taught
children's Sunday School for many years and served as a deaconess at the
1st Baptist Church. She loved gardening and flowers. Plants thrived
under her care. She and Harry nurtured a massive garden each summer that
produced enough for shelves of canned goods and freezers stocked with
produce. Together, they produced enough fruits, vegetables, and berries
to share with family and friends. She was especially known for her
homemade spaghetti sauce and luscious pies. She adored hummingbirds and
had a cloud of them buzzing around a bank of feeders that she suspended
from her porch every summer. She enjoyed unnaturally good luck when
playing board and card games with her family and friends. Throughout her
life, she was an irreplaceable anchor and support for her loving husband
and family. Although her family grieves this parting, they find comfort
in the knowledge that she merely precedes them into the presence of her
Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Surviving
