Obituary for ETHEL L. BURROUGHS

Ethel Louise Burroughs, affectionately known as “Kitty” was born on November 25, 1923 in Huntingtown, Maryland to the late Howard and Ethel Long. She passed away peacefully in her sleep on February 17, 2015.

She was a member of Patuxent United Methodist Church when she resided in Huntingtown, Maryland.

Ethel later moved to Baltimore, Maryland where she united in Holy Matrimony to the late James Williams Burroughs. From this union, there were two sons, James and Jeffrey.

She was educated in the Calvert County public school systems. She then proceeded on to the Central Regional School of Practical Nursing, where she obtained her Nursing license from the State of Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

She was employed by Montebello Hospital from 1972, until her retirement in 1992.

Ethel was best known for her exceptional baking skills. If you ever had her banana nut bread or her raisin cake, then you know what I’m talking about.

She enjoyed watching baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf. She loved to laugh, play card games, and visit with her family. Seeing her grandchildren always put a smile not only on her face, but in her heart. She always gave the best advice, no matter the situation. One of her famous sayings was “Never say Never”.

Preceding her in death: Sisters, Lillie M Mackall, Ollye Wallace, Dorthy Smith, Viola Gibson, Lee Smith, and Ann Venable; Brothers: Robert Jacks and Carlton Jacks.

She leaves to cherish her memory; Two sons, James Howard Burroughs and Jeffrey William Burroughs, Four grandchildren, Bryan Burroughs, Shanell Burroughs, Kellie Burroughs, and Christopher Burroughs; Three great-grandchildren; Jamaal Burroughs, Bryan Burroughs Jr., and Braylan Burroughs; Two sisters, Rose Holland and Carolyn Chew; One brother, Gene (Brother) Long; One Daughter-in-law; Denise Burroughs, and one Sister-in-law; Catherine Long. Devoted friends Roland Meads and the Egan family.
