Obituary for Ethel L. Grant

Ethel Lee Grant (Roberts) was born in April 15, 1928 in Hooks Texas to the union of Mr. And Mrs. Thomas Roberts (Deceased). Losing her mother at the age of 11, she lived with her father and step mother. Soon after the passing of her mother she moved with her aunt and relocated to Denver Colorado. It was in Denver where she met and married Joe L. Grant in 1961. Together they raised four children; Sammie, Richard, Victoria, and Emma.

Ethel was a very free spirited, strong, and resilient woman. She enjoyed life to the fullest, determined to let nothing or no one slow her down. Ethel worked for Denver Public schools for 27 years. She retired at the age of 74.

Ethel loved relaxing on her porch and watching her beloved Broncos. She had a quick wit, a passion for those she loved, and wasn’t afraid to tell it like it was. Ethel was an outstanding cook and made a fantastic lemon merengue pie.

One of Ethel’s fondest memories was reciting Psalms 23 with her grandmother Lilian. This always stood out to Ethel because her grandmother was legally blind but she didn’t let that stop her from teaching Ethel this scripture at a young age.

Ethel Lee Grant was called home by her father on July 21, 2019. She was preceded in death by the love of her life, Joe L. Grant, and two daughters Sammie Lou Sigerst and Victoria Marie Mingo. Ethel leaves to cherish her memory her children Richard Mayfield, and Emma Jean Manis (Charles) all of Denver, CO. Five grandchildren: Tynetta Jackson; Matthew Sigarst; Treiva Johnson; Monique Witcher; Isaac Ray Baskerville; Leon Lee Sigarst, a host of great-grandchildren, great great-grandchildren, other family, and friends.
