Ethel Migliorini was born June 3rd, 1920 in Brooklyn NY to Altidoro and Maria Garilli. She was the sixth of seven children. She is a retired library assistant from Brooklyn College. After graduating from Girls Commercial High School, she worked in the Manhattan Garment District and in a Defense Plant during World War II.
She and her husband owned and operated Brookview in Craigville, a 1950 and 60s boarding house/summer resort, where many wonderful memories were made for our extended family and friends.

She enjoyed playing cards with her friends but, most of all, she enjoyed being with her family.
