She was born June 12, 1921, in Townsville, Queensland, Australia, a daughter of the late John and Ethel Mary (Batten) Williams. In March 1945 during World War II, Ethel met her future husband, Raymond E. Shutt, whose naval ship resupplied in Australia. They met at a dance hosted by the Australian Red Cross. Ethel and Raymond got engaged in August 1945.

On June 2, 1947, Ethel left Sydney, Australia, and came to the United States, where she and Raymond were married on July 19, 1947. They celebrated 60 years of marriage and made two return visits to Australia before his death on Jan. 15, 2008.

While living in Australia, Ethel worked as a waitress and for the Australian Red Cross. Once in the United States, Ethel and Raymond spent more than 20 years living in the East End of Williamsport before moving to Allenwood in 1972. Ethel became a U.S. citizen on May 9, 1996.

She was a member of Allenwood Presbyterian Church.

Ethel enjoyed gardening, sewing, knitting, baking and spending time with her family.

Surviving are two sons and daughters-in-law, Robert and Evelyn Shutt, of Watsontown, and Eugene and Sharon Shutt, of Montoursville; one daughter, Sharon Rhinehart, of Lancaster; one brother, Joe Williams, of Australia; six grandchildren, Donald Rhinehart III, Robert Rhinehart, Richelle Little, Kristine Allison, Michael Shutt and Melanie Shutt; eight great-grandchildren, Robert Rhinehart Jr., Scottie, Tyler and Zackery Rhinehart, Katelyn and Alexis Shutt and Kolin and Kasen Allison; and one great-great-granddaughter, Lillianna Rhinehart.
