WALDOBORO – Ethelyn Barbour-Shultz, peacefully joined her husband, Ronnie Barbour, Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2006, after courageously battling cancer for six years. She was born Dec. 31, 1939. Ethelyn Ralph married Ronnie Barbour, Aug. 31, 1957. Until his death in 2002, they enjoyed dancing, attending church and attending their grandchildren’s extra-curricular events. Devoted to her family, Ethelyn worked in the home for 22 years. In 1979 she began working at Moody’s Cabins and Diner. Her pastry baking landed her on the front page of The New York Times Style section in 1993 and on the Food Channel in 2004. However, her pride in her culinary accolades paled in comparison to her pride in her family. She recently remarried to George B. Shultz Jr., April 2006 and retired from “the Diner,” July 2006. She was predeceased by her father, Ward Ralph. She is survived by her mother, Muriel Teirila of Warren; three sisters, Betty Cunningham of Waldoboro, Beverly Boivin of Warren and Marion MacMahan of Owl’s Head; her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Scott Barbour and wife, Ashley, Daniel, Nicole and Kaydence Barbour of Jefferson and Okinawa, Japan, Amanda Barbour and Chloe Achorn of Waldoboro, Kim Brown and husband, Buddy, Ben, Nicole, Jayden Brown and Lydia Brown of Nobleboro, Zachery and Melissa Brown of Somer-ville, Glenn Barbour and wife, Dawna, Glenn Barbour and fiance, Jessica Simmons and Brittany Barbour of Waldoboro, Melissa Barbour and Beston Barbour Simpson of Nobleboro, Ronnie, Laurie and Asher Barbour of Waldoboro; and her husband, George B.
