Long Description:
Ethel Ennis is laid to rest in Cairo Cemetery, which is east of Cairo, Oklahoma, having passed away just a few weeks after her 100th birthday and after outliving her husband Rollie by over thirty years. The two share a headstone on the west end of the cemetery.

In the year Ethel was born:
  • The Wright Brothers made their first powered flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. She would live to see the Apollo moon landings less than seventy years later.
  • Cuba leased Guantánamo Bay to the USA "in perpetuity."
  • A fellow named Henry Ford raised $28,000 from twelve investors and established an automobile-manufacturing company. A month later, a physician in Chicago purchased the first Model A.
  • The first Tour de France bicycle race is held.
  • A box of Crayola Crayons contained eight colors and cost a nickel.
