Ethel was born in Keokuk Iowa. Her parents were Axel F. Swanson and Mary Peterson Swanson.

In June 12, 1919 she married Oscar who just came back from World War 1. After living a little while in Dunn North Dakota, they moved back to Des Moines Iowa, the same area where they originally got married.

In 1920, their first daughter was born, Evelyn and in 1924, they had their second daughter, Margaret. They also adopted a son, Abas.

Later, in 1944, Ethel and Oscar moved to National City, California where Oscar was the evening cook at the Adventist Hospital in National City. Ethel often came to help Oscar cook. In the morning, there were two cooks but in the evening, Oscar was the only one. So Ethel was able to help out.
