After a lifetime of generosity and a burst of national fame, Ethel Preston lost her six month battle with breast cancer at the age of 63.
Ethel was the mother of Bobby Shatford, one of the Gloucester fisherman chronicled in the best selling book and movie "The Perfect Storm".
Long before the book or the movie, Ethel was well known by all that knew her as the "mother to many" because of her constant generosity to all.
She was portrayed by actress Janet Wright in the movie "The Perfect Storm".

I wanted to say that I'm sorry about your son being lost at sea but I find that you are gone now too. I hope that you had a nice reunion with Bobby and that your heart is at peace now.
