"She was a gutsy mother, very gutsy. That’s the thing I admired in her the most. Everything in life is priorities. Her children were her first major priority." - Photographer Peter Beard.
[Ethel] was a Skakel. As a Skakel, she inherited a healthy disregard for authority in all its forms. - Chris Kennedy
