Etta Normand (1900–1984), born Etta Cromwell, lived in Manitoba, Canada. After she married Guy Long she moved her family to Caton, New York and became naturalized.

During her years of mothering and grand mothering she worked as an L.P.N. in the first Corning Hospital. One of her loves of life was quilting. Her most beautiful quilts and clothes were made from men’s ties. Good repurposing?!
