Ethel Snodgrass (d. 2097) was the wife of Ted Snodgrass and the first cousin of Myrtle Bentley. Unlike Myrtle, Ethel stayed in her home of Elizabeth, Virginia. She played host to Myrtle and her granddaughter Beckie Royer in 2097. A few days after Myrtle and Beckie arrived, Virginia and its neighbor Ohio went to war. Ohio launched its offensive by releasing a tailored strain of measles into Virginia. The whole of the state was put under quarantine. Myrtle and Beckie were forced to stay withe Snodgrasses rather than return to California.
Ethel eventually caught the measles, and died.
