There she met her future husband, Major L. Warner Crow of Lostine. They were married on Nov. 5, 1944. After the end of World War II, the newlyweds moved to Oregon, where Warner Crow joined his father, Michael, and brothers, Melvin and Victor, in running the family business – M. Crow & Co. – in Lostine, where Ethel Crow also worked.

She was a member of the Lostine Presbyterian Church and maintained the church bulletin for over 50 years.

She loved to spend time with her family, including time camping, fishing and attending sporting events. She was an avid bowler for many years. Mrs. Crow loved reading, writing poetry, gardening and word games, and having two poems published later in life gave her much pleasure.
