HALL, Ethel "Butch" Gale, 69, of Wintersville, passed away Saturday, February 23, 2013, at her home.
She was born July 29, 1943, in Adena, Ohio, a daughter of the late Leonard and Lila Mae (Schucht) Stillwagon.
In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her siblings, Peggy, William, Leonard Jr., and James Stillwagon, and Bonita Stocking.
Ethel lost her courageous battle of life to cancer. As Dr. Rahman told her "She was one tough cookie." Ethel enjoyed life and made the most of every opportunity that life threw her way. She loved to throw darts, attending Nascar races, and was an avid Cowboys fan. She was so proud of each of her children and their accomplishments and loved them so much. The family would like to thank all the nurses and the staff at the Tony Teramana Cancer Center and Charity Hospice and a special thanks to her niece Lori Ann Bennington for all the sacrifices she made for Ethel during her struggles.
She is survived by her children, Jack Gale of Florida, Mayor Robert (Janine) Gale of Wintersville, Tammy (Larry) Pruitt of Florida, and John (Mary) Gale of Wintersville; grand children, Garrett, Brianne, Barry, Chris and Julie Gale, Cristin and Davey Hunt; nine great-grandchildren; sisters, Beverly Mansfield, Nancy Beach, Shirley Ridgeway, Mary Jane Able, and Janet (Walter) Mansfield; brothers, Roy (Sherry), Randy (Brenda), and John (Janie) Stillwagon.
Friends will be received at the Everhart-Bove Funeral Home, 685 Canton Road, Wintersville on Saturday March 2, 2013 from 11 a.m. until time of the memorial service at 1 p.m. with Pastor Clint Quillen officiating.
