Ethel M. Mosier
February 28, 1927 ‒ January 18, 2019
Mount Gilead, Ohio
Ethel M. Mosier, age 91, of Mount Gilead, passed away Friday morning, January 18, 2019, at the Arbors at Delaware.
On February 28, 1927, Ethel was born in Fredericktown, OH, the only child of the late Emery Kelly and Florice D. (Palmer) Chubb. She graduated from Martel High School.
Ethel married Allen J. “Mo” Mosier on November 17, 1945. They shared nearly 36 years as husband and wife before he preceded her in death on November 12, 1981.
A woman of faith, Ethel had formerly been a member of the Iberia United Methodist Church.
For 40 plus years, Ethel provided child care in her home. She took care of and potty trained an abundance of Mount Gilead children in her lifetime. She was also known for ironing and doing alterations on clothing for anyone who needed it.
Ethel was very involved in Girl Scouts as her daughters grew up. For many years she was the Cookie Chair. A semi would deliver the cookies to her home and she was in charge of getting them to all of the Girl Scouts.
Most Friday and Saturday nights you could find Ethel out square dancing in all of her homemade dance outfits. She also enjoyed camping over the years.
Ethel was a family oriented woman and was especially involved in her grandchildren and great grandchildren’s lives. She was a very caring woman, but extremely stern at the same time. You followed her rules. She was always just a phone call away when you needed help with anything.
She is survived by her three children: Alice (Ron) Turner of Galion, Charles “Chuck” (Della) Mosier of Mount Gilead, Dorothy McKinney of Mount Gilead; four grandchildren: Jenny (Mike) Conkle, Teresa Staley, Angie (Steve) High, Crystal (Scott) Rowe; ten great grandchildren: Alissa (Mike) Carey, Brian Conkle, Hayden Reymer, Karcy Reymer, Scott Frazier, Kristin (Austin Pettigrew) Staley, Brandon (Allie Jowers) Rowe, Hannah Frazier, Alex Staley, Cody Rowe; and four great-great grandchildren: Ethan, Ellie, Brooke and Nathan.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her step-father, Lloyd Chubb and a grandson-in-law, Brent Staley.
Ethel’s family will greet friends from 1 – 3 p.m. on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, at the Snyder Funeral Homes, Craven Chapel, 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead. Services to honor and celebrate her life will begin there at 3:00 p.m. with Pastor Jeff Canankamp officiating. Burial will follow in Iberia Cemetery.
