E. Lucile Stickel

July 11, 1924-Jan. 7, 2013

WAKARUSA —  E. Lucile Stickel, 88, died at 9:07 p.m. Monday at Miller’s Merry Manor, Wakarusa, with her family gathered around. Her death was due to complications from a 2005 car accident directly resulting in a stroke.

Lucile was born July 11, 1924, daughter of Roscoe and Grace (Overholser) Stickel.

She is survived by a brother, Arthur Stickel, Wakarusa; three sisters, Pauline Stickel Nusbaum, Goshen, Miriam Stickel Hawks and Ruby Stickel, both of Wakarusa; nephews, David Stickel, Randy, Bruce and Kent Nusbaum, Dan and Terry Hawks; and three nieces, Sandy Lechlitner, Renee Nusbaum and Debra Schmidt.

She was preceded in death by her parents; an infant brother, Robert Earl; sister, Dorcas Stickel; and sister-in-law, Bertha Martin Stickel.

She was employed as a service worker at Boris Smolers for 40 years after which Lucile worked at several day care centers where she was able to do her true life’s work — working with children. She also volunteered at both Miller’s Merry Manor in Wakarusa and The Window in Goshen for many years.

Lucile was a lifetime member of the Baugo Church of the Brethren, taught in the children’s Sunday school for 40 years and served on various commissions throughout the years. She was a camp counselor at Camp Alexander Mack.

The family will receive friends from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Rieth-Rohrer-Ehret-Lienhart Funeral Home, 117 W. Waterford St., Wakarusa, where the funeral service will take place at 10:30 a.m. Friday. Pastor David Stackhouse of Baugo Church of the Brethren will officiate. Burial will be at Olive Cemetery, West Side.
