Szczech, Ethel (7 March 1916 - 7 June 2008)

Ethel Szczech, age 92, passed away peacefully in her sleep June 7, 2008, at the Syverson Lutheran Home in Eau Claire.

Ethel was born on March 7, 1916, to Paul and Antoniette Bania. On October 11, 1941, she married George Szczech in Stanley, WI. They lived in Chicago and New Baden, IL, before moving to the Town of Worden where they farmed for 42 years. Ethel was a homemaker and farmwife. She loved her family, gardening, her pets, and was a strong believer in education.

She is survived by one son, Dr. George M. (Jeanette) of Chapel Hill, NC; three daughters: Gloria of Lebanon, PA, Vicky (Dave) Price of Pewaukee, WI; Celia (Wayne) Sime of Eau Clarie, WI; five grandchildren: Bridget (James) Paschal, Timothy (Jennifer) Szczech, Jason Szczech, Valerie (John) Gabrysiak, and Eve (Kevin) Lindsay; three great-grand-children: Ethan Paschal, John William and Andros James Gabrysiak; and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, six brothers and two sisters.

Private services were held at the Stokes and Mundt Funeral Home on June 9th.

The family would like to thank the kind caregivers at Syverson Nursing Home and the Saint Joseph’s Hospice Staff.
