How Did We Do?

Ethel B. Hershey, 80 of Utica, died Thursday, September 13, 2018 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Home in Rushford, following a three month battle with cancer. Ethel was born in Lititz, PA on January 26, 1938 to Ammon and Anna (Bomberger) Shelly. Growing up, she participated in 4H and enjoyed showing her dad's steers. She graduated from Manheim Central High School in 1955. She and Abram Hershey were married August 13, 1955. They farmed in Pennsylvania and operated a trucking service for area farmers until moving to Utica to farm in 1976. Ethel enjoyed tending to her flower and vegetable gardens, playing games with her family, especially Sequence. She enjoyed cooking for and entertaining guests in her home and her hospitality was a blessing to so many. She enjoyed her children and family and served them with a mother's tender love and care.

Ethel attended Spring Valley Mennonite Church when she first moved to the area. She later became an active member of St. Charles Bible Church, serving in many areas such as missions treasurer, AWANA volunteer, ladies fellowship and kitchen hospitality. She trusted in Christ as her Savior at a young age and dedicated her life to serving Him through serving others.

Survivors include her husband, Abram, six children, Marlin (Joy) Hershey of LaPorte City, IA, Ken (Jean) Hershey of Rochester, Lucy (John) Yoder of Jackson, KY, James (JoAnn) Hershey of Maple Grove, a daughter-in-law Irene Hershey of Lititz, PA, Darrell (Suzanne) Hershey of Utica and Roy (Rachel) Hershey of St. Ansgar, IA, 20 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, two brothers, Mervin Shelly and Wilmer Shelly and a sister Reba Nolt. She is preceded in death by her parents Ammon and Anna Shelly, her son Nelson Hershey, and a grandson Collin Hershey
