Ethel Mae Buchenroth, 86, passed away at Logan Acres, surrounded by family, on December 24, 2017. She was born September 13, 1931 to the late Venard V. Hurley and the late Lula Belle Davis Hurley of Bellefontaine, Ohio. Ethel was a 1949 graduate of Huntsville High School and married her high school sweetheart Joe E. Buchenroth on December 11, 1949, who preceded her in death on February 29, 2004. She is survived by five children - Bonnie (Dwight) Hansen of Bellefontaine, Cindy (Jack) Beuschlein and Kerry (Kim) Buchenroth of Lewistown, Susie (Eric) Whetsel of Bellefontaine, and Steve Buchenroth (fiancée Robin Brandewie) of Huntsville, 12 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews and great- and great-great nieces and nephews to whom she was affectionately known as Aunt Tommy).

Ethel was active in various organizations throughout her life, including the Logan County Genealogical Society and the Logan County Historical Society, several home demonstration/Family Community Education clubs, Kings Daughters, and Indian Lake Women Who Care.  Ethel was especially proud of her work on the Underground Railroad for the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Societies. She was able to glean and save valuable information on the UGRR. She was an avid supporter of her children and grandchildren in all endeavors – sports, education, and careers. Ethel loved to travel with her husband and lived for family gatherings. Family was very dear to her. Over the years she was a member at the Hopewell, Huntsville, and Lewistown United Methodist Churches.
