OBITUARY ~ ETHEL ARRENA (STILL) DOOLITTLE

Ethel Arrena (STILL) DOOLITTLE, daughter of Leonard Leu and Mary Ellen (PARKER) STILL, was born in rural Ringgold county on July 7, 1921 and passed away July 7, 2004 at the Ringgold County Hospital in Mount Ayr, Iowa. Ethel was 83 years old.

On June 15, 1937, Ethel was united in marriage to Clifford Dorman DOOLITTLE. To this union three sons were born, Clifford LeRoy (Roy), Larry Leu and Melvin Eugene. In 1958, Steven LeRoy DOOLITTE, age 12, was warmly welcomed as a fourth son.

Cliff and Ethel lived most of their lives on a farm north of Kellerton. In 1995, they moved to town. After Cliff became ill, Ethel spent much of her time at Melvin's where she loved to watch the great-great-grandsons play on the patio.

Ethel was a devoted wife, mother, grandma, and sister. Ethel spent many hours visiting with people at sale barn cafes while Cliff was at the sale. Ethel loved fishing, shopping, traveling, playing pitch, and gardening. Ethel absolutely adored her sons. She loved having her sons and all of their families get together. She cooked up meals with a dash of this and a pinch of that, enough to feed an army. The grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her greatest joy. She loved each and every one of them: nine grandchildren, Connie, Debbie, Brenda, Penni, Teena, Valerie, Jeff, Michele and Mark; 10 great-grandchildren: LaDawna, Michael, Chad, Travis, Tiffany, Terry, Troy, Ben, Aric, Amber, Katy, Koty, Jeffery, Cody, Chase, Stephanie, Dustin, Emilianne and Kraig; eight great-great-grandchildren: Aleigha, Tristan, Darrian, Wyatt, Kaidan, Haleigh, Travis and Abbigal.

Ethel was preceded in death by her parents; husband Cliff on December 31, 2001; son Roy on November 30, 1966; sister Emma (STILL) MUPRHY; brothers, Guy, Ray and George STILL; and longtime friend Inez GARWOOD.

She will be sadly missed by her sons Larry and wife Beth DOOLITTLE of Redding, Melvin and wife Judy DOOLITTLE and Steven and wife Janice DOOLITTLE, all of Kellerton; nine grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren; brothers Eldon and wife Jan STILL and Ed STILL and friend Glenda, all of Mount Ayr, and Lee and wife Genevieve STILL of Conesville, Iowa; and sisters Leucena KOBBE and Joyce and husband Jim JOHNSON, all of Mount Ayr; longtime friend Jason GARWOOD; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Funeral services were held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, July 10, 2004 at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa with Pastor Kathy JOHNSTON officiating.
