Obituary

The earth lost an angel and heaven gained one on February 28, 2019, when Ethel
Casteel left this world and was called to heaven. Ethel was a kind, loving, generous, and
thoughtful wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She loved God, her church, her
family, her community, all types of word games, especially Scrabble, reading, quilting,
game shows, and cheering on the Chicago Cubs and the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Ethel was born on January 7, 1923 in rural Iowa County, Iowa, where she also grew up.
She spent most of her life in North English, Iowa, a community she loved and
supported, until 2016, when she decided it was time to move to Kirksville, Missouri to
be near two of her daughters. Ethel worked as a waitress, banker, and librarian, but
spent most of her working years alongside her husband, Bob, in their businesses: Bob’s
U-Save, The Grocery Sack, and B&E Bakery. She was a member of the North English
United Methodist Church, United Methodist Women, the VFW Auxiliary, the North
English Library Board, Reflections Book Club, and Faith United Methodist Church.

Ethel married Robert K. Casteel on October 22, 1950. He preceded her in death in 2009.
They were the proud parents of three daughters: Maxine MacDonald (Armel) of Omaha,
Nebraska, Marilyn Romine (Jeff), and Mariann Casteel Gibson, both of Kirksville,
Missouri, who survive them. They are also survived by six grandchildren, Doug
MacDonald, Heidi MacDonald-Zanussi (Tony), Brian Romine (Anne), Amanda Romine
Meeker (Matt), Melaina Gibson, and Trey Gibson. Ethel was also preceded in death by a
sister, Dorothy Hansen.

Memorial gifts may be given in memory of Ethel to Faith United Methodist Church,
Kirksville, Missouri or the English Valley Community Scholarship Fund, Box 143, South
English, IA 52335. Memorial services will be scheduled at a later date in North English
and Kirksville.
