We celebrate the life of Mary Radle who passed away this week, only two days shy of her 103rd birthday.  Mary and husband Woodrow were champions of the outdoors and Bethel Schools. The family requests that, if you desire, memorial donations may be made to the Radle Fund for Science Education, P. O. Box 626, Tipp City, Ohio 45371, or online below.  A reprint of the 2017 biographical sketch by Bruce McKenzie follows.
Each birthday is a gift and worthy of celebration, but 100 years deserves special recognition! It has been said that, “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.” If this is true, Mary Radle is celebrating 100 years of a beautiful life.

Bethel Township was home to the Radle family for decades. It is here that they have chosen to leave a legacy for the community they love. In appreciation of her support, students from the Bethel Local Schools’ science programs created over 75 birthday cards for Mary’s big day….a few are below.

Thank you, Mary, for enriching the lives of others through your generosity!

Donate Here to the Radle Family Fund for Science Education

Established in 2007, the Radle Family Fund for Science Education provides assistance with science and conservation activities for the Bethel Local Schools, which could include scholarships for students or faculty, materials in the science classroom, or student-initiated projects within the community. Woodrow and Mary Radle called Bethel Township “home” since 1946; it is here that they raised their two children.
