Ethel R. Wire

May 10, 1929April 28, 2014

Ethel Romberger Wire, 84, of Camp Hill, entered into eternal rest on Monday, April 28 at Carolyn Croxton Slane Hospice residence surrounded by her devoted, loving children. She was born on May 10, 1929 in Camp Hill, a daughter of Austin and Elizabeth (Koons) Romberger. Ethel was preceded in rest by a daughter, JoAnne E. Billups, a grandchild, Adam L. Billups, four brothers and two sisters. She is survived by her son, Ralph Wm. Wire, Jr. of Mechanicsburg, her daughter, Dianne L. Hutchinson of Riverside, PA, her grandson, Joshua Caine Hutchinson of Benton, PA, her sister, Susan Edwards of Dallas, TX and many nieces and nephews. If ever there was an angel on earth, it was Ethel Wire. Always there for whoever needed her, she was a devoted mother and friend. Family meant the world to her. A blessing to the world, Ethel knew how to laugh and have fun. She was one class act who vacationed at Disney and never paused in her schedule of walking Chip, her beloved Husky. Ethel was a phenomenal cook, gardener and seamstress - one of the free spirited girls who held strongly to her beliefs. It was a joy to be in her company, with her inner strength, passions and inspirational courage to be vulnerable. Ethel Lucille Romberger Wire will be severely missed. A Celebration of Life will be held at 3:00 PM, Sunday May 4, 2014 at Neill Funeral Home, 3401 Market St. Camp Hill with visitation from 2:00 to 3:00 prior to service.

Dianne and Bill, I am so sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of your family and spending time at your house with JoAnne. I loved the many sleep- overs especially when your mother would let us sleep on the trampoline. When we were too loud, your mother would run out in her nightgown and quiet us. I always had fun at your house. She is now with her family on the other side, but I am sure, watching over you.
