Ethel O'Dell Zebron of Tuxedo, N.Y., passed away Wednesday, March 6, 2019, at her home in Southfields, N.Y. She was 87.

Daughter of the late Edgar and Dora Barnes O'Dell, she was born Aug. 6, 1931, in Tuxedo.

Ethel was the widow of Joseph Zebron. She retired from Avon Products of Suffern, N.Y., where she worked for over 30 years. She was a member of the Tuxedo Silver Dollars Senior Group and Sloatsburg United Methodist Church.

Survivors include her daughters, Wendy Matthews and her husband, Roy, of Carole Stream, Ill., Karen McGrady and her husband, David of Southfields; sons, David Schultz and his wife, Tracey, of Oakland, Tenn., and Allan Schultz of Eads, Ten..; sister, Priscilla Baker of Warwick, N.Y.; grandchildren, Matthew McGrady and his wife, Maria, of Newburgh, N.Y., Charles Schultz and his wife, LaMista, of Arizona, Mark McGrady and his wife, Lauren, of North Carolina, Sarah Tran and her partner, Hein, of Illinois, Adam McGrady and his wife, Shannon, of Goshen, N.Y., Brandon Schultz of Tennessee, and Aaron McGrady and his wife, Erin, of Chester, N.Y., as well as nine great-grandchildren.

Ethel was predeceased by her brothers Bradley and Roger O'Dell.

Ethel could always be found on Friday mornings getting her hair done in Rose's chair (Studio 17), or at the Orange Top, enjoying her coffee and an English muffin. She lived in the same home for over 60 years, and the pride of ownership shined brightly throughout. Ethel loved her family more than anything in the world. You always knew where to go if you needed your sweet tooth fixed, Grams House or Grandma on the hill. Her loved ones know that whenever they see a frog, Ethel is watching. Her love of frogs, stuffed or stone, will never be forgotten.

Visitation was held March 15 at Smith, Seaman and Quackenbush Funeral Home, Monroe, N.Y. A Chapel Service followed in the funeral home officiated by Rev. Ross Topliff. Cremation took place at Cedar Hill Crematory, Middle Hope, N.Y.

Memorial donations may be made to Sloatsburg United Methodist Church, 93 Orange Turnpike, Sloatsburg, NY 10974; or American Heart Association, PO Box 3049, Syracuse, NY 13220.
