Obituary of Ethel Plimack
Ethel Plimack passed away peacefully just two weeks before her 108th birthday. She was much loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed.
Ethel was a woman with an indomitable spirit. She worked for more than 40 years with the NYC Board of Education and after retirement she worked at Marymount Manhattan College until 96 years of age. Ethel was an exceptional knitter, making many hundreds of sweaters, hats and scarves for family and friends. In her younger years, she was an avid folk dancer, traveling the world to learn new dances and meet others who shared her passion for dance.
Ethel was persistent, tenacious, indefatigable, and a lifelong learner. She never hesitated to take on a project. Her life was an example of strength, courage, and enthusiasm for life.
Ethel was married 42 years to Maurice Plimack who predeceased her in 1975. She is survived by her daughters Sylvia Plimack Mangold and Janet Sherman, her son Henry Plimack, her four grandchildren, James Mangold, Ulysses Sherman, Chloe Sherman and Andrew Mangold and her five great grandchildren.
A graveside service will be held 11:00 am on Friday, November 9, 2018 at Linden Hill Cemetery, 52-22 Metropolitan Avenue, Ridgewood, NY.
