It is with a sad heart that we learned of the passing of one of Goshen's most beloved teacher and guidance counselor. She was the matriarch of one of
Goshen's most prolific family of teachers with four of her children and son in laws teaching at Goshen during the late 60's and seventies. Ethel helped make
Goshen the excellent school it is today. We offer our most sincere condolences to her family and close friends.
Ethel Lee Eastridge, age 95, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 10, 2017 at her home in Leesburg, FL surrounded by her family.
She was the devoted wife of the late Clarence “Shorty” Eastridge for 76 years, who preceded her in death on November 4, 2016.
Ethel was the loving mother and mother-inlaw to Patricia and Gary Teague, Leesburg, FL and Judy and Willie Cobb Jr. of Longboat Key, FL.
Patty and Gary Teague were also teachers at Goshen High School, as well as Willie and Judy Cobb. Ethel retired from Goshen Local Schools in 1983
with over 30 years of service in the teaching and counseling fields in both Kentucky and Ohio. She went on to enjoy nearly 35 years of retirement with Shorty
in Leesburg, FL. Ethel learned to paint in her golden years and created many beautiful oil paintings for her family. She cherished lake time fishing with Shorty
and her grandchildren and treasured visits from friends and family. She was an avid sports fan and loved “coaching” the Cincinnati Reds and KY Wildcats
on TV from her recliner with Shorty. Ethel was a member of First Baptist Church, Leesburg, FL.
