Ada Pauline Schrock, 88, of Archbold, Ohio, died Nov. 24, 2011, at Greencroft Health Center in Goshen, Ind.

Ada and Joe operated her father’s farm near Pettisville until 1964, when they moved with their five children to Zone, Ohio. She and the children then assisted Joe with the care and maintenance of the Franklin Township School.

After retirement, Ada and Joe moved to Archbold. She was a charter member and elder of Zion Mennonite Church.

    FAYETTE resident Patricia Stambaugh, 64, was declared dead on the scene of a single-vehicle accident Friday morning south of Morenci. Rescue units were called around 9 a.m., but as of Tuesday, law enforcement officers had not yet determined the time of the accident. According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, Stambaugh was driving west on U.S. 20 when her Chevrolet Malibu traveled off the north side of the road and down a steep embankment, coming to rest in Bean Creek (Tiffin River).
  • Athletic Fields
    SPORTS COMPLEX—Fayette’s outdoor athletic facilities will include three ball fields for summer recreation leagues at the southwest corner of the school. The baseball and softball fields, along with the running track, will be constructed on the east side of the school. Outdoor athletic fields were not part of the new school project from 2007, but voters approved a $1.4 million levy for a school addition and the sports fields last August. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by July 20.
