Obituary of Ethel M. Mayville

Ethel Mayville, 70, of Tupper Lake, NY passed away on May 7, 2022. Ethel “Buttercup” was born on August 21, 1951, in Saranac Lake, NY, the daughter of Edgar Edward Mayville and Ethel Sawyer. She was predeceased by her parents and her two sisters, Violet Mcgillvray of Kerkville NY, and Pearl Dashairs of Brasher Falls NY. Ethel spent most of her life residing in Tupper Lake, and made many friends and acquaintances. She spent a short time before her passing in Madrid, NY. Ethel had a smile that could light up the room, infectious laughter, and a uniquely colorful way of letting you know how she was feeling. Ethel enjoyed her collections of purses and jewelry. She was a lady who enjoyed the simple pleasures in life, such as going on scenic rides in her community, shopping at the dollar store and garage sales, and rocking in her chair with her favorite blanket and listening to her favorite music. Ethel was loved and endeared by all who worked and cared for her, and friends old and new. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Tupper Lake Rescue Squad. A viewing will be held on Thursday May 12, 2022, from 1:00pm – 3:00pm, at the Frary Funeral Home in Tupper Lake, NY. A Catholic burial will be held at the St. Alphonsus cemetary on May 21, 2022.
