BELLVILLE: Madeline Sohl's kind and loving heart was woven into the fabric of her family. Offering advice, Madeline was always available for guidance and wise direction. As a believer in Jesus Christ, Madeline S. Sohl fought the good fight and on Monday, April 20, 2015, she finished her race, after passing away unexpectedly in Ohio Health MedCentral Mansfield Hospital. She was 89.
The daughter of Frederick and May (Kilgore) Reynolds, Madeline was born May 15, 1925 in Mansfield.
On August 11, 1941 she married Charles Sohl.
Madeline was retired from Therm-O-Disc.
Knitting and crocheting, she made coats, dresses, bedspreads and hundreds of afghans over her lifetime. In one year alone she made 40 afghans for a friend.
Baking the best desserts, Madeline's red velvet cake and strawberry pie were family favorites. Taking spring trips to Michigan, Madeline loved mushroom hunting. Also hunting locally, she had the uncanny ability to even spot wild mushrooms from the road.
