Peoria, IL - Ethel M. Prall, 102, of Peoria, IL, formerly of Whiting, NJ, passed away Friday morning, January 19, 2018, at home with her loving family by her side.

She was born August 17, 1915, the daughter of Thomas A. and Susan DuPree Moore.

After graduating at age 16 from Clifton High School in NJ and attending Marot Jr. College in Thompson, CT, she started working at a financial institution in NYC, commuting every day from her home in NJ. She then was offered a secretarial position at Wright Aeronautical Corporation in Paterson, NJ, where she met, and worked for, her future husband.

Ethel married Horace G. "Duke" Prall in Suffern, NY in 1936.

She was a wonderful wife, mother and homemaker. A licensed landscape gardener, she was also a member of the Whiting, NJ Garden Club, giving television presentations on the art of flower arranging. Ethel's passion for creating beautiful flower arrangements led her to compete in the Philadelphia Flower Show, where she won several blue ribbons. Above all, she will be remembered for her positive attitude and beautiful smile.

Ethel is survived by her daughter, Virginia "Ginger" and son-in-law, Ron Castillo, of Peoria, IL; four grandchildren, five great granddaughters, one niece, and two great nieces.

Ethel was preceded in death by her husband and daughter, Barbara Granger, of Southern Pines, NC.

A family gathering will be held this summer to celebrate her life.
