Ada B. Hale, 74, of Upperco, died Sunday, Jan. 20, 2013, at Carroll Hospice's Dove House in Westminster.

Born April 21, 1938, on the family farm in Parkton, she was the daughter of the late Olen Leon and Goldie Marie Thompson Bull. She was the wife of Lewis "Bucky" Hale, her husband of 57 years.

She was a homemaker, farmer and an accomplished seamstress making everything from wedding gowns to upholstering furniture. For many years she and her husband sold vegetables that they grew on their farm, at the corner of Falls and Mount Carmel roads.

After retiring, she enjoyed bingo, jewelry making, gardening, bird watching, crocheting and bus trips. She was an active member of the North Carroll and Reisterstown senior centers, where she enjoyed many hours with her friends.

Surviving, in addition to her husband, are daughters and son-in-law Barbara J. and Scott M. Myers, and Sheila M. McCardell, all of Hampstead; grandchildren Chad and Stacy Myers, and Mark Austin McCardell, all of Hampstead, and Briar and Ivy Hale, of Virginia; brothers and sisters Floyd Bull, of Littlestown, Pa., Jane Thompson and Howard Bull, both of Westminster, Roland Bull, of Delaware, Walter Bull, of Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., David Bull and Dorothy Bosley, both of Hampstead, and Rachel Lyons, of Manchester; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by a son, Lewis "Junior" Hale; and siblings Paul, Earl and Edith JoAnn Bull, Florence Fox and Nancy Beall.

Per her wishes, there will be no visitation. Interment will be held at a later date in Forest Ridge Cemetery in Upperco.
