Ethel I. DiMaria, 72, of Melbourne died Tuesday (4/22) at Holmes Regional Medical Center. A native of Staten Island, NY, she came to the Melbourne area from New York in 1990. Ethel had worked as an Aid in the New York Psychiatric Hospital before retiring. Ethel enjoyed playing cards and swimming, but was most happy being at home and making it a happy and inviting place for others. A catholic, Ethel was an active member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Melbourne.
Ethel is survived by her husband of 54 years, Louis.
For friends who wish, Louis suggests memorial donations to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, 1710 Hickory St., Melbourne, FL 32901, in lieu of flowers.
