MIDDLEPORT - Estelle Marguerite Ralph, 84, was born on March 29, 1922 in Meigs County to Sherley and Kathryn Saunders Mulford and departed this life on Nov. 18, 2006 at her daughter's home in Pataskala, Ohio.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband of 60 years, Wesley Maxwell Ralph, a brother S.R. Mulford, and a nephew Michael Mulford.
Left to mourn her passing is her daughter Janet and Roy Pine of Pataskala, one granddaughter Tanya and Mark Hattcher of Mason, Ohio, a grandson Ty and Tedra Pine of Upper Arlington, Ohio, five great grandchildren Nicole, Ashley, Rachael and Noah Hattcher and Avery Pine; and a sister Delila Mulford of Middleport.
Estelle attended Rutland and Old Bethel Freewill Baptist Churches. She married "Mack" in 1940 and while he served his country during World War II she wrote a daily letter to him showing her faithfulness and devotion. They made their home on Roush Lane in Cheshire for many years before moving to Middleport.
Having given her heart to Christ at a young age she served God with all her heart and was steadfast in her Christian belief.
