Ethel Fasch ’52 Salamone

Ethel M. (Fasch) Salamone of New Brunswick, New Jersey, age 89, beloved church member, dedicated community soup kitchen volunteer, theological seminary library volunteer, teacher, cook and baker extraordinaire passed into the nearer presence of God on January 13, 2020.

Born and raised in New Brunswick, Ethel earned a B.A. from Hope College (Holland, Michigan). Professionally, Ethel was an educator who taught English and German at the secondary-school level. After meeting and marrying the love of her life, Carl J. Salamone, the two of them enjoyed spending time with Carl’s family and traveling the world. Ethel was predeceased by her husband, Carl J. Salamone, who died in 2004.

Ethel never stopped caring for the less-fortunate in her community, as evidenced by her faithful service in preparing and serving meals at Elijah’s Promise, a New Brunswick, NJ based community kitchen. Ethel was also active in the church congregations she attended and prepared many meals for church functions. She was a member of the First Reformed Church, New Brunswick. A dedicated woman-of-faith, learner, reader, and lover of classical music, Ethel spent her senior years in community and church service, and will be greatly missed by all whose lives she touched.
