Janelle Eccleston was born December 24, 1955 to Ronald Eccleston and the late Janice Jackson (Stutz). She accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior at an early age.

She loved to write and had several articles published. She opened her home and heart to anyone in need, including animals! To know Janelle was to know she loved her cats! From the blue waters of the Ocean to the murky Great Lake, she was a true beach bum – she loved to swim and soak in the rays, and had the freckles to prove it. She loved to travel, having lived in cities from Ohio to Massachusetts to Florida, and made life long friends wherever she went along the way.

Janelle Eccleston transitioned peacefully on September 6, 2019 at her home in Cleveland Heights surrounded by family. Janelle is survived by her father, Ronald Eccleston of Kure Beach, N. Carolina; her three siblings, Rhonda Boozer (Stan) of N. Ridgeville, Timothy Eccleston (Louise) of Broken Arrow, OK, Bryon Eccleston (Patti) of Valley Mills, TX; her three children, Larry Eccleston of Elyria, Jada Eccleston of Cleveland Heights, and Leesa Eccleston of Cleveland; 6 Granddaughters, Ashley, Ellexus, Amber, Imani, Kiaira and Kiasia; ten great grandchildren( one whom proceeded her in death) and a host of nieces and nephews.

Dale Ganz has gone to that great opera stage in the sky where the singers and the music are spectacular and he is watching with friends and family, looking forward to sharing a great meal post-theater. Dale’s loves were music, laughter, his parents, siblings, cousins and friends, and ultimately his marvelous wife Nancy.

Dale was born in 1956 and grew up in Gibbon, Nebraska. He graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1978. Dale then won the Corbett Opera Competition which entitled him to a full scholarship to the University of Cincinnati where he received his Master’s degree and his Opera Diploma in performance.

Dale then embarked upon an operatic career. He performed extensively, singing over 20 different roles, including over 50 performances of the role of Bartolo in Rossini’s The Barber of Seville. The Barber of Seville, like Dale, has proved to be a masterpiece of comedy within music, so the role of Bartolo was ideal.

In 1997, Dale joined the music faculty at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas. In 1999, he married the love of his life, Nancy Maultsby, and together they made a happy home in Manhattan. Dale received tenure in 2003 and he continued to teach, loving his work and his amazing student singers until 2013.

Dale passed away on September 2, 2019, and was preceded in death by his parents, James and Doris Ruth Ganz. He is survived by his wife, Nancy, two brothers: James Jr. (Kathy) of Kearney, Nebraska and William (Rebecca) of Tucson, Arizona; three sisters: Sara of San Francisco, California, Kathryn (Norvell Brasch) of Denver, Colorado; and Georgia (David Lambert) of Brainerd, Minnesota; eleven nieces and nephews, two great-nieces, and one great-nephew. This crowd of survivors plus scores of extended family members and friends have each and every one been enriched, entertained, and honored to hold Dale as one of their own.

The family wishes to thank the amazing folks at the Ames Family Hospice House, who took such great care of Dale. We are forever grateful for their generosity and for the extraordinary care they all gave to him. No services will be held at this time. Any memorials are suggested to the Ames Family Hospice House, 30080 Hospice Way, Westlake, Ohio 44145


Frances G. Ruschel, 84, born December 1, 1934 on the West Side of Cleveland, died August 17, 2019 in her assisted living apartment at Legacy Place in Parma Ohio. She was relatively healthy and very mobile until shortly before her death. She was the only child of Gizella (nee Kovacs) and Frank Dvorak, and for about 14 years the only grandchild of her immigrant grandparents who were from Hungary, Bohemia, and Slovakia—all on the West Side of Cleveland—thus she was always visiting and close to those families. She married John R. Ruschel (1931-2010) in 1955 who was from Washington PA and in the U.S. Navy at the time; they met while he was on leave and staying with one of his sisters Jean who lived nearby in Cleveland. Together Frances and John had seven children: John, Brian, Frank, Donna, Gary, Diana, and Paul (Paul died in 2017). Grandchildren are Frank, Kyle, Hannah, Emma, and the late Elizabeth. Her husband worked for and retired from Ohio Bell; they raised their children mainly in Parma. Frances had a private funeral and burial at Holy Cross Cemetery.
