In Memory: Aug. 12

Ada Othella Wyatt Binger, 101, Vero Beach

Ada Othella Wyatt Binger, 101, of Vero Beach, was born Oct. 10, 1918, in Chrisman, Ill., and died of natural causes on Aug. 5, 2020.

Ada raised her family on the family farm, Collington Meadows, in Hall (now Bowie), Md.

She worked for some time at Sears Restaurant and later for Nationwide Ins. Co. from which she retired.

During retirement, she and her husband, James Edward Binger, spent several years in western Maryland having a summer cottage on Deep Creek Lake and later a permanent home in Oakland.  Once the harsh cold winters took their toll, they ventured south via North Carolina and Georgia.

She and Edward enjoyed traveling when possible and had a memorable trip together to Hawaii and several to Florida. She later traveled solo to Australia and England.

Her children were very proud of her adventurous spirit.

She is survived by her children, Ethel Binger Burke, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., Rodger William Binger (Kathy), of Davidsonville, Md.,  Betty M Stevens (Tom), of Sebastian, Fla., and Juanita L. Burgess (Ted), of North Palm Beach, Fla. She is also survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Her husband, James Edward Binger, predeceased her on their 64th wedding anniversary in 2000. Her first born, Bruce Edward Binger, predeceased her in 1957.

With much gratitude we extend many thanks to Pelican Garden Assisted Living in Sebastian, FL for the wonderful care the staff provided for six years.  Also, to Hospice House in Vero Beach, FL where mother spent her last couple of days.
