Mary Elizabeth "Marybeth" Caddell, 67, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2020, after an extended battle with metastatic breast cancer. She was born Feb. 5, 1952, in Wisconsin to Victor and Luella Musche.
She was married to Richard "Rick" Caddell Jr. on Aug. 25, 1985, surrounded by loving family and friends.
A genuine, caring and giving person, Marybeth was smart, funny, and an avid reader. She loved spending time with her husband catfishing on the Tennessee River and loved to take visitors fishing, enjoying the rivers natural beauty. She always had a humorous story to share or a good book to suggest. She was friendly to everyone she met, a great listener, and had sage advice for her kids (when they listened). She said to always have dessert, even if you didn't finish dinner, because you never know what life will bring. Marybeth was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Dayton, Tennessee. She was involved in bible study and a member of the Sunday school class. She was strong in her faith, enjoying the fellowship of the church.
Marybeth earned a Bachelor of Liberal Studies from Purdue University in 1991. For many years Marybeth worked at Weil-McLain, in Michigan City, Ind., as a customer service associate.
Later in life, she earned an Associate of Science in Radiography and went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences in 2006. This career suited her outgoing and caring attitude, inquisitive nature, and love of learning.
