Gail Stucky, who retired from the Bethel library in 2019 but continued as a volunteer forensics coach, died Nov. 15 in Newton at age 64 from complications of multiple myeloma.

She was born and grew up in Newton, attending Sunset Elementary School, Newton High School and Bethel College, from which she graduated in 1981 with a double major in English and history. She was a gifted student, who won many honors in debate and forensics competitions.

Stucky was part of a family of dedicated Bethel supporters. Her parents, Clarence and Gladys (Schmidt) Niles, and older sister, Jan Niles, were all graduates, in 1950, 1951 and 1978, respectively.
