APPELMAN, Gale (nee Nash), age 81, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 26, 2021 in her home with her children by her side. She was born August 5, 1939 in Maysville, KY to Edith Louise Hook and Tom Bradford Nash. She grew up in Augusta, KY and graduated from Augusta High School. She married the love of her life, Charles Richard “Dick” Appelman on June 1, 1957. Gale was the beloved mother of Mike (Liz), Tim (Dee), Jeff (Patty), Joe (Georgina) and Penny (Marty) Boswell and loving grandmother to Matthew, Lindsey, Anthony, Brad, Tyler, Ellen, Beth and multiple great grandchildren. It was through Gale’s involvement in her children’s lives that she volunteered in their elementary schools in many ways. This led to her eventually working for the Mt. Healthy School District at Greener Elementary as a librarian for 25 years where she made many life-long friends and walking companions. She had a love for reading and spent many an hour in her swing with her books. She also spent many hours with her puzzles as long as they weren’t the hard ones. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents and two brothers, Jack and David Nash.
