Hazel M. Wolfe, 99

Hazel M. Wolfe, 99, of Rehoboth Beach, Del., passed away peacefully, at home, on Friday, Nov. 17, 2017.

Wolfe was a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She enjoyed reading, watching baseball, going out to dinner with family and, most of all, her children, grandchildren and great-grandchild. Many thought of her as a second mom, and she excelled at “mothering” them, handing out love and tough love with equal measure.

Wolfe was very strong and independent to the end. She lived at home, taking care of herself and her pets. She was a member of the Epworth United Methodist Church of Rehoboth Beach.

Wolfe was preceded in death by her loving husband, Reese Wolfe; her twin sister, Hester Desmet; and another sister, Ruth Short. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Kathy and Mark Thompson; two grandchildren, Dan and Melony Thompson; a grandchild, Carter Thompson; and her sister-in-law, Mary Wolfe.

Funeral services will be held on Sunday, Nov. 26, 2017, at 1 p.m. at the Long Neck Chapel of Melson Funeral Services near Millsboro, Del. Burial will immediately follow the services, at the Epworth Cemetery in Rehoboth Beach, Del.
