Barbara Dean Teal, devoted ‘foodie’

January 8, 2021

Barbara Dean Teal, 76, of Rehoboth Beach passed away Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2020, at her home. She was born Oct. 5, 1944, in Huntington, W.Va., daughter of the late Harold and Bessie M. (Thornton) May.

Ms. Teal's interests were many and varied.  An exuberant "foodie," she never passed up an opportunity to patronize a new dining spot or enjoy a new dish.  Ms. Teal was an avid traveler, with NYC on her list of favorite destinations, always taking in a Broadway show whenever she was in the city.  She was loved by many and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Ms. Teal is survived by many friends who will cherish the memories they shared with her.

All services are private.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Parsell Funeral Homes & Crematorium, Atkins-Lodge Chapel, Lewes.
