Barbara Ormond Long, wore many hats

June 30, 2020

Barbara Ormond Long, 76, of Millsboro left this life peacefully to join the Lord Thursday, June 25, 2020, at her home.  She was born in Riverdale, Md., May 17, 1944, daughter of the late Rupert Bull and Constance Ormond Brower.

Barbara wore many hats during her life, from raising her six children, working in the school cafeteria, a real estate office, her beloved Goodwill Store, working with her husband in their family business, to cutting hair (both human and canine).  Her resume was as whimsical as her sense of style.  Barbara was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.  She was loved by many and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

In addition to her parents, Barbara was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Kenneth E. Long;  her son, Ron Long; and her son-in-law, Mike Hoffman. She is survived by her children: Kenneth Long Jr. (Glady), Conni Long (Mike Dillon), Paula Hoffman, Paul Long and Bob Long (Lori); her grandchildren: Sara, Stephanie, Amber, Bobby, Derek, Carleigh, Britni, Neijor, and Kenny III; her great-grandchildren: Jakarie, Madison, Isabella, Nicki and Evilynn; her brothers: Barre Bull (Sandra) and Larry Bull (Sharon);  her sisters: Cherita Moran, Geraldine Zetterberg and Karen Jenkins Kneessi; and many other extended family and friends.

A celebration of life will be held at the home of Barbara's daughter, Conni Long, Saturday, July 4, 2812 Sagamore Court, Pasadena, Md.  Since this is to be a celebration of Barbara and a gathering of family that she loved so much, we encourage everyone to dress casually, share stories of Mom, and laugh.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Delaware Hospice for the amazing care and support they offered to Barbara and her family.
