Hazel M. Wolfe, like a mother to many

November 20, 2017

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

Hazel was a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Hazel enjoyed reading, watching baseball, going out to dinner with family, and most of all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchild. Many thought of Hazel as a second mom and she excelled at "mothering" them, handing out love and tough love with equal measure. Hazel was very strong and independent to the end. She lived at home taking care of herself and her pets. Hazel was a member of Epworth United Methodist Church of Rehoboth Beach.

Hazel was predeceased by her loving husband Reese Wolfe; her twin sister, Hester Desmet; and her sister, Ruth Short. Hazel is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Kathy and Mark Thompson; two grandchildren, Dan and Melony Thompson; one great-grandchild Carter Thompson; and her sister-in-law Mary Wolfe.

Funeral services will be held Sunday, Nov. 26, at 1 p.m, at the Long Neck Chapel of Melson Funeral Services.

Burial to follow immediately afterwards at the Epworth Cemetery, Rehoboth Beach.
