Bertha H. Hebel, of Dagsboro, passed away peacefully at her home on Tuesday, May 31, 2022. She was 95 years old. She was born to the late James and Mary Thompson on March 31, 1927, in Church Hill, MD.  

She was married to the late Harold W. Hebel on September 11, 1948. They were together for 62 years before he passed away in 2010.  She and her husband had moved to Delaware in 1985 in preparation for the birth of her grandchild. Bertha was known as a social butterfly, loved people-especially her children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren.  She enjoyed cooking and feeding people. She also loved her church and church friends. Bertha had a sharp mind and always knew what was going on with those she cared about. She worked as a secretary for Dr. Phyllis Pullen in Kingsville, MD as well as working for the Fenwick State Park as an attendant.  

Bertha is preceded in death by her husband Harold, one daughter Elisa Hebel-Suders, and seven siblings. She is survived by her three daughters Linda Hebel of Dagsboro, DE, Nancy Hebel of Annapolis, MD, and Karen Steedman (Richard) of Frankford, DE; three grandchildren Matthew Steedman, Heather Steedman-Mosier, and Tricia Collison; five great grandchildren Colton, Beckett, Watson, Jackson and Malori. Bertha is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. A special thank you to the Hospice team that took care of Bertha: Jessica, Shamaya, Kathy, Chelsea, and nurse Nancy.  

A Celebration of Life will be held later at her home church in Millville.

In lieu of flowers the family asks for donations to be made to Delaware Hospice.
