William (Bill) Leon Ebeling, 66, of Sykesville, passed away Saturday February 6 at Northwest Hospital. Born March 20, 1949 to the late Herman and Angeline Ebeling, Bill graduated from Sykesville High School in 1967. He completed the LPN program at Springfield Hospital Center and from there went to RN school at Salisbury State College and trained at Peninsula General Hospital; he became a Nurse Practitioner later in his career. Bill worked at Springfield for over thirty years in many positions, including Head Nurse, Nurse Recruiter, Director of Managed Care, and as an instructor for the LPN course before retiring in 2000. He occasionally taught CPR and nursing classes at Carroll Community College. Bill also worked as a Staff Nurse at the Behavior Unit at Carroll Hospital Center and continued in this position after his retirement from Springfield. He was very active in the local community. He was a long-time member of the Freedom Jaycees, holding nearly every office, including President, and receiving numerous awards. A member of Oakland United Methodist Church, he served a lay speaker and taught adult Sunday School classes, led the Methodist youth fellowship and men's group, and was active on a number of committees. A talented public speaker, he was called to give sermons at Oakland, emcee Springfield events, and officiate at funerals. He had a great interest in history, including local history, and contributed to the Springfield Hospital Center Museum. Bill's love of flowers and animals was well-known, and he volunteered many hours as a Master Gardener and recently planned a hummingbird sanctuary at Winifred Manor in Sykesville. He especially enjoyed gathering with his large family and kept in close contact with them. Bill will be remembered by his many friends for his optimism, kindness, generosity, and sense of humor. Surviving are his children, Dr. Jennie Ebeling and husband Menachem Rogel of Evansville, IN, Todd Ebeling of Baltimore, and Ashly Ebeling of Sykesville; grandchildren Lilah and Aviva Rogel and James and Nicholas McCarty; sister Peggy Ludwig and husband Twig of Marriottsville; brother Ron Ebeling and wife Jan of Martinsburg, WV, brother Matt Breeding and wife Deborah of Hagerstown, and sister-in-law Brenda Ebeling Hughes of FL; aunts Mary Leatherwood, Anne Leatherwood, and Diane Leatherwood, and uncle Ralph Leatherwood; many nieces, nephews, and cousins; and close friend and former wife, Ginny Ebeling. He was pre-deceased by his parents, brother Dave Ebeling, and an infant son, William Scott. The funeral service will be held Thursday February 11 at 11:00 am at Oakland United Methodist Church, 5901 Mineral Hill Road in Sykesville, followed by a graveside service at Old Oakland Church, 5971 Mineral Hill Road. A luncheon will follow at the church hall. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Oakland United Methodist Church.
