AGE: 80 • Wye Mills, MD

Bev Wolffe, age 80, of Wye Mills MD, passed peacefully surrounded by her family February 21, 2017 at Jenner's Pond, West Grove, PA.

Bev was born in Adams, IN to Harold and Mary Halloran. In her youth, Bev demonstrated a prodigious love of learning as evidenced by valedictorian status at her high school graduation from St. Paul High School. She subsequently graduated summa cum laude from Hanover College in 1959 with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and German. She relocated to Philadelphia, PA after graduation and met the love of her life, Robert Wolffe. In 1961, they married and enjoyed over 55 years together before her husband preceded her in death in 2016. They raised three children - Debbie, Lisa, and Barb in Wilmington, DE before moving to Wye Mills, MD in 1998 to indulge their love of the Chesapeake and being on the water.

Over her adventurous life, Bev openly shared her love of reading, playing cards, volunteering, and being outdoors. Bev and Bob traveled throughout the US and abroad, participating in numerous adventures that strengthened their love of "the great outdoors", international cuisine, and culture.

Bev is survived by her three children, Deborah and husband Charles Hutchinson of North East, MD, Lisa Wolffe of Newark, DE, Barb and husband Greg Pollard of Coconut Grove, FL; and six grandchildren, Holly and Ashley Hutchinson, Heather Wolffe and Megan Graham, Alison and Kelsey Pollard. Bev shared her love with many, and was loved by many more. She will be dearly missed.

A memorial service to celebrate her life will take place on March 4, 2017 at 11:00 am at DuPont Country Club, 1001 Rockland Road, Wilmington, DE 19803. A reception will follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests contributions made in Bev's honor to: Johns Hopkins Medicine Research -
