Carol A. (Hommel) Woodie, age 69, of Bear, DE, and formerly of Bethpage, NY, passed away on Friday, February 26, 2021.

Born in Long Island, NY on May 29, 1951, Carol was the daughter of the late Harry F. and Elvera K. (Peters) Hommel.

Carol made her career with the State of Delaware Office of Vital Statistics, where she was employed as an administrative assistant, and retired in 2013 after many years of dedicated service.

In her younger years, Carol was a Girl Scout and a baton twirler that enjoyed family vacations that were often spent in a cabin in Maine. She also enjoyed league bowling and dancing. Carol was an avid jewelry, handbag, and antique collector who loved finding new and interesting pieces. She spent many happy hours going to the movies with Dave and listening to a wide range of music. Carol loved the band R.E.M. and found great meaning in their song, “Nightswimming.” She held a special place in her heart for animals, especially her faithful feline companions. Above all else, Carol adored spending time with her family who will dearly miss her.

In addition to her parents, Carol was preceded in passing by her son, Brian A. Theodoreopolos and infant grandson, Patrick John. She is survived by her loving husband of 22 years, David D. Woodie; daughter, Stephanie A. Theodoreopolos; bonus daughter, Kaelynn Woodie; brother, Bruce Hommel and his wife, Sharon; and grandsons, Justin Honaker and Christian Symons.

A funeral service will be held at 12 Noon on Thursday, March 4, 2021, at the Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 121 West Park Place, Newark, DE, where a visitation will be held from 11 am until 12 Noon. Interment will follow in All Saints Cemetery, 6001 Kirkwood Highway, Wilmington, DE. Face masks will be required for all in attendance.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Carol’s memory can be made to the Delaware Humane Association, 701 A Street, Wilmington, DE 19801.
