Rena B. Ebert, 75, most recently a resident of Snug Harbor in Sea Level, died Wednesday, Sept. 4, 2019, at Carteret Health Care in Morehead City.
Her service is at 11:30 a.m. Friday at Maddox Funeral Home in Front Royal, Va.
Rena was born Nov. 13, 1943, in Washington, D.C. For 40-plus years, she served others in her nursing career, most of those years at Bethesda Naval Hospital in the D.C. area. Rena will be sorely missed. Her love for the Lord, her massive collection of poems, scripture, etc., which she loved to share with others, will be remembered by an untold number of recipients. Others always came first in her work, mind and heart.
She is survived by two sons, Frank E. Ebert and his son Spencer Emile Ebert, and Joseph Andrew Ebert, wife Jill and their children Cambree and Holden Andrew Ebert, all of Enola, Pa. She is also survived by three sisters and their families, Naomi Herring of Pleasant Hill, Mo., Donna Dennis of Morehead City and Lana Hathaway and husband Don Hathaway of Indian Beach.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Dorothy and Vincent Shirley; and her husband, Frank E. Ebert Jr.
