Hempel, Birgit

May 4, 1922 — Feb. 9, 2014

Our loving mother, grandmother and aunt, Birgit Marie Hempel peacefully passed away at home on Feb. 9, 2014. The best Mom ever!

Birgit was born on May 4, 1922, in Skaelskor, Denmark, the daughter of Pastor Einar Thygesen Kragh and Elise Magdalene Kragh, and sister to Thyge and Eigil Kragh, all of whom predeceased her. She was married to Soren Knud Hempel, who preceded her in death in June, 1987.

Birgit is survived and sadly missed by her six children Morten Hempel, Jasper (Amey) Hempel, Anne (Flemming) Hempel, Karin Hempel (Tom Clarke), Lisa Hempel, Britta (Greg) Hempel Hebert;  granddaughter Kirsten (Brook) Hempel Moxley; niece Bente Kragh; and grandniece Liselotte Horneman Kragh.

Birgit will be sorely missed by her many, many friends and loving family.
