Obituary of Beth Moll
Beth Moll, 98, died on January 28th surrounded by people who loved her. She was born in Old Waterbury, Long Island, New York. She was the daughter of Bessie and Robert Dein of Queens Village, New York. She met her husband, Darrel, who died in 2007, at a USO event and made him wait for two years before agreeing to marry him. Together they had three children—Wanda, Terry, and Bonnie. The youngest, Bonnie, died at the tender age of 4.
As a girl and a young woman, she played sports right along with “the fellas.” Baseball was a favorite, but she also played tennis and softball. Playing her at ping pong or bowling was fruitless. She always won. She remained active, sharp, stylish, funny, and forthright throughout her entire life. She belonged to the WAVES, sold Avon, and worked at a bank prior to and early in her marriage. She raised two successful children and is survived by four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Her house and garden were pristine because of her effort and care. She made brilliant waffles and chocolate dessert among other things. Fights were fought over the latter.
She is predeceased by her sister, Joan Munzer. She is survived and loved by her daughter, Wanda, her son, Terry, her grandchildren, Bonnie, John, Erin, and Jason, and her great-grandchildren, Maia and Oscar. She is sorely missed. May she be throwing out that first pitch somewhere.
Gathering with the family will be 3:00 to 5:00 PM, Thursday, February 3, 2022, at Hagan-Chamberlain Funeral Home, 225 Mountain Ave., Bound Brook. A graveside service will be 11:00 AM, Friday at Oak Hill Cemetery, Nyack, NY 10960.
