Alice “Jeanette” Hammond Lineweaver, 80, passed away peacefully with her daughter at her side, on June 18, 2018, from a long courageous battle from lymphoma cancer, at Delaware Hospice Center in Milford, DE.
She attended Christ Lutheran Church in Seaford, DE. She was an active member of LWML group, a chair person for Lay Ministry, until her illness would not allow her to continue. She loved serving her chuch, helping with the dinners and playing “Bunko”.

She especially enjoyed spending time with her family. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren were the apple of her eye. She loved to go shopping and spending time with her friend, Eunice Vickers, and her sister Del.
