Carmen Quint Hebbel

Carmen Quint Hebbel, age 90, died after a brief illness at the Hospice of the North Shore’s Kaplan House on Memorial Day 2012.

Born July 25, 1921 in North New Portland, Maine to Blaine E. Quint and Thelma (Luce) Quint, she was predeceased in 2011 by her husband, Carroll J. Hebbel with whom she was married for sixty-seven years.

She was a 1938 graduate of Beverly High School. She attended Simmons College and graduated from the New England Deaconess School of Nursing in 1942. She served as a nurse on the pioneering chest surgery team led by Dr. Richard Overholt who was one of the first doctors to speak out about the dangers of smoking. A world traveler, she and her family lived in Taiwan in the early 1960s and in Rio de Janeiro in the early 1970s. Except for those two periods, she lived for sixty-three years in Ipswich in the 1658 Thomas Lord House, taking great pride in her wonderful flower garden and enjoying the birds attracted to her bird feeders. She was an avid bridge player, past president of the Ipswich Women’s Club, a Girl Scout Leader, a member of the Cable Hospital Auxiliary, a member of the Monday Morning Bowling League and took blood pressure readings at The Council on Aging.

She is survived by three children, Hollis Hebbel and her husband, Juan Perez of Wilmington, NC, Blaine Hebbel and his wife, Maria of Ipswich, and Bruce Hebbel and his wife, Bianca of Marion. She also leaves six grand children;

Jonathan Perez of Woodland, CA, Julia Perez of  Madison, WI,  Madeline Lennox and her husband Andrew Lennox of  Beverly, Alexander Hebbel of Ipswich and Jacob Hebbel and Benjamin Hebbel of Marion. A private service will be held at a later date. Arrangements by the Whittier-Porter Funeral Home of Ipswich.
