Miriam L. 'Mim' Crowl, 79, of Port Deposit, MD, passed away at her home January 6, 2012.

Born in Hershey, PA on October 21, 1932, Mim was the youngest of 13 children born to the late John and Mabel Riegel Cassel. At the age of 15, she graduated from Hershey High School in 1948. She was a homemaker for many years and then later in life took on a career as a journalist, starting at the Cecil Democrat, then going to the Cecil Whig and moving to the News Journal. She changed her career again and became personnel officer for the Rodel Company in Newark, DE where she retired in 1997. She travelled extensively throughout North America, Europe, the Mediterranean and Africa. She was an avid reader and self educated woman who lived very independently. She enjoyed antiques and fine collectibles.

Crowl of Newark, DE; three sisters, Ethel Good of Palmyra, PA, Polly Hatter of Halifax, PA and Helen Steffen of Hershey, PA and a brother John H. Cassel, Jr. of Nicholasville, KY; four grandchildren, Tricia, Ashley, Robert, III and Rachel; a great grandchild Liam; a son-in-law Barry Brown as well as numerous nieces and nephews who all greatly loved 'Aunt Mim'.
