Obituary of Rheda Ann Morell

Rheda Ann Morell of Kinnelon passed away on November 27, 2021 after a short illness. She was predeceased by her husband Erich by several months. Rheda is survived by her beloved daughter Michele, daughter in law Bethann, sisters Sharon and Charlene, many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, chosen family Brenda, Jessica and Kristen, and dear friends.


Rheda was born and raised in Scranton, PA and relocated to Philadelphia as a young woman. She lived in Germany for several years before moving to New York and ultimately residing in Kinnelon for over 50 years.


Rheda was an accomplished singer from a very young age. She sang at several different churches and for many weddings and special occasions as well as in a semi-professional capacity.


She was a world traveler who was especially fond of her trips to Germany, England, Portugal and Greece. Rheda enjoyed good wine, food, music and company wherever she went, from the opera to her bridge group’s dinners to the parties in her home.


Rheda loved flowers and took immense pride in the garden that she planted with her husband and daughter in their Kinnelon backyard. She loved to look out of her windows and count the number of blooms throughout each spring and summer.


There will be a service for family and friends scheduled in the future. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Strengthen Our Sisters, a favorite charity of Rheda’s.
