About Nicole

Born in O'Neill, Nebraska on Sept. 15, 1976, she was the daughter of Stephen and Margaret Ann Schulte Reiser, who survive her.

She was a lovely person admired by the Church Community in which she was active. Nicole was a devoted mother and wife who adored her family and loved being a part of this Delmarva community. She loved God, and worked as a director of the child care center of Bay Shore Babies and as a teacher at SPLASH, and was a member of Bay Shore Community Church in Gumboro, DE. The children at Bay Shore were special to her. She felt Sussex County was her home, and it reminded her of her native home.

She leaves behind her husband, Kevin Edward Bennett, whom she married in 1998. She also leaves her three young children: Lauren Nicole, Emily Louise, and Allie Marie. She is also survived by her in-laws: Bob and Mary Bennett, of Millsboro and a brother: Craig Reiser, and his wife Rachel, of Norfolk, Nebraska. She was preceded by her sister, Emily in 2003. Also surviving are nieces: Carli and Adelinne; and her nephew: Ben; her sister-in-law: Kelli Cooper, and her husband Robert; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family members.

Memorial Fund

About the Memorial Fund

Nicole and Kevin both worked and depended on two incomes and adjustable schedules in order to take care of their girls and to make ends meet.

Due to medical situations with their two girls, they had incurred some recent and unexpected credit card debt.

The family will now need to hire a nanny so Kevin will be able to continue working a full-time job to support the family.

The purpose of this fund is to help Lauren, Emily, Allie and Kevin support unexpected costs and to help pay off existing debts that Nicole and Kevin were both working towards. Funds will also be placed into a college fund for the three girls.

Future plans include a non-profit foundation in the memory of Nicole.
