She was a lifelong resident of St. Mary’s County and graduated from St. Mary’s Academy in 1941. In her early years, she was employed in Washington, DC; Jarboesville, MD; and Patuxent River, MD, but decided that her family was more important, so she became a stay-at-home mom and enjoyed working in her flower and vegetable gardens. She was also a volunteer for the Office on Aging and a long-time member of the Holy Face Ladies.
The family will receive friends at the Mattingley-Gardiner Funeral Home Leonardtown, MD on March 6, 2018 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM with prayers recited at 7:00 PM.
