Mabel J. Geiss Retired federal worker


September 20, 1990

Services for Mabel Jeannette Geiss, a retired federal worker who lived in Halethorpe for many years, will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday in the chapel at Fairhaven, the Sykesville retirement community.

Mrs. Geiss, who was 90 and moved to Fairhaven about 10 years ago, died Monday of complications following surgery at the Baltimore County General Hospital.

She retired more than 30 years ago from the Internal Revenue Service office in Baltimore but had worked earlier in Washington for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.

A native of Atlantic City, N.J., who was reared and educated in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., the former Mabel Jeannette Muir moved to Washington as a young woman and first worked in the accounting department of Woodward & Lothrop.

She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and of Masonic groups.

Her husband, John I. Geiss, worked for the Baltimore and Ohio railroad before his death in 1969.

She is survived by a niece, Marion Bucher Snyder of Davidsonville; a nephew, Charles M. Martin of Kennesaw, Ga.; and many grandnieces and grandnephews.
