Dorothy Adair Registered nurse


September 21, 1990

Services for Dorothy Adair, a registered nurse who worked for many years in her husband's dental office, will be held at noon today at the Mitchell-Wiedefeld Home, 6500 York Road.

Mrs. Adair, who had lived at Roland Park Place for five years, died there Tuesday after a series of strokes. She was 87.

For 27 years before the 1982 retirement and death of her husband, Dr. William V. Adair, she worked in his Towson office. Earlier, she had worked in Dr. Adair's Forest Park office.

The former Dorothy Peddicord was born in Baltimore. She was a graduate of Western High School, the Strayer Business College and the nursing school at Union Memorial Hospital.

She did office work and, after her graduation as a nurse, worked for a time at Union Memorial Hospital before her marriage in 1928.

Mrs. Adair was active in Boy Scout and Girl Scout work at Starr United Methodist Church in Forest Park. She belonged to women's groups there and later at Grace United Methodist Church.

She is survived by a daughter, Jane A. Schwemlein of Salisbury; a son, W. Robert Adair of Houston; a brother, retired Army Col. Everett D. Peddicord of San Pedro, Calif.; three sisters, Elizabeth Ward of Lutherville, Nancy Walbeck of Timonium and Jacquelyn Pease of the Rodgers Forge area; six grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
