Adelaide Rodgers Retired administrator

October 28, 1990

A memorial service for Adelaide Rodgers, a retired medica office administrator, will be held at 4 p.m. today at Baltimore's Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation, University Parkway and St. Paul Street.

Miss Rodgers, who was 75 and lived at the Thirty-Nine Hundred Apartments, died of cancer Wednesday at the home of a nephew.

The native of Brandywine Summit, Pa., was raised in Baltimore. She was a graduate of Western High School, where she had earned straight A's. She graduated in 1936 from Goucher College and studied at the Strayer Business College.

She remained with the same medical practice, now known as Orthopedic Associates, until her final illness, though on a part-time basis for the last three years.

She was an Orioles fan and a supporter of the theater and museums, the Baltimore Symphony and the Baltimore Opera Company.

She is survived by two nephews, Dr. Wilmer K. Gallager Jr. and Laurence R. Gallager, both of Ellicott City; eight grandnieces and grandnephews; and four great-grandnieces and great-grandnephews.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the Cathedral of the Incarnation or to Goucher College.
