A Mass of Christian burial for Margaret B. Neale, a Baltimore schoolteacher, will be offered at 7 p.m. today at St. Peter Claver Roman Catholic Church, 1546 N. Fremont Ave.

Mrs. Neale, who was 55, died of cancer Tuesday at her home on East 31st Street.

A reading specialist at the Moravia Park Elementary School, she taught there and at other city elementary schools for 26 years. Earlier, she taught for eight years at a school in Norfolk, Va. She was a member of the Baltimore Teachers Union.

The former Margaret Benton, a native of Lexington, N.C., was reared in Norfolk. She was a graduate of Bennett College in Greensboro, N.C., and did graduate work at University of Maryland and at Morgan State University.

A member of the sanctuary choir at St. Peter Claver's, she also belonged to the Bennett Belles, the alumnae association of her college, and was a founder of the Baltimore chapter of Les Gemmes, a social and civic organization.

In addition to her husband, Paul M. Neale, who also teaches in the public schools, her survivors include a sister, Juanita K. McKay of Virginia Beach; a brother, Robinson Benton of Norfolk; and a nephew.
