A Mass of Christian burial for Katherine B. Albee, a retired Baltimore County English teacher, will be offered at 10 a.m. today at St. Lawrence Roman Catholic Church, 5801 Security Blvd.
Mrs. Albee, who lived on Oak Avenue in Lochearn, died Sunday at Good Samaritan Hospital of complications to cancer.
She retired nearly 10 years ago after teaching in Baltimore County schools for about 20 years, the last 15 at Old Court Junior High School. She also taught at the Franklin Junior High School and at the Woodmoor Elementary School.
She taught English at the junior high schools, showing her love not only of literature but also of the mechanics of English grammar.
Before coming to the Baltimore area in 1962, she had taught in a two-room elementary school near Walnut Grove, Minn., and in high schools in Chicago and Colorado Springs, Colo. She taught English, drama, Latin, biology and botany at various times in the high schools.
The former Katherine Boyle was a native of Rockford, Ill., and a graduate of Rosary College in River Forest, Ill. She did graduate work at the University of Minnesota and was awarded a master's degree by Towson State University.
A member of the Emerald Isle Club and the Irish Cultural Society and a supporter of Catholic charities, she was a subscriber to Center Stage and a member of education organizations.
Her husband, Richard G. S. Albee, who was a financial analyst for the Social Security Administration, died in 1977.
She is survived by two sons, John Albee of Davenport, Iowa, and Robert Albee of Reisterstown; a daughter, Mary Albee-Tullberg of Lexington Park; a sister, Irene Mulleryof Minneapolis; and five grandchildren.
