Dorothy Piquette Macatee, a former Mercy Hospital nurse who was active in charitable endeavors, died Friday at Johns Hopkins Hospital following complications of heart and brain surgery. She was 75.
A mass of Christian burial for Mrs. Macatee will be offered at 11 a.m. tomorrow at St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Church, Calvert and Madison streets.
A graduate of the Mercy Hospital School of Nursing, she worked in the emergency room at Mercy and as a private duty nurse for a few years before World War II.
The Guilford resident, who stopped working after her children were born, was particularly active in charitable causes. Among these, the Women's Auxiliary of Mercy Hospital and Jesuit causes throughout Maryland.
She is survived by her husband of five decades, J. Edward Macatee Jr., a retired vice president of Maryland National Bank; three daughters, Mary Dot Jones of Owings Mills, M. Katherine Gillis of Lutherville, Anne Macatee of Washington; a son, William D. Macatee of San Francisco; a sister, M. Elizabeth Potthast of Arnold; and nine grandchildren.
