Edwin A. Kuser

November 05, 1990

Edwin A. Kuser, a retired Swiss chef who headed hotel and hospital kitchens, died of heart failure Thursday at his Arbutus home. He was 94.

Services for Mr. Kuser were being held today at Ambrose Inc., 1328 Sulphur Spring Road in Arbutus.

Mr. Kuser trained as a chef in his native Switzerland under a rigorous apprenticeship system, which required that he pay for the privilege of learning.

He came to Baltimore in 1925.

At various times, he had served as executive chef at the Lord Baltimore Hotel, the Baltimore Country Club and Johns Hopkins and Sinai hospitals.

Mr. Kuser retired from Sinai in the late 1970s.

His first wife, the former Gertrude Dolan, died in 1941 after the couple had been married 19 years.

He is survived by his wife of almost 11 years, the former Marguerite Gore Burton; two sons, Edwin A. Kuser Jr. of Catonsville and Robert Kuser of Baltimore; a daughter, Carolyn Dwyer of Cinnaminson, N.J.; a stepson, George E. Burton Sr. of Baltimore Highlands; three stepdaughters, Marguerite L. Leaf of Elkridge, Beverly J. Leaf of Ellicott City, Priscilla McNiel of Ferndale; 28 grandchildren; and 26 great-grandchildren.
