A memorial service for Carol Virginia Easter, a retired hair stylist who was active in church work, will be held at 11 a.m. today at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 1609 Kurtz Ave., Lutherville.
Mrs. Easter, who was 69 and lived on Myamby Road in Baynesville, died Saturday at a hospital in Mount Pleasant, Pa., while visiting relatives.
She retired about 20 years ago after working for about 10 years at the beauty shop in the Hecht Co. store in Northwood.
In 1942, she joined the Women's Army Corps, and in 1945 received a medical discharge after becoming ill.
Born in Baltimore and reared in the Govans area, the former Carol Virginia Pettingill was a 1939 graduate of Eastern High School.
A member of the church council at St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, she had earlier been active at the Reformation Lutheran Church and the Holy Comforter Lutheran Church in Govans.
A member of the Disabled American Veterans and the American Legion, she was also a founder of a tutoring group, the NortheastBaltimore Volunteer Reading Association.
She is survived by two daughters, the Rev. Suzanne C. Getz of Mount Pleasant and Kathleen J. Peck of Olney; a son, Bruce Robinson of Overlea; nine grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter.
