Miss Hance, who was 64 and lived in Washington, died of cancer Sunday at Sibley Memorial Hospital there.
She retired in 1981 as a civilian information specialist at the Pentagon after working for the Army since the late 1940s. Earlier, she worked for the Bureau of the Mint.
Born in Prince Frederick, she was a graduate of Calvert County High School and of Fairfax Junior College in Waynesboro, Va. She later earned a bachelor's degree studying at night at Georgetown University.
She is survived by her mother, Helen Parran Hance of Prince Frederick; a brother, Young D. Hance of Prince Frederick; and three nieces.
