January 19, 1991

A memorial service for Marie H. Dietrich, who lived in Govans for 50 years, will be held at 11 a.m. today at the Holy Comforter Lutheran Church, 5513 York Road.

Mrs. Dietrich, who was 87, died Jan. 12 of pneumonia at a hospital in Somerville, N.J. She had moved to Middlesex, N.J., in 1979 after the death of her husband of 50 years, John F. Dietrich, retired shop superintendent for the Baltimore Steel Co.

The former Marie Hardesty was born in Port Republic and came to Baltimore to attend what is now Towson State University. She graduated in 1922.

She taught at schools in Southern Maryland, including the one-room school in Port Republic she had attended, which was restored as a museum during the 1976 bicentennial celebrations.

She is survived by two daughters, Beverly Weber of Middlesex and Barbara Hudgins of Northville, Mich.; three sisters, Annabel Hardesty and Harper Strain, both of Arlington, Va., and Leila Hardesty of Falls Church, Va.; a brother, LeRoy Hardesty of Prince Frederick; six grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
