March 02, 1991

Services for Nannie Duckett, a retired companion and housekeeper who was 102, will be held at 10:30 a.m. today at the Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church, 1301 Druid Hill Ave.

Ms. Duckett died Sunday at her home on Colborne Road after a short illness.

She retired 20 years ago after working as a companion, and earlier as a housekeeper, for many years.

A native of Washington who was raised in the Baltimore area, she spoke two years ago at Howard University on life at the age of 100.

She was the oldest member of the Bethel A.M.E. Church, which she joined in 1924 and where she had belonged to the Bishop Brooks Sunshine Circle and other organizations.

A sports fan who followed the Orioles on radio and television, she also liked to watch game shows and was an expert player of dominoes, checkers and Scrabble.

She is survived by a sister, Georgia Stephens of Baltimore; three nieces, a nephew; four grandnieces; a great-grandniece; and a great-grandnephew.
