Sister Mary Anna Queen, 77, educator

March 14, 1991

Sister Mary Anna Queen, R.S.M., who had been principal of the Mount Washington Country School for Boys in the 1950s, died Tuesday of an intestinal infection at Mercy Medical Center.

A mass of Christian burial for Sister Mary Anna, who was 77 and lived at Mercy Villa, will be offered at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow in the chapel of Mercy Villa, 6806 Bellona Ave.

She retired about two years ago after four years as a teacher at Mercy High School. Earlier, she taught at many area elementary schools, including St. Peter's, Immaculate Heart of Mary, St. Bernard's and St. Cecilia's.

In the mid-1950s, when she became principal, Mount Washington Country School for Boys was on the Mount Washington campus of Mount St. Agnes College and High School. She oversaw the construction of the new school and served as its principal until 1964.

The former Rosalie Queen was born in Baltimore and graduated from Mount St. Agnes High School and the College of Notre Dame.

She entered the Sisters of Mercy of the Union in the United States of America in 1938.

She is survived by a sister, Ann McNamara of Baltimore; a brother, Dr. J. Emmett Queen of Baltimore; and several nieces and nephews.
