Dorothy L. Fitzgerald

April 09, 1991

Dorothy L. Fitzgerald, 84, a partner in a real estate firm, Chase Fitzgerald and Co. Inc., died Sunday of leukemia at her home in Homeland.

A memorial service will be held at noon tomorrow at the Second Presbyterian Church, St. Paul Street and Stratford Road.

She started in the real estate business in 1936 and founded the Dorothy L. Fitzgerald Co. in the early 1940s.

The current firm, which has offices in the Roland Park Shopping Center, was formed in 1967 in a merger of her company with the Roland Park Realty Co. and Chase and Davis.

She was one of the first women to be licensed as a broker by the Real Estate Commission of Maryland and to serve as a director of the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors.

Her husband, Delano Jackson Fitzgerald, a retired vice president of the Baltimore Gas and Electric Co., died in 1981.

A daughter, Dorothy Fitzgerald Ross of Baltimore, is a partner in the real estate firm and a granddaughter, Carol J. Schmidt, is an associate.

Besides the daughter and granddaughter, survivors include two sisters, Catherine L. Davis of Baltimore and Judge June L. Green of the U.S. District Court in Washington, two great-grandsons and several nieces and nephews.
