Marione Croxton, school counselor, dies at 89

May 23, 1991

Services for Marione H. Croxton, retired supervisor of guidance counselors at the Booker T. Washington Junior High School, will be held at noon today at the Macedonia Baptist Church, 718 W. Lafayette Ave.

Mrs. Croxton, who was 89 and lived in West Baltimore for many years, died Monday of heart failure at Keswick.

She retired more than 20 years ago from the junior high school where she had been a counselor for many years. She started her 32-year career as an elementary school teacher.

A native of Tidewater Virginia, who was reared in Baltimore, the former Marione Holmes was a graduate of Douglass High School and Morgan State University. She also held a master's degree from New York University.

She was a former secretary of the Baltimore Chapter of the Vocational Guidance Association.

Mrs. Croxton was one of the first members from Baltimore of the Kappa Delta Pi educational honorary society, and she belonged to the National Association of College Women and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority.

A member for more than 50 years of the Macedonia Baptist Church, she also belonged to its ladies guild.

Fond of travel, she had circled the world three times.

Her husband, Robert B. Croxton, who was active in fraternal affairs and several businesses, died in 1959.

She is survived by many nieces and nephews.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the ladies guild of the Macedonia Baptist Church.
