Prutia Peirce Lohrmann dies; retired social worker was 79

Memorial services for Prutia Peirce Lohrmann, retired psychiatric social worker, will be held 7:30 p.m. Thursday at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Rowe Boulevard and Farragut Road, Annapolis.

Mrs. Lohrmann, 79, of Edgewater, died last Thursday of pneumonia at Anne Arundel Medical Center.

She worked for many years as a family intervention specialist with the Baltimore County Health Department.

In 1962, she joined the staff of Baltimore's Psychiatric Day Center and worked with mentally ill adults there until retiring in 1973.

She held undergraduate degrees in religion from American University and in social work from Simmons College, Boston. She received a master's degree in social work from Columbia University in 1944.

Born in Washington, she graduated from Central High School.

She married Arthur Lohrmann in 1945, and the family made its home in the Sudbrook Park area of Baltimore until moving to Anne Arundel County in the late 1960s. Mr. Lohrmann died in 1983.

She was a member of the National Society of Social Workers, the American University Brahmin Honor Society and a charter member of Beta Epsilon chapter of Delta Gamma sorority.

Her hobbies included travel, gardening and nature study at her home and at the family's "Picnic Farm" in New Hampshire.

She is survived by a son, Arthur Peirce Lohrmann of Edgewater.

The family suggests contributions to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation or to Meals on Wheels of Anne Arundel County.


Dorothy Keller

Nurse at Stella Maris

Services for Dorothy Helen McClure Keller, a registered nurse, will be held at noon tomorrow at Valley Baptist Church, 1401 York Road, Timonium.

Mrs. Keller, 57, died Sunday of a heart attack at Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

She had been a nurse at Stella Maris Hospice for the past nine years.

Previously she worked in the offices of several physicians.

A lifelong resident of the Baltimore area, she married Dr. Paul S. Keller in 1956. They made their home in Lutherville.

Mrs. Keller was a 1956 graduate of the University of Maryland School of Nursing and was a member of its alumni group.

She was a member of Valley Baptist Church and an auxiliary member of Gideons International.

Mrs. Keller was fond of flowers and had a large collection of pottery cows, but her main interest, said her daughter, Linda Maddox, "was caring for other people."

She is survived by her husband; two daughters, Linda Maddox and Susan Bartholme, both of Lutherville; a son, Samuel Keller of Baltimore; her father, Albert Irvin McClure of Towson; and four grandchildren.

Services for Vivian Iowa Goad, a retired legal secretary for the U.S. Transportation Department, will be held 11 a.m. tomorrow at the J. J. Hartenstein Mortuary, 19 S. Main St., Stewartstown, Pa.

Miss Goad, who was 94, died yesterday at the Meridian Nursing Center-Loch Raven.

Born in Norrisville, she lived in Washington for much of her life, retiring from government service in 1967.

For the past five years, she lived in the Brooklyn Park area of Anne Arundel County.

She is survived by several nephews and nieces.

The family suggested contribu- tions to the American Heart Association.

She and her husband, Luigi D'Adamo, had been married 62 years when he died in 1980 at age 84. A son, Michael D'Adamo, died in 1977.

She is survived by a daughter, Elizabeth Broccolino of Baltimore; four sons, Nicholas, Joseph and Louis D'Adamo, all of Baltimore, and Philip D'Adamo of East New Market; a sister, Mary Schuler of Baltimore; four brothers, Rocco, Anthony, Michael and Carmen Rotondo, all of Baltimore; 16 grandchildren; and 18 great-grandchildren.

Services will be held Friday at 1 p.m. at Grace Methodist Church, Charles Street and Belvedere Avenue, for Helen F. Stokes, once a leading soprano with the former Baltimore Civic Opera Company. Burial will be in Lorraine Park Cemetery.

Miss Stokes, who died Saturday, was 81.
