Claymore C. Sieck Wholesale florist

July 09, 1991

Services for Claymore C. Sieck, a founder of the wholesale florist business that bears his name, will be held at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow at the Mitchell-Wiedefeld Home, 6500 York Road.

Mr. Sieck, who was 94 and lived in Homeland for many years, died Sunday at the Meridian Nursing Center, Long Green.

He retired about 15 years ago as a partner with members of his family in the company that he and another partner started in 1918.

The company, now located at Chase Street and the Fallsway, started at St. Paul and Center streets and was located in the 600 block of North Calvert Street for many years.

In 1960, it began expanding into other East Coast cities.

A native of the Glen Burnie area who was reared in Anne Arundel County and Baltimore, he attended the Polytechnic Institute.

His wife, the former Mary Hope Thornton, died in 1985.

He is survived by a son, William C. Sieck of Hampton; two daughters, Elinor S. Hetzner of the Pinehurst area and Hope S. Gilliams of Potomac; two brothers, Luther S. Sieck of Baltimore and C. Robert Sieck of Hampton; six grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.
