Anna W. Beels, 86, a retired Remington's book store manager, died Monday at Baltimore County General Hospital of a heart ailment.
Funeral services were being held today at the Haight funeral establishment in Eldersburg.
Mrs. Beels, who had lived in Towson since the mid-1970s, retired in 1986 as manager of the Towsontown Plaza store after more than 60 years of service, during which she managed other Remington's stores and the warehouse and was a buyer.
The former Anna Witman was a native of Baltimore and a graduate of Western High School.
Her husband, Charles Harry Beels, a carpenter, died in 1940.
A resident of Howard Park before moving to Towson, she was a member of the First Baptist Church in Forest Park and later the Woodbrook Baptist Church.
