Colleen Bawn Meszaros, 48, who taught for 20 years in the parochial schools of Montgomery County, died Wednesday after suffering a heart attack at her home in Washington.
A mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. tomorrow at St. Joseph's Catholic Church on Capitol Hill in Washington. Graveside services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday at Parkwood Cemetery in Baltimore.
Born in Baltimore, Ms. Meszaros graduated from Notre Dame Preparatory School in 1961, and later from Notre Dame College in Baltimore.
She then began a 20-year career as a teacher in the parochial schools of Montgomery County. At the time of her death, she was a teacher at St. Michaels Catholic School in Silver Spring.
A resident of Washington, Ms. Meszaros had a love of music, and served as a cantor at St. Joseph's Church. She previously was a cantor and secretary for music and liturgy at the National Shrine for the Immaculate Conception in Washington.
Survivors include five sisters, Nancy A. McDaniel of New Freedom, Pa., Mary Jill Young, of Jarrettsville, Kathleen Besanzon of Massillon, Ohio, Erin R. White of Frederick, and Michele Jordon of Baltimore; two brothers, Joseph E. Meszaros and Julius James Meszaros Jr., both of Baltimore; and 10 nieces and nephews.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggest donations in her name to St. Joseph's Catholic Church.
