Jeanette Shulman

Social worker

Services for Jeanette Shulman, a retired hospital social worker who formerly operated a South Baltimore grocery story, will be at 2 p.m. today at the Sol Levinson & Bros. funeral establishment, 6010 Reisterstown Road.

Mrs. Shulman, who was 83, died Saturday of a stroke at the Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, where she was a resident.

From 1964 to her retirement in 1975, she was a social worker for the former South Baltimore General Hospital -- now Harbor Hospital Center.

A native of Baltimore, the former Jeanette Schochet was a graduate of Western High School in the 1920s.

For 15 years, she managed Shulman's, a grocery store at the corner of Charles and Ostend streets, with her husband, Edwin Shulman. They had been married 24 years when he died in 1961.

At the age of 65, Mrs. Shulman was named a pioneer by The Evening Sun for being one of the first people to live in the Inner Harbor renewal area at the Christ Church Harbor Apartments for the elderly.

From 1954 until her death, she was treasurer of the Harbor Hospital Auxiliary. She was also a member of the auxiliary for the Deaton Hospital & Medical Center, the Women's Civic League and the Beacon Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star, and served on the advisory board of School 33 Art Center on Light Street.

She is survived by a daughter, C. Paige Rose, and brother, David Schochet, both of Baltimore.

The family suggests that memorial donations be made to the activity fund at Hurwitz House, 133 Slade Ave., Pikesville 21208.

Marion Futterman

SSA analyst

Marion Futterman, a retired Social Security Administration analyst, died of heart failure Jan. 12 at Howard County General Hospital. She was 80.

Mrs. Futterman, an Ellicott City resident, worked 35 years at SSA as a clerk, correspondence supervisor and administrative analyst before retiring in 1971.

The former Marion Charles was born in Washington, where she was a 1930 graduate of Central High School. For a year, she attended Mahoney's Art School in Washington.

She was married for 50 years to Jack S. Futterman, a retired assistant commissioner at SSA. The couple had lived in Ellicott City since 1962.

Mrs. Futterman enjoyed traveling to New England and had visited Great Britain, Sweden, Switzerland and Yugoslavia. She also liked to paint in watercolors.

Since 1950, she had been a member of the Baltimore Hebrew Congregation.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a sister, Helen Charles Clark of Silver Spring.

Services were held Wednesday at the Sol Levinson & Bros. funeral establishment.

Edna Agatha Kanely

Baltimore author

Services for Edna Agatha Kanely, author of several reference books on Maryland history and U.S. government publications, will be at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Hartley Miller Funeral Homes, 7527 Harford Road.

Miss Kanely, who was 81, died of bone and lung cancer Saturday at the Dulaney-Towson Nursing & Convalescent Home. She had retired in 1973 after 32 years as a library administrator for the Government Printing Office in Washington.

Her latest work, "The Directory of Maryland Church Records," was published last week by Family Line Publications of Westminster.

Other books by Miss Kanely included "Baltimore & Ohio Employees" and "The Cumulative Subject Guide to U.S. Government Bibliographies."

A Baltimore native, she was a 1935 graduate of City College's night school. She continued her education through night classes while working in Washington and graduated magna cum laude in 1958 from the University of Baltimore with a degree in business management.

Seventeen years later -- and two years after she retired -- she earned her master's in library science from Catholic University in Washington.

Miss Kanely was a member of the American Library Association, Maryland Library Association, Genealogical Council of Maryland, Maryland Genealogical Society, Baltimore County Genealogical Society and Maryland Historical Society.

In 1977, she received the Richard H. Berney Award for volunteer work at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, having donated more than 2,100 hours of her time to the institution.

She is survived by a niece, Arlen Manley of Baltimore.

The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the Maryland Historical Society or Enoch Pratt Library.
