Laura V. Riley

April 07, 1992

Laura V. Riley, former nursing supervisor in the Halstead surgical unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital, died Thursday of congestive heart failure in the Mallard Bay Nursing Center in Cambridge. She was 88.

Graveside services for Miss Riley were being held today at Loudon Park Cemetery, 3801 Frederick Ave.

She retired in 1969 after 10 years as head of patient services, a hospital department that handled special needs of patients and their families from out of town, including interpreters when needed for patients from abroad.

Born in Baltimore, she was a graduate of St. Mary's School in Peekskill, N.Y., and of the Johns Hopkins Hospital Nursing School.

A former resident of the Pinehurst area, she moved to St. TTC Michaels after her retirement.

She is survived by three nieces, Julia R. LaMotte of Savannah, Ga., Helen Patton of Cashiers, N.C., and Sidney A. Willson of Woodbine; and a nephew, Douglas Riley of Dallas.
