Kathryn M. Maggs


A Mass of Christian burial for Kathryn M. Maggs, who lived in Glen Arm for about four years, will be offered at 9 a.m. today at Our Lady Help of Christians Roman Catholic Church in Albany, N.Y.

Mrs. Maggs, who was 91 and moved to the Glen Meadows Retirement Community in Glen Arm from New Rochelle, N.Y., died Monday of heart failure at the Dulaney-Towson Nursing and Convalescent Center.

She had been a member of St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church on Long Green Pike while living in Glen Arm.

The former Kathryn M. Shields was a native of Albany and did volunteer work for Catholic Charities in New Rochelle.

Her husband, E. Leonard Maggs, died in 1986.

She is survived by a daughter, Carolyn Keating, formerly of Fallston and now of Fishkill, N.Y.; two sons, Dr. Robert Maggs of Monmouth Beach, N.J., and Alan J. Maggs of Poughkeepsie, N.Y.; 13 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Dr. William Seabold


Services for Dr. William M. Seabold, a pediatrician in Catonsville for more than 25 years who retired in 1981 as $H assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Maryland Medical School, will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at the Sterling Ashton Funeral Home, 736 Edmondson Ave., Catonsville.

Dr. Seabold, who moved from Baltimore to the Crofton Convalescent Center about six months ago, died early yesterday of pneumonia at Doctor's Hospital in Lanham. He was 85.

He started his pediatric practice in Catonsville in the mid-1930s. Particularly interested in newly born infants, including the premature, he developed procedures for giving them intravenous fluids. He helped develop improvements in blood replacement in infants and treatment for those with Rh incompatibility.

In 1962, he closed his practice and accepted a fellowship to study adolescent medicine at the Children's Hospital in Washington.

Later, he joined the faculty at Maryland, working in both the pediatric and psychiatric departments with exceptional children and those with seizure disorders as well as with developmentally disabled adolescents and adults before retiring in 1981.

Born in Baltimore, he was a graduate of the old Robert E. Lee Junior High School and of City College.

He attended the University of Maryland at College Park before graduating from the Johns Hopkins University. He was a 1931 graduate of the University of Maryland Medical School.

He was an intern and resident at University Hospital and a resident at Children's Hospital in Boston before starting his practice in Catonsville.

His wife, the former Esther J. Benzaquin, died Nov. 8.

He is survived by a daughter, Gretchen Johnson of Minnetonka, Minn.; twin sons, Robert A. Seabold of Bowie and William H. Seabold of Coconut Creek, Fla.; 10 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the Gastrointestinal Diagnostic Clinic at Union Memorial Hospital.

Sister Joan Walker

Teacher at John Paul

A Mass of Christian burial for Sister Joan Walker, S.N.D., who had been assistant principal, music teacher and counselor at the John Paul Regional School in Woodlawn for eight years, will be offered at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow at the Roman Catholic Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, 6950 Dogwood Road.

Sister Joan, 60, died of cancer Wednesday at the Villa Julie Infirmary, which is operated by her order, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur. She moved there after her retirement in February.

In her 40-year teaching career, she had also been assigned to schools in Philadelphia; Norfolk, Va.; Southern Pines, N.C.; and Washington.

The native of Upper Darby, Pa., joined her religious order in 1949. She was a graduate of Trinity College in Washington.

She is survived by a sister, Mary Walker, and three brothers, Paul, John and James Walker, all of the Philadelphia area.

Memorial gifts were suggested to the Sister Joan Scholarship Fund at the John Paul Regional School -- which is adjacent to the Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Help -- or to the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Retirement Fund, P.O. Box 29335, Washington, D.C. 20017.


Katie B. Linder


Services for Katie B. Linder, who retired in 1982 as a secretary with the Baltimore County Health Department, will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Towson Presbyterian Church, Chesapeake and Highland avenues.

She died Wednesday of cancer at the Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The Towson resident was 71.

Mrs. Linder began working for the Health Department in 1964 when her marriage of about 20 years to Rudolph E. Linder ended in divorce.

The former Katie Burrus was born in Brownstown, Ill., where she was valedictorian of her high school class and attended a secretarial school.

She worked as a secretary in Florida and Mississippi before her marriage. She and her husband moved to Towson in 1953.
