Ruth C. Marriott, a longtime Liberty Road resident who soldchildren's clothing well into her 80s, died Monday at Baltimore County General Hospital after a heart attack at her home.
Services for Mrs. Marriott, who was 92, were being held today at the Loring Byers Chapel, 8728 Liberty Road.
"Miss Ruth," as she was known to many neighbors and customers, lived and worked for many years in the Rockdale section of Liberty Road in Baltimore County.
In the mid-1930s, she and her husband, William Saum Marriott, operated Marriott's Confectionery and Lunch in Rockdale. The shop became known for her specialties, including peach cakes and holiday fruit cakes.
