A Mass of Christian burial for Elsie M. Meushaw, who with her husband operated a well-known Southwest Baltimore restaurant, was offered yesterday at St. Lawrence Roman Catholic Church in Woodlawn.
Mrs. Meushaw, who was 95 and a resident of the Maryland Manor Convalescent Home in Glen Burnie, died Wednesday of heart failure at Harbor Hospital Center.
Born and reared in Baltimore, the former Elsie Mae Callery was married in 1917 to Herbert T. Meushaw, before his entry into military service during World War I.
The couple opened Meushaw's Restaurant on Frederick Avenue at the end of Prohibition in the early 1930s, and managed it until Mr. Meushaw suffered a heart attack in 1945. The business remained in family hands, however, until it was sold in 1977.
Mrs. Meushaw was formerly active in the Women's Civic League and the women's auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Mrs. Meushaw's husband died in 1962.
Surviving are two sons, Herbert T. Meushaw Jr. of Pasadena and John I. Meushaw of Ocean City; a daughter, Ann D. Ehling of Glen Burnie; 10 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren.
