The former Freddie Martha Lee Hill was a native of Athens, Ga., and a 1939 graduate of the University of Georgia. She moved to Towson in 1940 after her marriage to Mr. Loizeaux, whom she met while he was studying forestry at the University of Georgia.

She was active as a leader of the Girl Scouts and a member of the Baltimore County Tercentenary Committee, the Maryland Committee for Children and Youth, the Public Relations Society of America, the Baltimore Public Relations Council and the Baltimore Press Reporters Association.

A former secretary of the Baltimore County Physical Fitness Commission and of the Towson YMCA, she had served on the board of the Friends of the Towson Library and as publicity chairman for National Library Week in 1959 and 1960.

She was a former second vice president of the Women's Advertising Club of Baltimore.

In addition to her husband, her survivors include two daughters, Merry L. Yelken of Towson and Darby L. Bryant of Parkton; two sons, J. Mark Loizeaux and Douglas K. Loizeaux, both of Phoenix; her mother, Ruth Addison Hill of Towson; 13 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
