Alice Bynum

Retired seamstress

Alice Patterson Bynum, a retired seamstress, died Sunday after an apparent heart attack at her home on Pennsylvania Avenue.

The 74-year-old Zion Tower Apartments resident retired in 1973 after working for about a decade for the Charles Glick Drapery and Upholstery Co., sewing drapes at home. She first worked for the Rutledge Manufacturing Co. at its South Baltimore pajama factory and then in the alterations departments of the downtown Hamburger's store and finally at the Father and Son Store in Pikesville.

The former Alice Patterson was a native of Baltimore.

Her husband, William B. Bynum, died in 1976.

Though she had attended the Mount Winans United Methodist Church, she was a member for the past 10 years of the Providence Baptist Church and its Progressive Workers Club.

She did volunteer work in its food bank.

Services were to be conducted at 11 a.m. today at the Providence Baptist Church, 1401 Pennsylvania Ave., Baltimore.

She is survived by a daughter, Mary Newman Myers of Baltimore; six grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and a great-great-granddaughter.
