Toby Weinblatt, who returned to school and became a psychologist after founding and heading an organization that raised money for charities, died Sunday at Sinai Hospital of liver failure. She was 71 and lived in Pikesville.

Mrs. Weinblatt began her college studies at age 40, enrolling in what was then Baltimore Junior College. She earned a bachelor's degree and then a master's degree in 1972, both from Towson State University.

From 1972 to 1986, she held several posts as a psychologist, teaching at what was by then the Community College of Baltimore and at Anne Arundel, Essex and Harford community colleges. She also worked for the Psychological Consultants Association and as a psychologist in the Carroll and Anne Arundel counties school systems and for the Juvenile Court in Anne Arundel County.

In 1943, she founded the Liberty Guild, which raised money for the Baltimore League for Crippled Children and Adults and other charitable groups. She also served as the guild's president. She studied painting and did landscapes and family portraits.

Mrs. Weinblatt was listed in the 1981-1982 edition of "Who's Who of American Women."

The former Toby Angster was a native of Baltimore and a graduate, at the age of 15, of Western High School. She then became an administrative secretary to doctors at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, where she was the youngest employee.

Services were set for 11 a.m. today at Sol Levinson & Bros., 6010 Reisterstown Road.

She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Sam Weinblatt; three sons, Rabbi Stuart Weinblatt of Potomac and Robert Weinblatt and Paul Weinblatt, both of Pikesville; a daughter, Janice Altman of Owings Mills; a sister, Helen Corman of Pikesville; a brother, Jerome Angster of Delray Beach, Fla.; and 11 grandchildren.
