From 1951 to 1971, she and her husband, William James Hesse Sr., operated Hesse's Restaurant and Catering Co. at Key Highway and Light Street. Mr. Hesse died in 1971.

Before 1951, Mrs. Hesse, a Baltimore native, had worked in her parents' business, George Rossiter's Restaurant at Hamburg and Hanover streets.

She is survived by her daughter, Peggy Hilscher; two sons, George R. Hesse of Baltimore and William J. Hesse of Chesapeake, Va.; a sister, Anna Lamdin of Baltimore; three grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Stephen C. Husted

Beth Steel manager

Stephen C. Husted, a retired Bethlehem Steel Corp. manager, died Wednesday of pneumonia at the Blakehurst Life Care Community on West Joppa Road. He was 92.

He began his business career with Williamsport Wire Rope Co. and, after that company was acquired by Bethlehem Steel, he became director of sales based in Philadelphia. He moved to Baltimore in 1946 and became sales manager for the company's southeastern region, a position he held until he retired in 1967.

A native of Williamsport, Pa., he attended schools there. After graduation he enlisted in the Navy during World War I and served aboard a minesweeper. After being discharged, he attended Lafayette College, where he earned his bachelor's degree in 1924.

He had been active in several Community Chest campaigns in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Fond of golf, he was a member of the Elkridge Club, the Baltimore Country Club, the Pine Valley Golf Club of New Jersey and the Gulf Stream Golf Club of Gulf Stream, Fla. He was also a member of the Maryland Club.

He is survived by his wife of 61 years, the former Dorothy McCormick; two daughters, Gail Ehrhardt of Ruxton, and Carole Bade of Parkton; six grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Memorial donations may be made to Second Presbyterian Church, St. Paul Street and Stratford Road, Baltimore 21218, or Boys' Latin School, 822 W. Lake Ave., Baltimore 21210.

Plans for a memorial service are incomplete. C. Eric Storms, a retired civil engineer and longtime resident of Philadelphia, died Thursday of cancer while vacationing in Ocean City, N.J. He was 85 and had moved to Bee Hive Place in Cockeysville last year.

He retired in 1974 from Aero Service, a division of Litton Industries in Philadelphia, where he had worked "his whole life," said his son, Stephen E. Storms of Baldwin.

The elder Mr. Storms was born in Lakewood, N.J., and grew up in Atlantic City. He graduated from Villanova University in Philadelphia and served in the Navy during World War II.

In 1939, he married the former Mary Elizabeth Brick, who died in 1981.

He was a member of St. Madeleine Sophie Roman Catholic Church in the Mount Airy section of Philadelphia.
