Aurine B. Morsell

Business owner

Aurine B. Morsell, who had owned real estate and insurance businesses in Baltimore, died Wednesday of heart failure at her home of the past eight years in Princess Anne. She was 86.

She retired in 1978 as a partner in what is now Chase Fitzgerald & Co. Inc. She began working in the real estate business in the late 1930s for Edna G. Rock Realtor and shortly thereafter became associated with the Roland Park Co., the real estate and development company.

After Roland Park was dissolved in the mid-1950s, she became part-owner of the Roland Park Realty Co. In 1960, she became sole owner and seven years later merged it into Chase Fitzgerald.

In 1953, after the death of her second husband, William S. Morsell Jr., she took over his insurance firm, W.S. Morsell & Co., and operated it until she sold it in 1972.

Her first husband, Ralph D'Antremont Holman, died in 1938.

The former Aurine Boyden was a native of Baltimore and a graduate of the May School in Boston.

She had been a trustee of St. Mary's College of Maryland and a member of the Baltimore Country Club, the Elkridge Club, the Greenhill Country Club in Princess Anne, the Somerset County Historical Society and the Somerset County Historical Trust.

Services were set for 11 a.m. today at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Princess Anne, where she was a member of the vestry, and 4:30 p.m. today at a family mausoleum in Green Mount Cemetery, 1501 Greenmount Ave., Baltimore.

She is survived by a daughter, Mary Morsell Miller of the Ruxton area; and five grandchildren.
