Lt. Col. Grace McNeal

Air Force nurse

Lt. Col. Grace H. McNeal, a retired Air Force nurse, died Monday of cancer at Malcolm Grow Hospital at Andrews Air Force Base. She was 51.

Colonel McNeal was medically retired from the Air Force in 1991.

Born in Baltimore, she was a 1955 graduate of the Calvert School and a 1961 graduate of Bryn Mawr School. She made her debut that same year at the Bachelors Cotillon.

She was a graduate of St. Mary's Seminary Junior College and the Church Home Hospital School of Nursing and earned bachelor's and master's degrees from the Johns Hopkins University.

She joined the Air Force Nurse Corps in 1972. Her assignments were mostly staff development and medical readiness training.

Her decorations included the Meritorious Service Medal with five oak leaf clusters, the Air Force Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster and the National Defense Ribbon with bronze star.

The Roland Park resident was a member of Brown Memorial Woodbrook Presbyterian Church where she sang in the choir, the Johns Hopkins Club and the Junior League.

Services were held yesterday at the Old Presbyterian Meeting House in Alexandria, Va., with graveside services set for 11 a.m. today in Greenmount Cemetery.

She is survived by her mother, Grace H. McNeal, and sister, Catherine McNeal Larson, both of Alexandria; and a nephew.

Memorial donations may be made to Dedication and Everlasting Love to Animals (DELTA), P.O. Box 9, Glendale, Calif. 91209; or the North Shore Animal League, Lewyt Street, Port Washington, N.Y. 11050.

Harvey B. Seay, who had owned Cavalier Cleaners on Madison Avenue, died Sunday at the Lorien Columbia Nursing )) and Rehabilitation Center of complications of a stroke. He was 85.

The Randallstown resident retired in 1975 as owner of Cavalier, which he opened in 1946. The native of Blackstone, Va., came to Baltimore in 1926 and worked for a dry cleaner until he started his own business.

He had been a member of the Phalanx Club, the Pals Bowling Club and the Prince Hall Masons.

He was a member of Enon Baptist Church for about 65 years and had been chairman of the trustees, organist and director of two choirs. Services were set for noon today at the church, Edmondson Avenue and Schroeder Street in Baltimore.

He is survived by his wife, the former Bertha Hawkes; a daughter, Marian Seay Christian of Columbia; three grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
