DEATHS ELSEWHERE

October 27, 1994

Mary G. Roebling, 89, the first American woman to serve as president of a major banking institution, died Tuesday of kidney failure in Trenton, N.J. Her second husband was banking and steel cable magnate Siegfried Roebling, whose company, Roebling Steel Corp., built the Brooklyn Bridge. After his death in 1937, she took over the Trenton Trust, serving as president or chairwoman until 1972 when Trenton Trust was merged into the National State Bank. She was then named to head the board of the combined institutions.
