Rosetta B. Williams

Personnel director

Rosetta B. Williams, who retired in 1988 as a personnel director in Baltimore's Department of Housing and Community Development, died Wednesday at Sinai Hospital of complications after surgery.

Mrs. Williams, who was 72 and lived in Baltimore, had done personnel work for the city since 1974. She moved here after working since 1961 for the Job Corps, first as a consultant and then, beginning in 1971, as director of a residential Job Corps center in Chesapeake, Va.

Earlier, she was a supervisor for the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Co.

Born Rosetta Bourne in Lusby in Calvert County, she was educated in public schools there and attended Morgan State, Loyola College and the University of Maryland.

She had been president of the Women's Society for Christian Service, now the United Methodist Women, at Metropolitan United Methodist Church and served on the local board of the Travelers Aid Society and the board of the auxiliary of Maryland General Hospital.

Services were to be held at 11:30 a.m. today at Metropolitan United Methodist Church, Carrollton Avenue and Lanvale Street.

She is survived by a daughter, Adele Terrell of Pikesville; a sister, Eugenia Britt of Pikesville; a brother, Earle Bourne of Lusby; and a grandson.

Investment banker

Thomas H. Vickery Jr., a retired investment banker, died March 3 of pneumonia at Church Home. He was 78.

He retired in 1981 from Chapin Davis & Co., a Cross Keys investment security firm where he had worked for many years. He had started his business career with Mercantile-Safe Deposit and Trust Co. in 1930 and earlier had worked for Bethlehem Steel's Sparrows Point shipyard.

During World War II, he served with the Maryland National Guard's Battery D, 110th Field Artillery in Bermuda.

The Guilford resident was a descendant of Capt. John Chilton, an officer in the Revolutionary War who was killed at the Battle of Brandywine. He was a member of the Society of the Cincinnati, and was active in the Society of Colonial Wars.

A memorial service is planned for 11 a.m. today at Second Presbyterian Church, St. Paul Street and Stratford Road, where he was a member.

He is survived by his wife of 23 years, the former Isabel Elder, and many cousins.

The family suggested memorial donations to a favorite charity.
