April 10, 1997

Eleanor T. DeMoss, who retired from the public relations and advertising department of the Chessie System after a 44-year career, died of Alzheimer's disease Monday at home in Rodgers Forge. She was 89.

She went to work in the railroad's commercial development department when she was 16. She transferred to the public relations department and retired in 1968.

She was born Eleanor Talbott in East Baltimore and educated in city schools. Her forebears came to Maryland in 1648.

"She was very proud of the fact that her ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 during the defense of Baltimore, the Mexican and Civil wars," said her nephew, Nicholas B. Talbott of Catonsville.

Mrs. DeMoss was a member of the Country Club of Maryland.

Services will be at 11 a.m. today at Mitchell-Wiedefeld Home Inc., 6500 York Road, Rodgers Forge.

She also is survived by her husband of 38 years, John I. DeMoss.
