From 1969 to 1987, when she retired, Mrs. Hejduk was executive secretary to the director of nursing at Franklin Square Hospital. Earlier, she had held similar positions at several businesses.

During the 1950s, she and her husband owned and operated R. M. Evert Sporting Goods on Belair Road near Clifton Park.

An avid football fan, she was a Baltimore Colts season ticket holder from 1947 until the team moved to Indianapolis in 1984. She and her husband had recently become Ravens season-ticket holders.

The former Rose Marie Franc was born and raised in East Baltimore, where she graduated from Patterson Park Senior High School in 1940. She also was a graduate of the Strayer-Bryant-Stratton Business College.

During World War II, she was a volunteer at the Coast Guard Yard in Curtis Bay.

For 40 years, she was a member of the Maryland chapter of the Czechoslovak Society of America and had served as its financial secretary.
