Helen Elizabeth Hardy, 94, homemaker, mother

Helen Elizabeth Hardy, a homemaker and mother of two who loved Ocean City, died at Greater Baltimore Medical Center on Wednesday of complications from a fall. She was 94.

Born in Baltimore and raised in the Patterson Park area, where she attended parochial school, the former Helen Fody was one of nine siblings. She married George Alvin Hardy in 1929, and they later moved to Baltimore County.

Mrs. Hardy was known to her family and friends as Miss Ocean City because she spent 50 of the past 51 summers there, usually at the Sea Mist Apartments at 13th Street and Philadelphia Avenue. The only summer she missed was in 1973, the year her husband died.

For the past 20 years, she was a resident of Dulaney Valley Apartments. She never learned to drive and walked to Towson Town Center every day, rain or shine.

She was a longtime member of the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in Towson, where a memorial Mass was offered yesterday.

Survivors include a daughter, Nancy Davis of Towson; a son Glenn Hardy of Long Green Valley; seven grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren.

Benjamin Page, 31, former teacher

Benjamin Page, a Baltimore native and former city school teacher, died Monday from complications of diabetes at Union Memorial Hospital. The East Baltimore resident was 31.

Mr. Page graduated from Baltimore Lutheran High School and earned his bachelor's degree in fine arts and a master's degree in art education from Morgan State University.

He taught for several years at Glenmount Elementary School in Northeast Baltimore.

Services were held Friday.

He is survived by his mother, Janice Page of Baltimore.
