Manjusree `Dipu' Basu, 43, officer at Harbor Bank

Services were held Tuesday for Manjusree "Dipu" Basu, 43, a Baltimore banker and Woodlawn resident.

Mrs. Basu, who was an assistant vice president at Harbor Bank of Maryland, took her own life Saturday . She had been suffering from bipolar disorder.

She joined the bank as a teller in 1986 and was promoted several years ago to assistant vice president.

The former Manjusree Roy was born and raised in Calcutta, India, where she graduated from high school. She earned a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Calcutta and emigrated to Baltimore in 1982.

She also attended Catonsville Community College and the University of Maryland Baltimore County.

Mrs. Basu enjoyed writing and dancing and was a member of ASHA, a women's organization based in Washington.

She is survived by a son, Debraj Basu, a daughter, Sumita Basu-Green, and her mother, Krishna Roy, all of Baltimore; and a brother, Goutam Roy, and a sister, Gopa Bhowmik, both of Calcutta.

Barond J. Goodhues Jr., 67, owned Dutch Mill tavern

Barond J. "Barry" Goodhues Jr., former owner of the Dutch Mill tavern on Harford Road, died Monday of lung disease at Stella Maris Hospice. He was 67 and lived in Perry Hall.

The longtime Fullerton resident owned the landmark Harford Road establishment -- it had a distinctive Dutch windmill neon sign -- from 1964 to 1991, when it was sold.

The restaurant, which he purchased with his father and brother, was known for its big bands and Dixieland ensembles, sing-alongs, disco nights and as the home of the Tired Businessmen's Band.

Born and raised in Govans, Mr. Goodhues was a 1949 graduate of Towson Catholic High School and attended Loyola College. He served in the Air Force for two years before becoming an insurance salesman until 1966. He then became manager and bartender of the Dutch Mill.

"He loved people and a good time. The business and his family were his life," said his wife of 40 years, the former Barbara Egan.

Mr. Goodhues was a communicant of Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in Towson, where a Mass of Christian burial was offered yesterday.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by three daughters, Terry McGarvey of Lutherville, Tricia Goodhues of Abingdon and Beverly Shoul of Westminster; his mother, Althea Goodhues, and sister, Betty Jean Johnson, both of Sidney, Ohio; and five grandchildren.
