Mary Louise Bishop, 68, homemaker

Mary Louise Bishop, a homemaker, died Wednesday of liver disease at Stella Maris Hospice. The Timonium resident was 68.

A graduate of the Institute of Notre Dame, the former Mary Louise Mohlenrich worked as a clerk for Blue Cross and Blue Shield until her marriage in 1951 to George W. Bishop Jr.; he died in 1973.

She married Warren R. Lutzke in 1980, but kept her first husband's last name. The couple lived in the Florida Keys until Mr. Lutzke's death in 1996.

Ms. Bishop was an active member of the Colony Club, a women's social organization and bridge club.

Private services were held yesterday in Timonium.

She is survived by two sons, George W. Bishop III of South Williamsport, Pa., and Howard P. Bishop of Baltimore; a daughter, Mary B. Greenberg of Catonsville; a sister, Ann C. Telford of Shrewsbury, Pa. and two grandchildren.

Warren L. Earll, 77, worked in lumber business

Warren L. Earll, who worked in the family lumber business for 45 years, died of a heart attack Thursday at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The Sparks resident was 77.

Mr. Earll, who was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., joined the business -- Earll Forestry Products -- in the late 1940s after he graduated from Western Maryland College in Westminster.

He was commissioned a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army during World War II, but his career was cut short during a training accident with the Second Armored Division at Fort Knox, Ky.

At a Western Maryland alumni reunion 10 years ago, he met a former classmate, Dorry Jones Kinder.

"We hadn't seen each other in 50 years and both of us were widowed," she said. "We started dating and married in 1990."

The couple remained active in the college alumni association.

Mr. Earll spent 40 years singing bass with the Knights of Harmony, a barbershop quartet from Timonium, and coached several vocalists in the harmonizing style.

Services are at 1 p.m. Thursday at St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 1609 Kurtz Ave., Lutherville.

In addition to his wife, Mr. Earll is survived by a son, David W. Earll of Downington, Pa.; a daughter, Marilyn J. Wagner of Cape Coral, Fla.; his brother, Homer C. Earll, of Annapolis; and four grandchildren.
