Mary Magelean Wynn, 67, middle school teacher

Mary Magelean Wynn, a retired teacher, died Monday of cancer at her Odenton home. She was 67.

The former longtime Chesapeake, Va., resident moved to Mary Wynn Odenton several years ago.

She taught middle school in Suffolk, Va., public schools for 18 years before retiring in 1995.

One of 14 children, Mary M. Grant was born in Courtland, Va., and raised in Petersburg, Va., where she dropped out of high school to help support her family.

"She always wanted to get a college education and returned to school after her children were grown to earn her GED. She was 39 and she finally realized her dream," said a daughter, Phyllis G. Anderson of Martinez, Ga.

Mrs. Wynn earned a bachelor's degree in elementary education in 1977 and a master's degree in urban affairs in 1985, both from Norfolk State University in Virginia, and was awarded an honorary doctorate in the humanities by Trinity Hall College and Seminary in Louisville, Ky., in 1995.

She was a longtime member of the Church of God in Christ and in recent years was an active member of Kingdom Builders Church of God in Christ in Hanover, Md.

In 1950, she married Joe Nick Wynn Sr., from whom she was divorced in 1979.

Services will be held at noon Monday at Garden Worship Center, 1001 Church St., Norfolk.

In addition to her daughter, she is survived by two sons, Joe N. Wynn Jr. of Bladensburg and Darryal Omar Wynn of Baltimore; two other daughters, Gloria Ann Lilly of Odenton and Brenda Cypress of Hampton, Va.; a brother, Robert Grant of Richmond, Va.; six sisters, Edna Burrows, Ella Mae Wilkins, Janie Powell, Iris Epps and Dorothy Mae Jackson, all of Petersburg, and Evelyn Dancy of Sierra Vista, Ariz.; five grandchildren; and two great-grand- daughters.

Ella S. Brogden, 100, Baltimore housekeeper

In her West Baltimore neighborhood, she would provide lodging, plates of food and even small loans to neighbors.

"She opened her doors to assist her neighbors," said her granddaughter, Sharon Dutton of Baltimore.

She was married for many years to William Lorenzo Brogden, who died in 1955.
