Angeline T. Duklewski, 76, businesswoman, consultant

Angeline Tricoglou Duklewski, a retired businesswoman, died Friday at her Ednor Gardens home after a long illness. She was 76.

Born Angeline Aleck in Istanbul, Turkey, she came to the United States with her mother and sister while her father was serving in the U.S. Navy. The family settled in Philadelphia and later Baltimore, where she graduated from Patterson High School in 1941.

Ten years later, she married Michael Tricoglou, who died in 1977.

Mrs. Duklewski worked as a claims adjuster for the Social Se curity Administration from 1960 to 1980. Later, she was vice president and comptroller of two family businesses: EDM Corp. in Baltimore, a manufacturer of water conditioners; and Ab-Cor Ltd., a flooring company now based in New Oxford, Pa. She also served as a consultant for KSR Associates in New Oxford. She retired in the mid-1980s.

Mrs. Duklewski donated her body to the state anatomy board.

She was a member of the Daughters of Penelope and the Order of Ahepa. She was a communicant of the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation in Baltimore, where a memorial service will be held May 21 after regular services.

She is survived by her husband, Melvin Duklewski, whom she married in 1988; a daughter, Patricia Hash of Fallston; four stepsons, Anthony Trikoglou of Baltimore, Joseph Duklewski of Columbia, James Duklewski of New Oxford, Pa., and Samuel Duklewski of Memphis, Tenn.; two sisters, Ernestine Thomas of Towson and Mary Craten of Timonium; 14 grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.

James H. Brown, 48, criminal defense attorney

James Herbert Brown, a lawyer and avid sailor, died Saturday of brain cancer at Genesis Eldercare Center in Annapolis. He was 48 and lived in Edgewater.

At the time of his death, Mr. Brown was a criminal defense attorney in Washington, but his dream was to become a boat designer. He was studying naval architecture through a correspondence course, and was planning to visit China to learn about boat building, his wife said.

"He was a free spirit, and he was a wonderful seaman," said the former Twyla Kay, whom he married in 1981.

Mr. Brown was born in Syracuse, N.Y., and graduated from Onondaga (N.Y.) High School in 1969, after which he worked for a time as a commercial fisherman off the Oregon coast. He graduated from Syracuse University in 1977 and received his law degree at George Mason University School of Law in Arlington, Va., in 1982.

Mr. Brown's mother taught him to sail as a boy, and it became a lifelong passion. He met his wife while teaching her to sail in Virginia. The couple moved to Edgewater two years after they married.

The couple enjoyed sailing the Chesapeake Bay, taking at least one long excursion a year on their 32-foot boat, called One More Time.

A burial at sea is planned.

In addition to his wife, Mr. Brown is survived by his parents, Margaret and Jack Brown of Syracuse; a brother, William Brown of Toledo, Ore.; and a sister, Patricia Tassini of Syracuse.

Sister Margaret Widmann, 49, helped establish a `sister city'

Sister Margaret Widmann, who helped establish a "sister city" relationship between the Sisters of Mercy in Baltimore and the village of Calle Real in El Salvador, died Thursday of cancer at University of Maryland Medical Center. She was 49.

Sister Peg, as she was known in her religious community, was a native of Austin, Texas. She graduated from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland in 1974 and received a master's degree in education of the learning disabled from the Johns Hopkins University in 1986, the same year she entered the Sisters of Mercy. She took her final vows Nov. 30, 1991.

She taught at Immaculate Conception School in Washington, Mary E. Rodman Elementary School and Hazelwood elementary and middle schools in Baltimore, and North Dorchester Middle School in Hurlock between 1986 and 1998. She also was a missionary in Puerto Cortes, Honduras.

In August 1992, she and seven other Sisters of Mercy from Baltimore spent a week in El Salvador, helping to develop a medicinal herb garden and a building to dry and package herbs as part of a National University of El Salvador study.

Services were held Saturday .

She is survived by her stepfather, William Folger of College Park; a brother, Arthur Widmann of Bowie; and a niece and nephew.
