Robert Lee Jackson, 62, pastor, Army employee

The Rev. Robert Lee Jackson, a retired Baptist pastor and federal employee, died Oct. 31 of complications from Alzheimer's disease after wandering away from his Northwest Baltimore home. He was 62.

Mr. Jackson retired several years ago after 30 years as an employee of the Army at Fort Meade, where he had been a supervisor of linguistics. He had earlier worked for Bethlehem Steel Corp. at Sparrows Point.

He was former pastor of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church on West North Avenue. His most recent post was as interim pastor of Sweet Prospect Baptist Church on North Durham Street. He stepped down two years ago because of his medical condition.

Born in Baltimore and raised on East 20th Street, Mr. Jackson attended Dunbar High School, the Baltimore School of the Bible and Liberty Bible College.

Services were held yesterday at Greater Harvest Baptist Church on West Saratoga Street.

He is survived by his wife of 11 years, the former Francine Murray; two sons, Kevin Jackson and Antonio Jackson, both of Baltimore; a daughter, Kimberly Jackson of Baltimore; two stepdaughters, Cheryl Murray and Shavon McGhee-bey, both of Baltimore; three sisters, Estelle J. Brown, Mary Etta Lewis and Ernestine J. Dunston, all of Baltimore; and nine grandchildren.

Mary Clare Moore, 74, teacher at Notre Dame

Mary Clare Moore, who taught English for nearly two decades at the Institute of Notre Dame in East Baltimore, died of colon cancer Oct. 31 at her Cockeysville home. She was 74.

Mrs. Moore was a faculty member at the Catholic girls high school -- her alma mater -- from 1977 until retiring in 1996.

She began her career as an educator in the early 1960s at Villa Julie College, where she taught speech and drama for eight years. During the 1970s, she taught elementary pupils at St. Bernard's Parochial School in Baltimore and public speaking at Baltimore County's three community college campuses.

Born and raised in Govans, Mary Clare Maynes was a 1945 graduate of the Institute of Notre Dame and earned her bachelor's degree in education from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland in 1949.

That year she married Robert V. Moore, who died in 1973.

While living in Loch Raven Village from 1951 to 1963, she was publisher and editor of the Village Crier, a community newspaper. She later moved to Cedarcroft, living there for many years before moving to Cockeysville in 1991.

Deeply religious, Mrs. Moore served as a Eucharistic minister and lector at the Roman Catholic Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Baynesville and St. Mary of the Assumption in Govans. She also conducted public speaking courses at area Catholic churches and at St. Mary's Seminary & University in Roland Park.

In recent years, she was a communicant of Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in Towson, where a Mass of Christian burial was offered Monday.

She is survived by three sons, the Rev. Christopher P. Moore of Hagerstown, Timothy J. Moore of Frederick and John D. Moore of Fullerton; four daughters, Victoria R. McElroy of Baltimore, Kathleen M. Fox of Monkton, Jane F. Moore of Frederick and Annemarie Mayers of Joppa; a brother, Patrick Maynes of Carney; 13 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
