Jane Potter Ruhl, a former North Baltimore resident and elementary school educator, died Monday of Huntington's disease, a genetic brain disorder, at a nursing home in Honolulu. She was 67.

Born in Baltimore and raised in the Orchards section of North Baltimore, Miss Ruhl was a 1957 graduate of Eastern High School.

Miss Ruhl's sister, Anne Ruhl Letchworth, who also suffered from Huntington's disease, died in February.

Miss Ruhl received a bachelor's degree from Bucknell University and a master's degree in early childhood education.

In the 1960s, she moved to Honolulu, where she taught elementary school until retiring in 1994.

She had been a member of Second Presbyterian Church in Guilford and enjoyed reading and traveling.

Graveside services are private.

Miss Ruhl is survived by a brother, George R. Ruhl III of Homeland; and several nephews and nieces.
