August 11, 2002

Elizabeth C. Trexler, a homemaker and active member of Patterson Park Baptist Church for more than 70 years, died of pneumonia Wednesday at the Heritage Center in Dundalk. She was 94.

Mrs. Trexler, who had resided in her Philadelphia Road home in Rosedale since 1937, was born Elizabeth Crizer in Appalachia, Va. She moved with her family to Clifton Forge, Va., where she graduated from high school.

After graduating from secretarial school in Staunton, Va., she worked as a secretary to the president of Virginia Power & Light Co. In 1927, she married Robert L. Trexler, and the couple moved to Baltimore.

Mr. Trexler, a former manager for the Glenn L. Martin Co. in Middle River, died in 1986.

Mrs. Trexler joined Patterson Park Baptist Church in 1930. Through the years, she was church organist and taught teacher's training classes and Sunday school. She was also active in the Baltimore Baptist Association and had been director of the mothers club at the Canton Baptist Mission.

She enjoyed Bible study, reading mysteries and sewing.

Services for Mrs. Trexler were held yesterday.

She is survived by her two daughters, Carolyn T. Rogers of Rosedale and Sarah E. Elliott of Orange County, Calif.; 11 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and a great-great-granddaughter.
