She retired in 1983 and moved from Severna Park to Winter Garden, Fla., in 1997.

She was a watercolorist and accomplished needleworker. Her crocheting won awards at the Maryland State Fair.

A funeral Mass will be offered at 10 a.m. Sept. 13 at Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 400 S. Chester St.

Her husband of 25 years, stevedore Joseph J. Krolicki, died in 1960.

Surviving are two sons, Joseph S. Krolicki of Winter Garden and Raymond J. Krolicki of Ocoee; four grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter.
