Patricia Freed, a retired elementary school teacher, died of cancer Monday at her Cub Hill home. She was 65.

She taught at Baltimore County's Elmwood Elementary School and St. James Lutheran Day School, both in Overlea, and taught remedial reading at the independent Odyssey School in Baltimore, which specializes in children with learning disabilities. She also did private tutoring.

Born Patricia Allyn Hovis in Gastonia, N.C., and raised in Middle River, she was a 1954 graduate of Kenwood High School. She earned a degree in education from the University of Maryland, College Park and a master's in remedial reading from Towson State University in 1988.

She was married for 41 years to Dr. Paul E. Freed, a dentist who practices in Ruxton and survives her. She was his office manager for many years.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at St. John's Lutheran Church, Manor and Dulaney Valley roads, where she was a member of a bell choir.

She is also survived by a son, Paul Edward Freed Jr. of Towson; a daughter, Sherrill Elizabeth Delmont of Hampstead; her mother, Era Stewart Hovis of Cub Hill; and three grandchildren.
