Martha Joan Cartier, 87, owner of liquor store

January 17, 2003

Martha Joan Cartier, a former Dundalk liquor store owner, died of heart failure Saturday at Genesis Eldercare in Severna Park. She was 87, and had been a longtime Dundalk resident before moving to her daughter's Pasadena home about three years ago.

Mrs. Cartier owned the Dundalk Liquor Store, at Dundalk Avenue and Center Place. She operated it with her husband of 35 years, Joseph J. Cartier Jr., who died in 1969. She sold the business about 15 years ago.

She also held a cosmetology license and assisted her sister, the late Clara Z. Miller, at Clara's Beauty Shop, adjacent to the liquor store.

Born Martha Joan Zelubowski in Cleveland, she spent her teen years in Passaic, N.J.

Mrs. Cartier was a former member of St. Rita and Holy Rosary Roman Catholic churches.

A funeral Mass was offered yesterday at St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in Severna Park, where Mrs. Cartier was a member.

Survivors include a daughter, Martha "Marty" Sade of Pasadena; four grandsons; and eight great-grandchildren. Another daughter, Marleen Joy Cartier, died in the 1950s.
