Lula M. Woodland, 75, cleaning-service worker

Lula M. Woodland, a retired cleaning service worker who enjoyed cooking for family gatherings, died of cancer Tuesday at her Northwest Baltimore home. She was 75.

She was born Lula Watson in Newport News, Va., where she graduated from high school.

A resident of Baltimore since the 1940s, she was married in 1951 to John R. Woodland, a warehouseman, who died in 1972.

Mrs. Woodland worked for 20 years as a clothes presser at Ingleside Dry Cleaners in Catonsville before retiring in 1975. In recent years, she provided care for neighborhood children.

She enjoyed cooking and entertaining at outdoor barbecues in the back yard of her Royce Avenue home. Her pigs' feet and collard greens were an especially popular dish, family members said.

She also enjoyed playing pinochle.

Mrs. Woodland was a communicant of St. Ambrose Roman Catholic Church, 4502 Park Heights Ave., where a Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday.

She is survived by several nephews and nieces.
