Dorothy B. Mason, a retired elementary school teacher, died Friday of respiratory failure at her home in Northridge, Calif., where she moved in 1952. The former Upper Falls resident was 84.

Born Dorothy Brandt in Upper Falls, she was a 1935 graduate of Kenwood High School. She earned a degree in education from what is now Towson University and a master's degree from the University of Maryland, College Park. As a teen-ager, she rode horses and was a marbles champion.

She taught at Carroll Manor Elementary School in Baldwin and was later a supervisor. After moving to California, she taught fifth grade in Northridge.

During World War II, she met an Army sergeant and animation artist, Harold Mason, whom she married in 1952. He died in 1986.

Mrs. Mason was a dog fancier.

Plans for services were incomplete.

Survivors include a brother, J. Hammond Brandt, and a cousin, Louise Hammond "Pete" Clarke, both of Upper Falls.
