Martha Lambert Patrick, a retired administrator at Catonsville Community College, died of pancreatic cancer Thursday at her home in Port Orange, Fla. The former Pasadena resident was 77.

A Maryland resident for all but the last two years of her life, Martha Quandt was born in Baltimore and graduated from Forest Park High School in 1944.

Known to family and friends as Marty, she received a bachelor's degree from the Johns Hopkins University in liberal arts and a master's degree in modern studies from Loyola College.

Mrs. Patrick began working for Catonsville Community College in 1964. She started as an assistant to the president and was director of public relations and publications when she retired in 1986. As director of public relations and publications, she supervised the college press.

She married Donald Patrick, a math and science teacher for Baltimore public high schools, in 1981. Her marriage to Roy Lambert ended in divorce in 1978.

Mrs. Patrick enjoyed boating in her 30-foot cabin cruiser on the Chesapeake Bay and writing for boating organizations.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son, Ralph Lambert of Ellicott City; a daughter, Kathleen Lambert Ratican of Sykesville; and three grandchildren.

A memorial gathering will be held at 2 p.m. April 27 in Room 100 of the Oakland Mills Interfaith Center, 5885 Robert Oliver Place, Columbia.
