October 30, 2003

Juliet C. McQueen Bey, a homemaker and expert baker, died of undetermined causes Oct. 23 at her Severna Park home. She was 71.

Born Juliet C. Graham in Baltimore, she was a graduate of city public schools. In 1949, she married John E. McQueen Bey, and the couple lived in Severna Park for more than 40 years.

Mrs. Bey, who was known as Julia, enjoyed gardening and baking.

"She was known for her cheesecake, homemade breads and cookies. During the Christmas season, she'd take orders for cookies, rum cake, and baklava. She baked 20 different types of cookies," said a daughter, Sondra M. Bey of Glen Burnie, who with her three sisters assisted their mother.

FOR THE RECORD - Julia C. McQueen Bey:
In an obituary published in Thursday's editions, two survivors were inadvertently omitted. In addition to her husband and four daughters, she is survived by two sons, John H. Bey of Baltimore and Lonnie E. Bey of Severna Park.
The Sun regrets the error.

Mrs. Bey was also an accomplished seamstress who made clothes for her grandchildren and for children at her church.

She was a longtime active member at Silas First Baptist Church in Severna Park, where services were held Tuesday. A soprano, she was a member of the church's senior choir.

In addition to her husband and daughter, she is survived by three other daughters, Constance J. Christian and Cynthia Y. Bey, both of Severna Park, and Teresa M. Johnson of Glen Burnie; a sister, Doris Gilliam of Owings Mills; and two grandchildren.
