December 31, 2003

Anne Thelma Langenfelder, a retired state roads employee, died of complications from pneumonia Thursday at her Kingsville home. She was 100.

Born Anna Thelma Stickles in Castleman's Ferry, Va., she attended a one-room school before moving to the Texas section of Cockeysville. She grew up on a farm that is now Longview Golf Course. She attended the old Towson Normal School and briefly taught physical education at an Owings Mills public school.

In 1933, Mrs. Langenfelder joined the old Maryland State Roads Commission as a receptionist. She was later chief of the hauling permits department and worked in the state office building in downtown Baltimore. She retired in 1963.

She was formerly active in the Maryland Kidney Foundation.

Mrs. Langenfelder enjoyed travel, gardening and entertaining family and friends.

Her husband of 11 years, George H. Langenfelder, owner of the heavy-construction company C.J. Langenfelder & Son, died in 1974.

Services were held yesterday in Perry Hall.

She is survived by three stepdaughters, Norma Jean Helms of Towson, Rita Weber of Rehoboth Beach, Del., and Georgia Linthicum of Owings Mills; many stepgrandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
