Carol Ann Denick, an interior designer and longtime Reisterstown resident, died of cancer Monday at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. She was 47.
She was born in Baltimore and raised in Lutherville. She was a 1975 graduate of St. Timothy's School and earned a bachelor's degree in interior design from Ohio University in 1979.
After spending a year in Israel volunteering and studying, she returned to Baltimore in the early 1980s and established Paper Hang Up, a wallpaper and interior design store.
Miss Denick, who also maintained a private interior design practice, had been associated with Apex Drapery Co. in Pikesville since 1998.
"Carol was always passionate about her work and loved working with people. She was lighthearted, quick-witted and very knowledgeable," said Jeffrey Miller, president and owner of Apex Drapery. "She knew every aspect of the design business, which came easy to her. She also had a knack for the business."
Miss Denick, who was a member of the American Society of Interior Designers, enjoyed collecting contemporary clocks and working in macrame.
She had been a president of the sisterhood at Adat Chaim Congregation in Reisterstown.
Miss Denick is survived by her son, Daniel Levenstein of Reisterstown; a stepdaughter, Andrea Levenstein of Cockeysville; her parents, Theodore and Ruth Denick of Lutherville; a brother, John H. Denick of Bolton Hill; her fiance, Jeffrey Tuchman of Reisterstown; and two nieces. Her marriage to David Levenstein ended in divorce.
Services were held Tuesday.
