Annette H.C. Walsh, 77, preservationist activist

Annette Hunt Cromwell Walsh, whose interests were her family and historic preservation, died Monday at Sinai Hospital as the result of a stroke. She was 77.

Born Annette Hunt Cromwell in Ruxton, she was a 1945 graduate of Roland Park Country School and attended William & Mary College. She was a descendant of one of the brothers of Johns Hopkins.

Mrs. Walsh lived in Garrison from the time of her marriage to Semmes G. "Buck" Walsh in 1952.

She was involved for 25 years with the Maryland House and Garden Tours, of which she once served as president. She was a former trustee of the Hammond Harwood House in Annapolis and the Hoover Low Vision Center at Greater Baltimore Medical Center and had been a volunteer at GBMC since its inception. She was an avid reader and a longtime parishioner of St. Thomas Church in Garrison and was active with the Colonial Dames of Maryland.

Services were held Thursday.

In addition to her husband, Mrs. Walsh is survived by three daughters, Annette "Tenna" Bergsma of Sleepy Hollow, Ill., Marion Hopkins Curtis of Lions Bay, British Columbia, and Jacquelyn Cromwell Walsh of Waltham, Mass; a son, Semmes G. "Mid" Walsh of Boston; and a sister, Mrs. C. Tilghman Levering of Ruxton.
