September 17, 2004

Sister Paul Marie Hynes, who taught at an Elkridge parochial school for 34 years, died of cancer Monday at her order's motherhouse in the Woodbrook section of Baltimore County. She was 82.

Born Dorothy Hynes in Baltimore and raised in Irvington, she attended the old St. Jerome's Commercial School and entered the School Sisters of Notre Dame in 1941. She was given the religious name Sister Paul Marie.

She taught elementary school subjects for 60 years, beginning her career in Malden, Mass., and later teaching at St. Margaret in Bel Air and St. Paul in Ellicott City. Assigned to St. Augustine in Elkridge since 1970, she stopped teaching because of failing health this year.

A funeral Mass was offered Wednesday at Villa Assumpta.

Survivors include her brother, the Rev. Gerald Hynes, a Passionist priest at St. Ursula Roman Catholic Church in Parkville; a sister, Elizabeth H. Sanders of St. Augustine, Fla.; and nieces and nephews.
