February 04, 2005

Elizabeth T. Braden, a homemaker and former Cedarcroft resident, died of a brain tumor Jan. 28 at Candle Light Cove, an assisted-living facility in Easton. She was 91.

She was born Elizabeth Theresa Corrigan in Baltimore and raised on Ensor Street. After graduating from Eastern High School in 1930, she worked for several years as a secretary for the McCarthy-Hicks liquor distributorship owned by her family.

After her 1936 marriage, Mrs. Braden left McCarthy-Hicks to raise her family in Northwood and Cedarcroft. She was a former communicant of St. Pius X Roman Catholic Church in Rodgers Forge, and volunteered for the Heart Association of Maryland.

Since 1981, she had lived in Easton with her husband, and they moved to the assisted-living facility last year.

She enjoyed golfing and bridge and was a former member of the Country Club of Maryland and Talbot Country Club.

Plans for a memorial service were incomplete.

Mrs. Braden is survived by her husband of 68 years, Joseph M. Braden Sr., a retired McCarthy-Hicks salesman; two sons, Joseph M. Braden Jr. of Philadelphia and J. Donald Braden of Centreville, Queen Anne's County; a daughter, Bette Jean Heins of Pinehurst, N.C.; six grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren.
