T'Ann E. Froehlich, 89, homemaker, secretary

T'Ann Ewing Froehlich, a homemaker who became a student after raising a family and at age 62 earned a bachelor's degree in political science, died of Alzheimer's disease Feb. 10 at an assisted-living facility in Harwich, Mass. The longtime Timonium resident was 89.

Born T'Ann Ewing Wilson in Kelowna, British Columbia, and raised in Vancouver, she worked as a secretary for an engineering company after graduating from a business school.

During World War II, she moved with her family to Bermuda and was a secretary for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. She also met there and married Charles J. Froehlich Jr., a Navy submarine lieutenant commander, in 1943.

After the war, they made their home in Stoneleigh and moved in 1964 to Timonium.

Mr. Froehlich, a certified public accountant and attorney who operated the accounting firm of Froehlich and Froehlich, founded by his father, died in 2001.

Mrs. Froehlich earned her bachelor's degree in 1978 from Goucher College, where she also took equestrian classes.

"She continued riding at Goucher until her late 70s, and I'm sure it worried college officials," said a daughter, June M. Daley of Marstons Mills, Mass.

Plans for a memorial service in Baltimore were incomplete yesterday.

Mrs. Froehlich also is survived by a son, Charles J. Froehlich III of Baltimore; another daughter, Jan E. Lowndes of Parkton; two brothers, Douglas M. Wilson of Ontario and Ewing S. Wilson of Anaheim, Calif.; five grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.
