Patricia A. Knepper, a former registered nurse who worked for the past 23 years in real estate sales, died of cancer Wednesday at her Stevensville home. She was 75.

Born and raised Patricia Ann Sherrard in Columbus, Ohio, she earned her nursing degree in 1951 from the Mount Carmel School of Nursing there. After working in the emergency room at Mount Carmel Hospital, she held nursing jobs in San Diego and Sturgeon Bay, Wis., before moving to Severna Park in 1974.

She was a nurse from 1974 until 1982 at North Arundel Hospital - now Baltimore Washington Medical Center.

After earning her real estate license in 1982, she began her new career with Brian Brandon Real Estate in Severna Park, and the next year moved to Grasonville and joined Anderson-Stokes Real Estate there.

Since the mid-1980s, Mrs. Knepper had been an agent with Chris Coile's Champion Realty Inc. in Stevensville.

She enjoyed spending winters in Aruba and taking cruises. She also was a hospice volunteer and a former member of the Red Hat Society.

She was a communicant of St. Christopher Roman Catholic Church in Chester, where a funeral Mass was offered Friday.

Survivors include her husband of 45 years, Joseph E. Knepper Jr., a retired state aviation planner; a son, Joseph E. Knepper III of Catonsville; two daughters, Kristy A. Martorana of Arbutus and Nancy A. Knepper of White Marsh; and six grandchildren. Another son, Mark Knepper, died in 1988.
