August 01, 2005

Barbara S. Elliott, former owner of a Baltimore book bindery, died of heart failure Tuesday at St. Joseph Medical Center. The Oak Crest Village resident was 91.

Barbara Smith was born in Baltimore and raised in Hamilton. After graduating from the old St. James Commercial School in East Baltimore in 1929, she went to work as a secretary at the Elliott Bookbinding Co., which had been established by her future husband in the basement of his home in 1924.

In 1934, she married Charles L. Elliott Sr., who later moved the business to Rosedale Street in Walbrook. After his death in 1961, she continued operating the business until selling it in 1963.

Mrs. Elliott was a resident of Randallstown and Lutherville before moving to the Parkville retirement community in 1995.

She had been a member of the old Chatsworth United Methodist Church and was a member of the Philathea Club.

Mrs. Elliott was an avid rose grower and enjoyed playing pinochle.

A Mass of Christian burial was offered yesterday at the Roman Catholic Church of the Nativity in Timonium.

Surviving are a son, Charles L. Elliott Jr. of Houston; a daughter, Barbara B. Elliott of Riderwood; two grandsons; three great-granddaughters; and many nieces and nephews.
