A longtime Riderwood resident, Mrs. Neumayer had resided for the past decade at the Parkville retirement community. Her husband died in 2000.

Mrs. Neumayer enjoyed playing pinochle and canasta, and was an avid reader. She also enjoyed crossword puzzles and listening to music.

Mrs. Neumayer was a member for nearly 60 years of Hiss United Methodist Church in Parkville.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Monday in the chapel of Oak Crest Village, 8820 Walther Blvd.

Surviving are sons Daniel A. Neumayer Jr. of Oakland, Calif.; Thomas F. Neumayer of Mitchells, Va., and Paul E. Neumayer of Towson; five grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
