Frances Lammert Mulheran, 85, school vice principal

March 21, 2006

Frances Lammert Mulheran, a vice principal of Bear Creek Elementary School in Dundalk for 30 years, died of heart failure March 14 in Haverford, Pa. The former Dundalk resident was 85.

Frances Lammert attended Frostburg public schools and graduated from what is now Frostburg State University in 1942.

She then began a 43-year career in Baltimore County public schools, at first teaching at Dundalk Elementary School.

She maintained a stern and professional look but had a great, dry sense of humor, said Ann Ritchey, a veteran teacher at Bear Creek Elementary. When that school opened in 1955, Mrs. Mulheran transferred there as the vice principal and held that position until her retirement in 1985.

She earned a master's degree in education from the University of Maryland in 1956.

She was married for 32 years to Daniel T. Mulheran, former director of the Duda-Ruck Funeral Home. Mr. Mulheran died in 1994.

The pair immersed themselves in Dundalk civic life. They also loved to travel across the country and in Europe.

After her retirement, Mrs. Mulheran volunteered at the National Aquarium in Baltimore and with the Dundalk Concert Association.

Funeral services were held Friday at the Duda-Ruck Funeral Home.

Survivors include a nephew, Howard Meyers of St. Davids, Pa., and three great-nephews.
