Marjorie J. Lewis, a retired Baltimore educator and Colts fan, died of cardiac arrest March 29 at Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville. She was 82.

She was born and raised Marjorie Judith Flower in Walpole, Mass., and moved to Towson in 1941 to attend what is now Towson University.

She earned a bachelor's degree in education in 1944 and began teaching in 1951 at Curtis Bay Elementary School. Later, she taught at Irvington Elementary School. In the 1960s, she became a guidance counselor at John Eager Howard Elementary School and retired in 1983 from Laurence G. Paquin Middle/High School.

The longtime resident of Adamsview Road in Woodlawn, who moved to the retirement community in 1990, had been an avid Colts fan and active member of Colts Corral Number 9.

"Being a Colts fan was a huge part of my parents' lives," said her daughter, Susan Lewis Bodner of Arlington, Va. Mrs. Lewis' husband of 38 years, Walter J. Lewis Jr., died in 1989.

Mrs. Lewis was a member of Emmarts United Methodist Church in Woodlawn. After moving to the retirement community, she joined Charlestown United Methodist Church.

A memorial service will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday at Charlestown, 711 Maiden Choice Lane.

Also surviving are two grandchildren. Another daughter, Elizabeth "Beth" Lewis, died in 2002.
