Her husband of 58 years, Capt. Richard A. Teel, a retired naval officer, died in 1994.

Mrs. Teel enjoyed traveling and gardening.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Naval Academy's St. Andrews Chapel in Annapolis.

She is survived by a daughter, Nancy Reeder Teel of Milford, Del. Another daughter, Carey Marshall Teel, died in 1939.
