Marguerite B. "Marge" Martin, a quality control manager and outdoorswoman, died at Sinai Hospital Sept. 15, five days after being injured while riding her bicycle.

The Roland Park resident was 61.

Ms. Martin, who was wearing a helmet, was found unconscious on North Charles Street near Cold Spring Lane from a severe injury to the back of her head.

City police said yesterday that there was no indication a vehicle had been involved.

The former Marguerite Baum was born in Baltimore and raised in Howard Park.

For the past 30 years, Ms. Martin had worked in quality control for Westinghouse Corp. and its successor company, Northrop Grumman in Linthicum.

She conducted quality control and system assessments for clients as varied as the U.S. Postal Service and the Airborne Warning and Control Systems used by England and France.

Ms. Martin enjoyed jogging, swimming and yoga in addition to riding her bike.

She was also an accomplished cabinetmaker, family members said.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Oct. 1 at the Stoney Run Friends Meeting House, 5116 N. Charles St.
