English teacher

November 13, 2006

Beulah Georges, a retired high school English teacher, died of a stroke Tuesday at Blakehurst Health Center in Towson. She was 83.

Born Beulah George in Towson above the Candy Kitchen, a business her father owned, she was a 1939 Towson High School graduate and earned an English degree at Goucher College. In 1956 she married Dr. Constant J. Georges, a dentist who is now retired.

She began teaching in the Baltimore County public school system and later earned a master's degree at what is now Towson University. She taught at Towson and Sparrows Point High Schools and at Notre Dame Preparatory School. She retired from Stemmers Run Middle School in the mid-1980s.

Mrs. Georges also taught a creative writing course for senior citizens at the Bykota Center in Towson. She enjoyed oil painting, knitting and needlepoint.

She also sold real estate for the Baker and Grempler firms from 1966 to 1987.

"She helped first-time homebuyers and people relocating to the area," said her son Dr. Nicholas Georges of Timonium.

She received a 1986 citizen citation from Gov. William Donald Schaefer for her volunteer work with the University of Maryland's department of pediatrics. She helped with a fundraising campaign for a children's dialysis center.

Services were held Friday at the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of the Annunciation, where she was a member and a past president of its Women's Guild.

In addition to her son and husband, survivors include another son, Dr. James C. Georges of Phoenix; a brother, Harris James George of Timonium; and two grandchildren.
