Shirley A. Hull, 67

Bank worker, Republican

December 15, 2006

Shirley A. Hull, a retired bank worker and secretary who had been active in Republican politics, died of a heart attack Sunday at her Forest Hill home. She was 67.

Born Shirley A. Roberts in Baltimore, she was raised on Valley Street. She was a 1957 graduate of Seton High School and attended business school for two years.

She worked for Equitable Trust Co. and Maryland National Bank for 30 years in customer records and computer programming. After leaving the bank in the early 1990s, she worked as a secretary and in the financial operations of Helen Bentley & Associates in Lutherville, a firm headed by former Rep. Helen Delich Bentley.

She had gotten to know Mrs. Bentley while working in her political campaigns. Mrs. Hull retired in 1999.

"She was well-known in Republican circles in Harford County," said Mrs. Bentley, a former U.S. maritime commissioner.

Mrs. Hull was an avid flower and vegetable gardener. She collected wolf figurines and liked reading about the lore and lives of wolves, said her husband of six years, Raymond A. Hull Jr., a retired IRS auditor who is her only survivor.

Services were yesterday.

Her first marriage, to Edward Prell, was annulled; her husband of more than 20 years, Charles Payne, died in 1989.
