Mary B. Wildy, a retired day care worker, died of congestive heart failure Dec. 20 at University of Maryland Medical Center. The Northwest Baltimore resident was 77.

Born Mary Brent Hudnell in Northumberland County, Va., she moved to Baltimore as a young woman and worked as an aide at the old Hospital for the Women of Maryland in Bolton Hill.

In 1949, she married Charles E. Wildy, a painter with the city Department of Education. He died in 2001.

Mrs. Wildy was a licensed day care provider and looked after six children in her home before retiring about 10 years ago.

She enjoyed travel and playing bingo at the Ruscombe Gardens apartments, where she had lived for the past five years.

Services will be at 11 a.m. tomorrow at New Shiloh Baptist Church, 2100 N. Monroe St., where she had been president of the Willing Workers, a group whose members visit the sick and infirm.

Survivors include two sons, Gordon Pinkney and Charles E. Wildy Jr., both of Baltimore; a daughter, Denise Wildy of Windsor Mill; a brother, George Wormley of Randallstown; five grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren.
