In 1947, she married Morgan Hall Baldwin, now a retired manufacturer's representative.

For many years, the couple lived in Annapolis, where Mrs. Baldwin volunteered at historic Hammond-Harwood House. They moved to Blakehurst in 1994. She was a former board member of the nearby Pickersgill retirement community.

She was an avid gardener and had been a member of the Hardy Garden Club in Ruxton. She enjoyed watching baseball, lacrosse and football.

Mrs. Baldwin was a communicant of St. Stephen's Traditional Episcopal Church, 11856 Mays Chapel Road in Timonium, where a memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday.
