Dorothy M. Eberhardt, a retired teacher and watercolorist, died of respiratory failure Thursday at Stella Maris Hospice in Timonium. The Jarrettsville resident was 96.

Dorothy Mack was born and raised in Pacific Grove, Calif. In 1929, she earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley and a master's degree in religious education from Union Theological Seminary in New York City in 1933.

For a decade until retiring in 1977, Mrs. Eberhardt was a first-grade teacher at St. James Academy in Monkton.

She was a communicant of St. James Episcopal Church in Monkton, where she was organist and choir director for many years.

A self-taught artist, Mrs. Eberhardt lived in Tenants Harbor, Maine, before returning to Jarrettsville in 2004. She drew her inspiration for her numerous seascapes and landscapes from the rugged Maine coast.

While living in Tenants Harbor, Mrs. Eberhardt played the organ at the Port Clyde Baptist Church.

Her husband of 46 years, the Rev. Charles R. Eberhardt, died in 1983.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. today at Immanuel Episcopal Church, 1509 Glencoe Road, Glencoe.

Surviving are two sons, David M. Eberhardt of Guilford and the Rev. Timothy C. Eberhardt of Randolph, Vt.; a daughter, Mary E. Holtzman of Monkton; eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. Another son, Jonathan Eberhardt, died in 2000.
