Anne T. McGraw, 84

Educator and volunteer

April 04, 2007

Anne T. McGraw, a retired elementary school teacher and Orioles fan, died of cancer March 28 at her Parkville home. She was 84.

Anne Talbott was born in Baltimore and raised in Waverly. She was a 1940 graduate of Seton High School.

After her children were grown, she enrolled at Essex Community College, where she graduated with honors. In the 1970s, she earned a bachelor's degree from what is now Towson University.

Mrs. McGraw was a teacher and vice principal for 20 years at St. Joseph parochial school in Fullerton until her retirement in 1985.

An Orioles fan since childhood and a season ticket holder for more than three decades, Mrs. McGraw and her husband had traveled to Florida for the past 23 years to attend spring training.

"While her illness prevented them from attending this year, she listened to or watched most of the games," said her daughter, Elizabeth A. McGraw-Wagner of Parkville.

The longtime Colts fan also liked spending time at a second home the couple owned in Rehoboth Beach, Del.

A voracious reader, Mrs. McGraw had been a volunteer at the Parvkille-Carney Library. She also volunteered at Our Daily Bread, where she was known for her casseroles.

Mrs. McGraw was a member and former president of American Legion Auxiliary Post 22 in Towson.

She was a communicant of St. Isaac Jogues Roman Catholic Church in Parkville, where a Mass of Christian burial was offered Monday.

Also surviving are her husband of 60 years, Eugene J. "Woody" McGraw Sr. a retired Baltimore police officer; two sons, Eugene J. McGraw Jr. of Essex and H. Craig McGraw of Towson; four grandchildren; and a great-grandson.
