Anna B. Broyles, a homemaker and former restaurant owner, died of cancer Sunday at her Finksburg home. She was 77.

Anna Belle McElroy was born in Baltimore and raised on Mathews Street in Waverly. She was a 1947 graduate of Eastern High School, and that same year married Daniel K. Broyles.

Mrs. Broyles worked for a finance company until 1952, when she had the first of her three children. In 1959, she and her family moved to Italy, when her husband was sent there by the Koppers Co. as a project engineer overseeing the construction of a steel mill.

In 1962, they returned to Pikesville, and she worked as office manager for Ellicott Construction Co., a commercial and industrial construction company that had been established by her husband.

The couple and their children later moved to a 47-acre farm near Ellicott City, where she raised vegetables and flowers.

In 1983, she and her husband opened Danny Nolan's Irish Saloon in Elkridge, where she was known for her shrimp salad and shrimp bisque.

After selling the business in 1993, she and her husband became world travelers. In 1999, they moved to Finksburg.

She attended Gamber United Methodist Church.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at the Ruck Towson Funeral Home, 1050 York Road.

In addition to her husband of 59 years, Mrs. Broyles is survived by two sons, Barry P. Broyles of Forest Hill and Steven K. Broyles of Finksburg; a daughter, Deborah M. Cardillo of Taneytown; five grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
