May 15, 2008|By Jacques Kelly

Sister Mary Raymond Logue, a member of the School Sisters of Notre Dame who was a former parochial school principal, died of septic shock Friday at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. She was 70.

Born Elizabeth Carolyn Logue in Baltimore and raised on Montford Avenue, she attended St. Wenceslaus School and was a 1955 graduate of the Institute of Notre Dame, where she was an accomplished basketball player known for her hook shot. She was later inducted into the school's Hall of Fame.

She entered the religious congregation in 1956 and received the name Mary Raymond. She earned a degree in elementary education at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland and a master's degree from the University of Maryland, College Park.

She taught at St. Mary's Parochial School in Annapolis and was principal at St. Benedict's School on Wilkens Avenue in Southwest Baltimore in the 1970s. She then headed St. Michael's School in Silver Spring for 28 years.

"Throughout her career, Sister Raymond was an outstanding educator and administrator," said Sister Bernice Feilinger. "She was well-respected by her faculty, staff and students, and she was known for going out of her way to ensure that every student -regardless of his or her economic background - received a quality education."

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 10 a.m. today , at Villa Assumpta, 6401 N. Charles Street.

Survivors include two brothers, Leo Logue of Kirby, W.Va. and Raymond Logue of Baltimore; and nieces and a nephew.
