December 04, 2008|By FREDERICK N. RASMUSSEN

Dr. Charles Ellis Ellicott, a retired Lutherville internist who worked with the disabled, died of pneumonia Nov. 25 at the Broadmead retirement community in Cockeysville. He was 85.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Dr. Ellicott was a 1941 graduate of the Gilman School. He earned a bachelor's degree in botany from Yale University and his medical degree from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

He completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at what is now Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Vanderbilt University and the Mary Imogene Bassett Hospital in Cooperstown, N.Y.

In 1950, Dr. Ellicott married Dr. Marjorie Jean Foote, who also graduated from the Hopkins medical school.

The couple moved to Lexington, Mass., where Dr. Ellicott established his medical practice. After his wife's death in 1975, he returned to Baltimore and joined an internal medical practice in Lutherville.

In addition to staff appointments at Greater Baltimore Medical Center and St. Joseph Medical Center, Dr. Ellicott was appointed the first medical director at Broadmead in 1979. He stepped down from the position in 1985.

After retiring from the practice of medicine in 1988, he moved to the retirement community in 1988.

Because he cared for his disabled daughter, Adrianne Ellicott, who died in 1993, Dr. Ellicott became active with a number of organizations serving people with disabilities, including The Chimes of Baltimore.

Dr. Ellicott was an accomplished woodworker and watercolorist. He enjoyed vacationing in New England and Maine.

A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. Dec. 29 at Broadmead, 13801 York Road.

Surviving are two other daughters, Dr. Abbie M. Ellicott of Severna Park and Dr. Aimee G. Ellicott of Los Angeles; and four grandchildren.
