Marion G. Stringer, a retired Notre Dame Preparatory School algebra teacher, died Thursday of complications from a fall she suffered at her Towson home. She was 90 and at her death was a resident of Oak Crest Care Center.

Born Marion Augusta Guidera and raised in Westbury, N.Y., she took awards in mathematics as a student at Adelphi University and then worked as a data analyst and project manager at Hooper Ratings in Manhattan during the 1940s.

She married Harry Stringer, a wholesale building supplies salesman, in 1948 and lived in Kansas City and St. Paul, Minn., before settling in Towson, where they raised five children. She began teaching algebra at Notre Dame Preparatory School in 1962 and retired there 25 years later.

"She was an exceptionally bright, high-energy person who touched the lives of many young Notre Dame girls," said her daughter, Molly Stringer Meagher of Allentown, Pa. "For years, young women would stop us in stores to share fond memories of high school and to say how much they loved my mother."

Mrs. Stringer enjoyed golf and bridge. She was a Greater Baltimore Medical Center volunteer, traveled with friends and spent time with her grandchildren.

A funeral Mass will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church, Ware Avenue, Towson.

In addition to her daughter, survivors include three sons, Gavin Stringer of Baltimore, Baltimore County Judge Patrick Stringer of Towson and Thomas Stringer of Santa Monica, Calif.; another daughter, Gerry Stringer of Montreal; 15 grandchildren; and two great-grandsons. Her husband of 34 years died in 1982.
