Donna L. Peabody, a retired florist and former Bel Air resident, died Tuesday of cancer at a hospital in Key West, Fla. She was 68.

Donna Lewis Adams was born in Baltimore and raised in Hampden.

After graduating from Western High School in 1959, she began her career as a florist.

In 1977, she married James T. Peabody, and the couple established Flowers By Michael and Four Seasons Flowers.

"We had stores in Pikesville, Overlea, Cold Spring Lane and Harford Mall," said Mr. Peabody.

They also owned and operated a second business, Donna Jean Candies.

After selling their business in 1995, the couple retired to Big Pine Key, Fla., where Mrs. Peabody enjoyed gardening and watching tennis.

She had been active in the Order of the Eastern Star and was a former officer.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday at Burgee-Henss-Seitz Funeral Home, 3631 Falls Road, Hampden.

In addition to her husband, Mrs. Peabody is survived by a brother, Mark Adams of Venice, Fla.; and many nieces and nephews. An earlier marriage ended in divorce.
