Ella Thompson, whose tireless efforts to bring hope to a drug-infested West Baltimore neighborhood made her a heroine of the book "The Corner," died of a heart attack yesterday while picking up computers donated for a city recreation center. She was 47."She saw the possibilities in everybody," said David Simon, co-author of the 1997 book that portrayed the battered realities of her neighborhood. "She understood innately that a 15-year-old drug dealer is still a 15-year-old. And she understood that a 38-year-old neighbor lost to heroin addiction is still a neighbor."

Baltimore's pioneer and forgotten professional social worker, Mary Ellen Richmond, who has been compared to her contemporary, Jane Addams of Chicago's Hull House, is buried on a slight knoll in Loudon Park Cemetery. Carved on the white marble tombstone is the Family Welfare Association's emblem and motto: "Light from hand to hand. Life from age to age." Richmond originated the casework method used by professional social workers. As she described it, such work "has for its immediate aim the betterment of individuals or families, one by one, as distinguished from their betterment in the mass."

Early this month, I shopped at Loehmann's for the last time. The national off-price, fashion retailer chain was bankrupt and liquidating. As a kind of monument to local fashion history and my own past, the Timonium store beckoned me from Pennsylvania for a final shopping trip. It was an emotional experience for this 69-year-old, who first shopped at Loehmann's in spring 1962. A fashionista before the word became trendy, my mother discovered the store on Joppa Road, near our Baltimore County home, and she knew her only daughter would find the perfect prom dress there.
