Anne M. "Nan" Pinkard, former president of the France-Merrick Foundation, whose philanthropy through the years had a profound effect on many of Baltimore's cultural and educational institutions, died of respiratory failure Saturday at the Brightwood retirement community in Lutherville. She was 83. "She was a great leader, and her death is a huge loss to the community," Robert W. Schaefer, the foundation's executive director, said yesterday. "There were literally hundreds of organizations both large and small that she helped and where a $25,000 grant could be just as important and meaningful as a million-dollar one."

Last year, even as she grew weaker from an illness she'd had for many months, the Rev. Josephine Pinkard of Severna Park kept telling her daughter, Avanette, of a dream she couldn't get out of her head. "I see the roof [of your business] opening up, and God showering the place with blessings," she told Avanette, who owns Essential Essence, a Laurel day spa and beauty salon. "I see it growing by leaps and bounds." At the time, the imagery seemed absurd. The Pinkards had started the business in 1997, offering their Severna Park home as collateral for a loan.

There's a "family quality" to the Young Victorian Theatre Company, says company music director Ernie Green. And that trait was evident at a recent reception for Baltimore's resident Gilbert and Sullivan troupe at the Senator Theatre. About 60 Young Vic supporters gathered in the mezzanine before watching "Topsy Turvy," a movie about the composing duo. Many of them had performed in the 30-year-old company's productions years ago. Now, their kids are doing the same. Retired teachers Alex Armstrong, who had directed some of the early shows, and his wife, Louise, had some good stories to share.
