Rose Marie Tayman, age 79, of Mechanicsville, MD, passed away on Saturday, April 19, 2014

 

Marie was born at home on a small farm in Dunkirk, MD on July 20, 1934 to John and Eva Brady.  She was the youngest of three children and the only daughter.  Marie spent her early childhood in Dunkirk before the family moved to Washington, DC.  She graduated from Notre Dame High School.

 

In the summer of 1953, Marie was introduced to Joseph F. Tayman, Sr., by his sister, Nellie (Tayman) Kalivertenos.  They were wed on May 15, 1954 and would have celebrated their 60th anniversary this year.  Shortly after their marriage, the Army drafted Joe where he served two years.

While Joe was deployed, Marie lived in Lothian, MD and worked for the federal government.  Upon his return from the Army in 1956, Marie and Joe moved to Wayson’s Corner, MD.  In 1958, the first of their three children was born.  Marie continued to work for the government until after the birth of their second child in 1961.

 In 1968, Marie and Joseph moved to Oxon Hill, MD where they resided for 20 years during which time their third child was born in 1975.  Marie worked in the banking industry for over ten years. She was one of the first women in the state of Maryland to become both a bank manager and to serve as a bank officer.  In 1988, the family relocated to St. Mary’s County, MD.  Marie continued to work, usually in management positions, until she retired three years ago.

 Marie’s top priority was always her family and she received tremendous satisfaction in knowing that she was a much loved and terrific mother and grandmother.  She was a warm, loving, kind, and compassionate woman, which made others feel at ease. Marie’s children considered her their best friend and closest confidante.

PostHeaderIcon Patricia Jo Grierson of Dunkirk, MD, May 2, 1929 – April 20, 2014

PATRICIA JO GRIERSON

Age 84

Patricia Jo Grierson, was born on May 2, 1929. She grew up in Washington, DC.  On May 8, 1948, she marriedErnest Leroy Grierson.  They were married for 33 years until he passed away in 1981.

Pat was a stay at home mom for a few years but times were lean in those days so she made the decision to go to work to help support the family.  First, on a part-time basis, she worked weekends at the beach during the summer.  This was a time when women were rare in the workforce but she found a full time job at Acacia Life Insurance Company where she worked her way from a file clerk in the data processing department to a computer systems analyst over her 40 year career there. This required a great deal of night time studying in addition to her full time day job and she still found the time for her family on weekends, making sure her daughters were kept busy, including a period of several years when they both were involved in the majorettes. She made sure they never missed a practice, parade or competition and she was there to see it all.  Pat was a role model to her daughters, proving thata woman could be successful both as a mother and in a career.

Pat always enjoyed being with family — from the many Sundays at the beach having family picnics to the many holidays and birthdays that included lots of extended family and revolved around a wonderful meal and lots of stories and laughter – to the later years where she was able to enjoy watching her four grandchildren grow up and much later to see five great grandchildren be born.

After she retired, Pat traveled with her friends to every State in the United States.  She loved to travel and was able to do so until the last couple of years of her life. 

When travel was not in her plans, she joined a small group at church and enjoyed fellowship with her dear friends.She also found time to volunteer, giving many hours to the Calvert Hospital Auxiliary, Meals on Wheels, Women’s Democratic Club and Prince George’s County State’s Attorney’s Office.

She came to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ when she was sixteen years old and was baptized at that time.  After being away from the church for many years, she returned and recommitted her life to being a better Christian.  She loved the Lord and during her illness, she anxiously awaited the time she would meet Jesus in glory.

As her light goes out, she will be dearly missed by those who love her.

Patricia is survived by her children; Patricia (James) Gillette and Mary Askland, Grandchildren; James (Rachel) Gillette, Heather Hardesty, Christopher (Lindsay) Askland and Gregory Askland, Great Grandchildren; Colin, Dean, Samantha, Bryce and Aren, sisters; Vivian Wehlander, Mary Lynne Shurey and Cheri Coulter. And many nieces, nephews and other loving family.

Memorial contributions may be made to Calvert Hospice, P O Box 838, Prince Frederick, MD 20678.
