Mary Smith

June 15, 1924 — September 29, 2019


Mary Bernadine Bryan was born 6/15/24, to Mr. & Mrs. Thomas Bryan (Sarge) of Federal Hill. She grew up and went to parochial schools in the area. She was predeceased by her husband, John William (Bill) Smith, her sister M. Patricia Henley, and her nephew Christopher Henley. She is survived by her long-time friend, June Gleadall, her Godchildren, Brett Gleadall, Gigi Gleadall Rosenblatt, and Lindsey Gleadall Bohra, her close friends, Dee and Dave Gould, and her devoted friend and caregiver, Nathalie Robinson.

Mary worked at Loyola Federal S&L Assn. in the early 1950’s. She then purchased a joint ownership in the Joy-Ru Beauty Shop on Harford Road. She knew nothing about fixing hair (except her own), but she was a natural and soon earned her license. Mary and her husband, Bill, made many trips to the islands and were especially fond of Puerto Rico. Mary studied the Spanish language quite extensively. She later became a bookkeeper at Octavia’s Dress Salon in Cross Keys. While living in Loch Raven Village, she bought a tiny condo in Ocean City. Eventually, she moved to Arnold and shore property on Forest Drive. She was a resident of the Erickson community, Charlestown in Catonsville.
