Margaret Louise Morgan, 84, of Bushwood, MD, and formerly of Leonardtown, MD where she resided with her daughter and son-in-law, Kathy and Bobby Guy, died April 9, 2011 in Calvert Memorial Hospital, Prince Frederick, MD surrounded by her loving family. Born on April 7, 1927 in Oakley, MD, she was the daughter of the late Joseph Ashby and Nellie Eleanor Farrell Quade. She was the loving wife of the late James Roy Morgan, Sr. whom she married on October 19, 1944 in Morganza, MD, and preceded her in death on September 3, 1988. Mrs. Morgan is survived by her children; Roy Morgan, Jr. (Barbara) of Clearwater, FL, Dennis Morgan (Sandy), Sandy Nelson (Donnie), and Stevie Morgan (Cindy) all of Mechanicsville, MD Gail White (Roger) of Abell, MD, Glenn Morgan of Bushwood, MD, Kathy Guy (Bobby) of Leonardtown, MD, Kevin Morgan of Chaptico, MD, eleven grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.

Margaret was a homemaker and a lifelong resident of St. Mary's County. She was a devoted wife to her beloved Roy for 44 years, loving mother, adored grandmother, treasured great grandmother, wonderful sister, and Aunt Margaret to many. Mrs. Morgan was a devout Catholic whose faith was evident in the way she lived her life. She was soft spoken, kindhearted, caring and gave generously of herself to those in need. She was an amazing cook and you could find her in the kitchen on Saturday afternoon preparing one of her many feasts. Family and friends would travel for miles just to eat the best fried chicken and homemade biscuits in southern Maryland, and there was always plenty for all. She loved playing bingo or sitting down to an all night game of pitch. In the quiet times, she prayed the rosary, sat on her front porch waving a friendly hello, and worked in her "Search a Word" books. But what made her the happiest in this world and gave her the greatest joy was to be surrounded by her children and the family she loved so much, she cherished their visits. Mrs. Morgan lived to have a little one cradled and cooing in her arms and to get lots of hugs and kisses from her many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She looked forward to the time spent with her sisters, brothers, nieces and nephews reminiscing about the "good ole days." Mrs. Morgan lived a long and good life. A golden heart has stopped beating. A beautiful soul will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by all who knew and loved her.

Marion Dunbar Sterling died peacefully in her home in Compton on Saturday, April 9, 2011. She was 93 years old. Born in Baltimore on the first day of spring in 1918, Marion May Dunbar Sterling was the youngest child of Lucy May Beal and Paul Waldron Dunbar. She spent her early years living in a row home in Baltimore where her father worked in the shipyards. When she was five years old, her family returned home to the First District in St. Mary's County, living on Timber Neck Farm in Dameron and later in St. Inigoes. She graduated from St. Michael's School in 1934. She was a Registered Nurse, graduating from Georgetown University School of Nursing in 1945. She worked at St. Mary's Hospital, Newton D. Baker Veteran's Hospital in Martinsburg, WV and the Patuxent River NAS Hospital. She served in the Naval Reserve during World War II. While in high school, she met a handsome young baseball player from Leonardtown who pursued her relentlessly until she finally agreed to marry him when he returned from Europe after World War II. On November 11, 1950, she married William O.E. Sterling, an attorney and later the first Judge of the St. Mary's County District Court. In 1952 they moved to Compton to the house she would call home for the rest of her life. She affectionately named it "Redbud Thicket," and spent the next 59 years there raising her family and tending her beautiful gardens. She also had a "winter home" in the Wildewood Retirement Village where she made many friends and enjoyed traveling with the group on their many local adventures. Her constant companion there was her Pembrooke Welsh Corgi, Bonnie Prince Charles of Redbud, better known as "Chuck." Her talents were endless. She was an incredible cook. She made the best crabcakes and fried chicken in the world, and her "Blonde Brownies" were a favorite among the Sterling clan. An avid gardener, she could grow anything, anywhere, anytime, and specialized in Black Eyed Susans and English Boxwood which she cultivated herself. She was a proud supporter of the gardens at Tudor Hall and on St. Clements Island. She loved St. Mary's County and its history and spent many days as a docent at Historic St. Mary's City sharing her knowledge of the rich history of the mother county with school children from across Maryland. She traveled the world in her later years, but always said that her favorite trip was to England with a group from the St. Mary's County Historical Society where they visited Maryland's origins. She was a member of St. Francis Xavier Church and helped stuff many a ham with the ladies for the Christmas bazaar. She was one of the founding members of the St. Mary's County Association for Retarded Citizens, now the ARC of Southern Maryland, and served on its Board of Directors for many years. Her love of local history was evidenced by her support of St. Mary's County Historical Society and many other local historical organizations. Nothing was more important to her, however, than her family. She joins her husband and two of her children, William O.E. Sterling, Jr., and Lucy Ann Sterling, in heaven. Also waiting for her there were her siblings, Alexander "Buster" Dunbar, Paul "Dilly" Dunbar, Mary Edna Dunbar, and her big sister and best friend, Lucie Ann Abell. She is survived by her two daughters, Christine Senese and Ruth Heinssen; her sons-in-law Gary and Bobby, and her daughter-in-law Judi Hewitt Sterling. She has nine grandchildren (Will, Tom, and Christina Sterling; Gary and Christopher Senese; Katherine and Michael Heinssen; and Scott Paul); and one great-grandchild, John Baylen Dean, who was the only one she ever let steal a bite of her crabmeat when she was picking crabs. Her family will welcome friends at St. Francis Xavier Church in Compton from 5 until 8 PM on Tuesday, April 12, with prayers at 7 PM. A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Wednesday, April 13 at 11 AM, with interment to follow at St. Aloysius Cemetery in Leonardtown. Fr. Brian Sanderfoot will officiate and Fr. John Mattingly will co-officiate. The family requests that memorial donations be made to the St. Mary's County Historical Society, P.O. Box 212, Leonardtown, MD 20650.
