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 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.

Brian Sanderfoot officiating. Interment will follow in St. Aloysius Cemetery, Leonardtown, MD. The family will receive friends on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 from 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM in St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, Compton, MD where prayers will be recited at 7:00 PM. 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.

Alan Kimmel Paskow, 71

Passed On: 04/05/2011

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.Alan Paskow, 71, who taught philosophy at St. Mary's College of Maryland for a quarter century, died peacefully in his home in Ridge, Maryland, of metastatic head and neck cancer. He is survived by his wife, Jacqueline, a professor emerita of foreign languages and culture who also taught for 25 years at St Mary's College, and his daughter, Linnea, 35, a professor at Pratt Institute of Art in Brooklyn.

Paskow was known for his passion for philosophy. He practiced a kind of philosophy that gives substantial credit to first-person experience, inner consciousness, and mixed emotions, including angst, facing one's own death, the confusion of moral weakness, and self-deception. Among his articles are "The Meaning of My Own Death," "Towards a Theory of Self-Deception," "Moral Denial, Moral Weakness, and the Complicity of the Self," and "What is Aesthetic Catharsis?" In 2004, he published The Paradoxes of Art: A Phenomenological Investigation (Cambridge University Press), in which he demonstrated why art -- especially painting - matters, and how it makes a difference in our lives. The book was critically reviewed at a panel at the American Philosophical Association.

Paskow graduated from Haverford College and received his MA in philosophy at Northwestern University, before transferring to Yale to obtain a Ph.D. in philosophy. His first position was as a Danforth Fellow at Antioch College, Ohio, followed by a tenure-track position at the University of Vermont, where he got involved in college politics. It was the era of the Vietnam War. Paskow and his colleagues demanded that the department and university be run more democratically, with the result that a newly appointed chair recommended that Paskow and four of his colleagues not be rehired.

Paskow went on to accept a position at Prescott College in Arizona, where he and his wife taught for one semester before the institution went bankrupt. When about 60 students refused to leave, the Paskows -- with a few other faculty members -- stayed on and held classes in their living rooms while collecting unemployment for two years. Paskow helped to reconstitute a board of trustees and a newly named Prescott College for Alternative Education. A new teaching opportunity arose at Deep Springs College in the desert of California, where he and his wife taught and lived in a community with students and faculty on a self-managed cattle ranch and farm. Soon after, Paskow accepted a full-time position at St. Mary's College of Maryland. At St. Mary's, he and his colleagues persuaded their fellow faculty members to constitute both a department and majors in the fields of philosophy and religious studies. He retired in 2005.

He is remembered by his family, friends, and colleagues as a person of great integrity. Diagnosed with cancer in 2008 and aware of his life-threatening illness, he continued to engage deep questions about the meaning of life in a circle of friends, with an openness admired by all.

A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
