Anne M. Bond, a former supervisor in the state Department of Social Services who was interested in history and politics, died Saturday of heart failure at Mercy Medical Center. She was 89.
The daughter of James Morrow, an accountant, and Ethel Wessels Morrow, an elementary educator, Anne Morrow was born in Buffalo, N.Y., and spent her early years in East Aurora, N.Y.
In 1933, she moved to Baltimore with her family and graduated in 1943 from Eastern High School. She earned a bachelor's degree in international relations in 1947 from Goucher College.
She was married in 1949 to Edwin L. Bond, a chemist and professional photographer. They settled on Woodlawn Road in Roland Park. He died in 1990.
Mrs. Bond was a supervisor for many years in the state Department of Social Services. She retired in 1995.
Mrs. Bond left her Roland Park home of more than 50 years and moved in 2005 to Mercy Ridge Retirement Community in Timonium. After falling and breaking her hip, she moved to Stella Maris.
She enjoyed gardening and was a student of history and politics.
"She had been a child of the Depression, and she took a great interest in World War II, especially Pearl Harbor," said her granddaughter, Laura A. Bond of Mount Washington. "She also had a brother who had served in Gen. George S. Patton Jr.'s 3rd Army."
Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday at the Mitchell-Wiedefeld Funeral Home, 6500 York Road, Rodgers Forge.
In addition to her granddaughter, Mrs. Bond is survived by two sons, E. Bond of Frederick and Eugene L. Bond of Niceville, Fla.; a daughter, Polly M. Bond of Baltimore; a sister, Louise Morrow Olson of Catonsville; and two grandsons. Another daughter, Jennifer L. Bond, died in 1991.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
