Barbara L. Daue, Towson jewelry designer, dies at 59

Barbara L. Daue, a homemaker and jewelry designer, died Feb. 19 of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, at Gilchrist Hospice Care in Towson. She was 59.

The daughter of James C. Jones, who was the owner of the George W. King Printing Co., and Nancy Horner Jones, a homemaker, Barbara Lynn Jones was born in Baltimore and raised in Lutherville.

After graduating in 1973 from Dulaney Valley High School, she earned a bachelor's degree in 1977 from Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, Va.

After college, Mrs. Daue worked in sales at H.C. Garthe, a Cross Keys jewelry store, and later at a women's clothing store.

Mrs. Daue, who was known as Lynn, enjoyed designing jewelry, flowers and decorating.

"They were her passions," said Janice Daue Walker, a sister-in-law, of Marblehead, Mass. "Throughout her life, Lynn was fun-loving, creative, gracious, and had a wonderful sense of humor. Her smile lit up a room."

Mrs. Daue enjoyed the beach and especially liked visiting Bethany Beach, Del., and Vero Beach, Fla., said Ms. Walker.

The longtime Towson resident was a former member of the Baltimore Country Club and a member of the Quail Valley Golf Club in Vero Beach, where she liked playing tennis and bowling.

A memorial Mass will be offered at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ Roman Catholic Church, 20 E. Ridgeley Road, Timonium.

Mrs. Daue is survived by her husband of 30 years, John Daue, executive vice president of Winner Distributing Co.; a son, James Daue of Towson; a daughter, Jocelyn Daue Maguire of Baltimore; a sister, Kathy Page of Annapolis; and several nieces and nephews.
