Brunch is on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. You can also get delivery or food to take away, too.

It is with deep sadness that I share news about the passing of two well-known and loved Elkridge residents.

John “Jack” Snodgrass Jr. died after suffering a major stroke in June. He leaves behind his wife, Kayleigh, sons John III, known as Sonny, and Paul, and siblings Jeanne, Mary, Joseph and James. Memorial gifts may be made in Jack’s name to St. Benedict’s Catholic Church at 2612 Wilkens Ave., Baltimore, MD 21223 or the Elkridge Volunteer Fire Department. Jack grew up in Elkridge and attended St. Augustine School and Cardinal Gibbons High School. He was thoughtful, kind, funny and helpful to his family and many friends. He will be greatly missed.

Patricia “Pat” Baran Pool died in July following a lengthy and courageous battle with breast cancer. She is survived by her loving husband, Ronnie, and children Marla and Craig and their families. Her granddaughter, Emily, brought such joy to her life.

She also leaves behind her sister, Barbara and many other dear relatives and friends. Pat’s brother, Joey, died earlier this year. Pat was an award-winning quilter who taught many local women to make beautiful quilts. She was very proud of her Polish heritage and was a presenter at the Elkridge Historical Society’s Little Poland night earlier this year. She was gracious and informative even though she was undergoing chemotherapy and fighting for her life at that time. Pat was a vibrant, joyful person who is missed by all of us who were fortunate to call her a friend.
