Services for Lucy Iglehart Howard, an accomplished horsewoman and tennis player who was the widow of a prominent Baltimore physician, will be held at noon tomorrow at St. Thomas's Episcopal Church, St. Thomas Lane and Garrison Forest Road.

Mrs. Howard died Wednesday after a stroke at her Green Spring Valley home, Waverly. She was 82.

The former Lucy James Iglehart was born in Baltimore and

educated at the Garrison Forest School. She married Dr. John Eager Howard in 1927. Dr. Howard, professor emeritus of medicine at the Johns Hopkins Medical School, died in 1985.

Both she and her husband were active tennis players. She played in many interclub tournaments as a young woman and continued to play until she was in her 70s. She also enjoyed other sports, making annual trips with her husband to go salmon fishing in Canada.

A horsewoman since childhood, she had been a fox hunter and won prizes in horse shows riding her mare, Sultana. She owned horses that ran in both flat and jumping races, including High Julep, Atos, Victory Edition and Skaneatles.

Mrs. Howard was a member of the Green Spring Valley Hunt Club, the Mount Vernon Club, the Baltimore Assembly and the Hillsboro Club in Pompano Beach, Fla.

She is survived by a son, William James Howard of Garrison; a daughter, Lucy Anne Calhoun Howard of New York City; two sisters, Angelica Peale Allan of Garrison and Elizabeth Graham Dun Blair of Lake Bluff, Ill.; a brother, Francis N. Iglehart of Monkton; and four grandchildren.
