Alice E. Wayson Bank teller, singer


Services for Alice E. Wayson, a former bank employee and singer, will be held at 11:30 a.m. today at the Singleton Funeral Home at 1 Second Ave. S.W., in Glen Burnie.

Mrs. Wayson, who was 69, died Jan. 24 of cancer at a hospital in Punta Gorda, Fla., where she had lived for eight years.

A native of Baltimore who was reared in Ferndale and graduated from Glen Burnie High School, the former Alice E. Ruark sang as a young woman on radio programs with Garry Moore. She also sang with the Woody Herman band during a Baltimore engagement.

During the 1950s and 1960s, she was a teller for the Country Trust Co.

She had lived in Annapolis, Bowie and Pasadena before she and her husband, Harold B. Wayson, moved to Ketchikan, Alaska, about 10 years ago. They moved to Florida in 1983.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a daughter, Nancy A. Aversa of Towson, and two grandchildren.

The family suggested contributions to the National Humane Education Society in Leesburg, Va., or to the American Cancer Society.
