Claire Tumulty Resident of Homeland


A Mass of Christian burial for Claire Tumulty, who lived in Homeland for many years, will be offered at 10 a.m. tomorrow at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 5200 N. Charles St.

Mrs. Tumulty, who was 72 and lived on St. Albans Way, died yesterday of cancer at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

The former Claire Cotter was a native of Washington and was educated at the Convent of the Sacred Heart there and at Manhattanville College in Purchase, N.Y.

Her husband, Dr. Philip A. Tumulty, professor emeritus of internal medicine at the Johns Hopkins medical school, died in 1989.

She is survived by four daughters, Claire Brown of Norwich, Vt., Kate Bell of Monkton, Mary Gill of Timonium and Alicia Connor of Baltimore; a sister, Dorothy Cotter of Washington; and 12 grandchildren.

The family suggested that memorial contributions be made to the Little Sisters of the Poor.
