William M. Metcalf

Security officer

Services for William M. Metcalf, security officer at the Harbor Hospital Center, will be held at 11 a.m. today at the Howard H. Hubbard Funeral Home, 4107 Wilkens Ave.

Mr. Metcalf, who was 64 and lived on Rockhill Avenue in the Violetville area, died Sunday at the hospital of complications due to cancer.

Known as "Pete," he was an investigator for the hospital for about five years after seven years as an investigator for the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau.

He worked for the federal government for 20 years before that, briefly for the Internal Revenue Service, then as a Treasury agent.

He worked undercover for the Treasury Department. For work done on loan to the Justice Department, he received a citation presented by Robert F. Kennedy, then the attorney general.

The Baltimore native was a graduate of Southern High School, held an associate's degree from the University of Baltimore and graduated from the FBI Academy.

During World War II, he was an instructor for sonar operators in the Navy.

Mr. Metcalf is survived by his wife, the former Annebel R. Madera; a brother, the Rev. Leslie G. Metcalf of Baltimore; and six sisters, Norma Hulsey and Gladys Sturgeon, both of Baltimore, Virginia Brushweiler and Nancy Cusic, both of Arbutus, Helen March of Saunderstown, R.I., and Shirley Pfister of Laurel.

Sister Mary Anna

Teacher, principal

A Mass of Christian burial for Sister Mary Anna Queen, R.S.M., who had been principal of the Mount Washington Country School for Boys in the 1950s, will be offered at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow in the chapel of Mercy Villa, 6806 Bellona Ave.

Sister Mary Anna, who was 77 and lived at Mercy Villa, died Tuesday of an intestinal infection at Mercy Medical Center.

She retired about two years ago after four years as a teacher at Mercy High School. Earlier, she taught at many Baltimore-area elementary schools, including St. Peter's, Immaculate Heart of Mary, St. Bernard's and St. Cecilia's.

In the mid-1950s, when she became principal, Mount Washington Country School for Boys was on the Mount Washington campus of Mount St. Agnes College and High School. She oversaw the construction of the new school and served as its principal until 1964. The former Rosalie Queen was born in Baltimore and graduated from Mount St. Agnes High School and the College of Notre Dame.

She entered the Sisters of Mercy of the Union in the United States of America in 1938.

She is survived by a sister, Ann McNamara of Baltimore; a brother, Dr. J. Emmett Queen of Baltimore; and several nieces and nephews.
