The Baltimore native was a graduate of Western High School and what is now Towson State University. She studied social work at Simmons College in Boston.

Her husband, Dr. Arthur C. Kalisch, died in 1947.

She is survived by a son, Arthur C. Kalisch Jr. of Pikesville; a stepbrother, Leon Prissman of Silver Spring; and a grandson.

The Baltimore native was a graduate of the Polytechnic Institute.

He was a member of the Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick, the Clifton Pleasure Club and the Towson Lodge of the Elks.

A member of the Elks golf team, he played at local public courses, often with his wife.

Deaths elsewhere

Richard Walker Bolling, 74, a Democrat who represented Missouri in Congress for 17 terms, died of an apparent heart attack Sunday at his Washington home. From 1978 until his retirement in 1982, he was chairman of the House Rules Committee, which decides which legislation will be debated on the House floor and how it can be amended. After retiring from Congress, he was a visiting professor of political science at the University of Missouri in Kansas City and a professor of politics rTC at Boston College in Massachusetts. He was born in New York and grew up in Huntsville, Ala. He was a Phi Beta Kappa student of English and classical French literature at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tenn., and had been named to Sports Illustrated's 25th anniversary All-American football team.

Sean O'Faolain, 91, whose beautifully crafted short stories won him a reputation as the "Irish Chekhov," died Saturday in Dublin. Mr. O'Faolain wrote more than 20 books during a career that spanned almost 60 years and was working on an autobiography at the time of his death. His works included "Midsummer Night Madness" and "King of the Beggars, a Biography," as well as several volumes of collected short stories.

Steve Marriott, 44, the gravelly voiced lead singer of the English rock groups Small Faces and Humble Pie, died in his home Saturday in a fire apparently started accidentally by a cigarette. The fire began in the bedroom of Mr. Marriott's 16th-century cottage near Saffron Walden, 44 miles northeast of London. He had returned home Friday from the United States, where he was working with former pop star Peter Frampton, also a one-time member of Humble Pie. Mr. Marriott was enjoying new popularity with a revival of interest in "mod music," the style that lifted Small Faces to the 1965 hit parade with "Whatcha Gonna Do About It." That hit was followed by "Hey Girl," "All or Nothing," "Itchykoo Park" and "Tin Soldier." The mod style, based as much on fashion as music, contrasted with the rougher, blues-based rock and roll of groups like the Rolling Stones.

Cardinal Emmanuel Kiwanuka Nsubuga, 77, a former head of the Roman Catholic Church in Uganda and an opponent of human rights abuses under Idi Amin Dada's rule, died Saturday of blood and bone cancer in a hospital in Cologne, Germany. He was ordained in 1947 and became the East African nation's sole cardinal in 1976. He retired in April 1990. During Mr. Amin's nine-year dictatorial rule, Cardinal Nsubuga spoke fearlessly against the government's human rights abuses. Mr. Amin was overthrown in 1979 by Tanzanian troops and Ugandan exiles.
