Nancy Harker, 73, a retired teacher


Nancy McDonough Harker, a retired Baltimore County teacher, died Dec. 17 of cancer at her home in Ocean Pines. She was 73.

Memorial services were being held today at the Burgee-Henss funeral establishment, 3631 Falls Road, and at 11 a.m. tomorrow at St. Paul's-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Ocean City.

Mrs. Harker moved to the Ocean City area after her retirement about six years ago. She taught in Baltimore County schools for about 11 years and earlier for about four years at St. Thomas More School.

Her husband of 30 years, George Corcoran Harker, a civil engineer, died in 1969.

The former Nancy McDonough was a native of Chicago who was reared in Iron River, Mich.

After moving to Ocean Pines, she was a substitute teacher in Ocean City and elsewhere in Worcester County. She also had been a volunteer guide at the Science Center in Baltimore and at the Salisbury Zoo.

She had been active in several organizations in the Ocean City area.

She is survived by two daughters, Catherine Harker Addoms of Denver and Sara Jane Harker of Ocean Pines; three sons, George Corcoran Harker Jr. of Vallejo, Calif., Steven M. Harker of West Ocean City and Peter R. Harker of Ocean Pines; a sister, Sally McDonough Tager of North Hampton, N.H.; a brother, Mark McDonough of Iron River; seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.

The family suggested that memorial contributions could be made to the Coastal Hospice in Salisbury.
