A Mass of Christian burial for Mrs. Irr, who lived in Homeland for many years, will be offered at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen, 5200 N. Charles St.

Her husband, Henry P. Irr, first president of Baltimore Federal Savings and Loan Association, which later became Baltimore Federal Financial, died in 1981.

The former Katharine Reilly was a graduate of Mount St. Agnes High School and what is now Towson State University.
