Former fashion model

Elizabeth Ann Goldsmith, a former fashion model, died Sunday of pneumonia at Union Memorial Hospital. She was 67 and lived in the Forty-Three Hundred North Charles Apartments in Baltimore.

The former Elizabeth Ann Galbraith was a native of Pittsburgh who was reared in several Eastern cities and was a graduate of Chevy Chase Junior College and of the Hattie Carnegie School of Design in New York City.

In New York, she worked for the fashion design firm of Hattie Carnegie Inc. and as a fashion model.

She moved to Baltimore after her marriage in 1950 to Robert Henry Goldsmith, who was president of Fiske Caterers before his death in 1986.

She was a member of the Baltimore Country Club, the Woman's Club of Roland Park and the English Speaking Union.

She held a private pilot's license and flew airplanes as a young woman.

A memorial service for Mrs. Goldsmith was to be conducted at 11 a.m. today at St. David's Episcopal Church, Roland Avenue and Oakdale Road in Baltimore.

She is survived by a son, R. Blake Goldsmith of Baltimore; three daughters, Kim McCain and Elizabeth Foster, both of Towson, and Tina Thompson of Baltimore; and eight grandchildren.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the Adult Immunization Fund, Box 151, 22 S. Greene St., Baltimore 21201. The fund provides immunizations against pneumonia for elderly people who cannot afford them. Amelia Marie Davis, who had been associated with Hess Shoes from the age of 14 to the age of 83, died Sunday of cardiac arrest after collapsing at her home in the Hampton Plaza Apartments.

Mrs. Davis would have been 84 next month.

She retired last year after having continued to work part time for nearly 15 years at the Hess store in Towson Town Center, where she had been the first manager of the women's shoe department.

The former Amelia Marie Gracey was a native of Baltimore who started working as a wrapper at Hess' Baltimore Street store in downtown Baltimore. She was trained in sales, buying and management by a member of the Hess family.

"Miss Amelia," as she was known to her regular customers, also worked at the Howard Street store and, at various times, was a buyer, employee trainer and new store consultant.

She was a member of the Burk-Lin Ridge Garden Club and the Variety Club.

She was the widow of the late Henry Steele Davis.
