Dale Edwin Lloyd

Landscape architect

Dale Edwin Lloyd, a landscape architect whose design expertise was applied to many health and educational institutions, died June 8 of congestive heart failure at his Towson residence. He was 78.

Mr. Lloyd retired in 1987 from Lloyd-Smith Associates, which he established with Richard Smith in 1958. After his retirement, the firm was dissolved and his interest sold to Mr. Smith.

Mr. Lloyd moved to Baltimore in 1953 from Cincinnati, where he was a city planner, and went to work for the old Baltimore County Department of Education and Recreation. He designed site plans and recreational facilities until opening his business.

Some of the major projects he helped design include Good Samaritan Hospital, Towson State University, South Baltimore General Hospital, Essex Community College, Catonsville Community College and the Hyman Blumberg Child Center.

"His father was an architect, and that was a great influence on him," said his college sweetheart and wife of 52 years, the former Adelaide Krone.

"He was very conscious of the impact of the environment and how it affected people and always tried to be aware of that in his designs. He always tried to make his work pleasing to both adults and children."

Born and raised in Dayton, Ohio, he was a graduate of schools there and earned his bachelor's degree in landscape architecture in 1941 from the University of Cincinnati.

Drafted during World War II, he served with the Army Corps of Engineers, developing landing strips in Okinawa and Guam. He was discharged in 1946 with the rank of captain. He was recalled during the Korean conflict and served in Korea from 1950 to 1952, when he was discharged a second time.

Mr. Lloyd enjoyed fishing in Michigan and Canada and traveling in Europe.

He was a member of the Towson Rotary, the Kilwinning Masonic Lodge and the American Association of Landscape Architects. He was also active in the Towson YMCA and the Loch Raven United Methodist Church, where he helped plan and design the church and landscaping.

Services are to be held at 10 a.m. today at Loch Raven United Methodist Church, 6622 Loch Raven Blvd.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by a son, Steven E. Lloyd of Towson; a daughter, Rev. Sharon L. Grindon of Middlebury, Vt.; and two grandchildren.

James Joseph Lewis, a retired plant manager and former White Marsh resident, died June 5 of cancer at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital in Somerset, Ky. He was 71.

Mr. Lewis was vice president and plant manager of Raymond Metal Products Co. on North Point Boulevard from 1963 to 1971, when he left the company.

He later managed Electroloy Co. plants in Hatfield, Pa., and in Hemingway, S.C., where he was vice president before retiring in 1976 and moving to Somerset, Ky., where he operated a Peanut Shack franchise in a local mall until retiring a second time in 1992.

A native of Charleroi, Pa., where he was a graduate of local schools, he served in the Army until 1943 when he was discharged with the rank of technician 5th grade.

A memorial service was to be held at 10 a.m. today at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, 8420 Belair Road, Fullerton.

His 1945 marriage to the former Katherine Christis of VTC Johnsonville, S.C., ended in divorce in 1973. Other survivors include three sons, James J. Lewis Jr. of Myrtle Beach, S.C., Ralph I. Lewis of Perkasie, Pa., and Kenneth Lewis of Philadelphia; a daughter, K. Ellen Pettebone of Bel Air; a sister, Patricia Schwartz of Midway, Pa.; seven grandchildren; and a great-grandchild.

Lillian Marie Henschen, a lifelong Baltimorean who devoted her life to her family, died Thursday at Good Samaritan Hospital from complications of a broken hip. She was 86.

Mrs. Henschen was born Lillian M. Dorer in 1908. She grew up in South Baltimore in a family of eight children.

After raising a son and daughter, she enjoyed spending time with her six grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren and attending birthday parties and Christmas gatherings.

When she was younger, Mrs. Henschen bowled in the Third Lutheran Church league. Until recently, she enjoyed walks around the Parkville Senior High School track with her husband, Robert.
