Jane E. Latshaw-Moss, Hutzler's buyer

Jane Elizabeth Latshaw-Moss, a retired buyer for Hutzler Bros. and volunteer, died Oct. 1 of heart failure at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. She was 77.

She retired in 1980 from the department store, where she had been chief dress salon buyer. Her work required annual travel to London, Paris, New York and Milan, Italy, where she inspected and purchased the couture of the more notable fashion houses.

The former Jane Elizabeth Meyers, who was born and educated in Milwaukee, began her career modeling for Chicago's Marshall Field department store.

In 1940, she and Robert E. "Bob" Latshaw, a first baseman who was traded to the minor league Orioles in 1945, were married. They divorced in 1966. In 1970, she married Howard G. "Howitzer" Moss, a well-known slugger for the old International League Orioles who had retired in 1952. He died in 1989.

She had been active in the Red Cross and in scouting. She also taught Sunday school. Services were private.

She is survived by two sons, Robert E. Latshaw Jr. of Baltimore and J. Timothy Latshaw of Towson; a daughter, JoAnn Latshaw Robey of Timonium; a sister, Shirley Wrede of Pompano Beach, Fla; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

For two years before her retirement in 1980, Sister Mary taught French at Mount Providence Child Development Center in Baltimore.

A native of New Orleans, Sister Mary attended schools taught by the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament there and Xavier Preparatory School. She received her bachelor of arts degree in French from the College of Notre Dame of Maryland.

A liturgy of Christian burial will be at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow at Our Lady of Mount Providence Convent Chapel, 701 Gun Road in Baltimore.
