Charles F. Flamand, 71, construction sales manager

Charles F. Flamand, a retired sales manager, died of a stroke Tuesday at Kuakini Medical Center in Honolulu while vacationing in Hawaii. He was 71.

Before his retirement five years ago, Mr. Flamand worked for 30 years as an eastern district manager for Milwaukee-based Rex Works Corp., a construction equipment company.

He and his wife of 45 years, the former Ann Sheehan, moved to the Charlestown Retirement Community in Catonsville three months ago after living in Severna Park for 27 years.

The Cambridge, Mass., native received an engineering degree from Washington University in St. Louis in 1951. He served as a corporal in the Army Air Corps in the Pacific during World War II.

Until recently, he was a member of the Chesapeake Curling Club, competing in senior men's national curling competitions.

A Mass of Christian burial was to be offered at 10 a.m. today at St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church, Ritchie Highway and Cypress Creek Road in Severna Park.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by three sons, Charles "Rick" Flamand Jr. of Chevy Chase, Mark Flamand of West Chester, Pa., and Douglas A. Flamand of Olney; a daughter, Carol Ann Roloson of Chester; and 10 grandchildren.

Emily Marion Brown, a homemaker and longtime volunteer, died Friday of ovarian cancer at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care in Baltimore. She was 87.

The Cumberland native graduated from St. Mary's Female Seminary in St. Mary's City, now St. Mary's College, and then from the Women's Hospital of Maryland nursing school in Baltimore. She worked as a registered nurse until she left to raise a family.

The former Emily Carscaden married James R. Brown Jr. in 1932. She and her husband had lived in Baltimore's Oakenshawe neighborhood since 1933.
