Susan V. Blocher, 84, administrative assistant


Susan V. Blocher, a retired Edgewood Arsenal administrative assistant who belonged to Bel Air service organizations, died Monday of stroke complications at Mariner Health Care in Forest Hill. The Bel Air resident was 84.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Northwest Baltimore, Susan V. Hester was a 1937 graduate of Forest Park High School.

In 1941 she married Richard Owen Blocher, a Department of Defense employee. He died in 1983.

They resided in Baltimore until 1963, when they moved to Bel Air. Mrs. Blocher was an administrative assistant at the Edgewood Arsenal until her 1979 retirement.

She had been active in Job's Daughters, the Order of the Eastern Star and the Bel Air Lionesses.

Services were held Thursday at Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, where she was a member and belonged to the church's senior citizen club.

Survivors include two sons, Richard Blocher of Timonium and Bill Blocher of Bel Air; two daughters, Sue Ann Strobel of Joppa and Diane Slusher of Bel Air; and 11 grandchildren. Her 1993 marriage to Eugene Dague ended in divorce.
