Edward J. Todd, 92, juvenile probation supervisor

Edward Jerome Todd, a former juvenile probation supervisor and mentor to young people in Baltimore, died Friday in the North Cape Center in North Cape May, N.J. He was 92.

He retired from the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services in 1979, having worked as a probation officer and supervisor for more than 27 years. He also taught at the Cortez Peters Business School and taught vocational students at night.


Born in Petersburg, Va., he received a bachelor's degree in business administration from Virginia State University in 1938. He later took classes at the University of Maryland School of Law.

He married Mamie Bland in 1939. The couple lived in the Ashburton section of Baltimore. They summered in West Cape May, N.J., starting in 1970, then moved there in 1981.


He was a member of St. James Episcopal Church in Baltimore, where he was active in the men's group. As he enjoyed working with young people, he directed the young people's fellowship and was involved in other youth activities. He also was a member of Episcopal Church of the Advent in Cape May, where he had served as president of the men's club during the 1980s.

He was a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. He volunteered with Meals on Wheels in Cape May.

"He loved to go fishing. He loved family, friends and working with young people," said his wife.

In retirement, the couple enjoyed going on cruises. Mr. Todd also liked to read.

A Requiem Eucharist will be celebrated at noon Thursday at the Church of the Advent.

In addition to his wife of 66 years, survivors include a daughter, Ann Frederica Todd Jealous of Pacific Grove, Calif.; two grandchildren; and two great-granddaughters.
