Carole Clay Shewbridge, a speech pathologist and early-childhood educator, died of ovarian cancer Saturday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The Monkton resident was 60.
Born in Baltimore and raised in Towson, she was a 1965 Towson High School graduate. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at St. Mary's College and had a master's in speech pathology from Loyola College.
She joined the Baltimore County Department of Education in 1970 and taught at the Rolling Road School until moving to Hawaii for a year in the mid-1980s.
From 1988 to 1990, she was a preschool teacher at the Rosedale Center and became a teacher of learning-disabled students.
When she retired last year, she was a team leader in the Southeastern Infants and Toddlers program.
She enjoyed trips to China and the Galapagos Islands, and snorkeling on coral reefs.
Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. May 25 at Trinity Episcopal Church, 120 Allegheny Ave. in Towson.
