Caroline A. Dann, a retired law firm administrator, died last Wednesday at Stella Maris Hospice of complications from vascular disease. The Timonium resident was 91.
The former Caroline Anne Jones, daughter of Somerset Orme Jones, a breeder of Hampton sheep, and his wife, Caroline Anne Lycett Jones, a homemaker, was born in Baltimore and raised on Abbottston Farm, her family’s Ellicott City farm.
She was a 1947 graduate of St. Catherine’s School in Richmond, Virginia, and the Bard Avon School, a Baltimore business and secretarial school. For about two decades, she was a secretary and court reporter to Howard County Circuit Court Judges James Clark and James Macgill, and was responsible for preparing trial transcripts for appellate purposes.
She was known throughout the Howard County courthouse as “Miss Anne,” family members said.
In 1967, she married Wallace Dann, an attorney, and later worked in his law office as an administrator of his law practice books and records.
In addition to her husband, she is survived by a stepson, Geoffrey Dann of Ventura, California; two stepdaughters, Katherine Roberts of Derby, Connecticut, and Pamela Butler of Virginia Beach, Virginia; two sisters, Matilda Jones of West Friendship and Carol Carlson of Ellicott City; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
