"She was always the caregiver to her mother and brothers," said her daughter, Joanna Miskelly Cox of Baltimore. "There was always an extra seat at the table for any unannounced guest who rang her doorbell."

Mrs. Miskelly joined the sales staff of the old Stewart & Co. department store on York Road in the 1960s. She worked in yard goods and sewing and in the china and silver departments before the store closed more than 30 years ago.

In addition to her daughter, survivors include a son, J. Kevin Miskelly of Armagh Village; and another daughter, E. Jane Loving of Towson. Her husband of nearly 45 years, John A. Miskelly, a safety engineer for National Beer and Sheppard Pratt Hospital, died in 1986.
