Margaret B. Tyler, a former Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. customer service representative, died Aug. 5 from complications of dementia at Cadia Rehabilitation in Millsboro, Del. She was 96.
The former Margaret Beulah Knochel was born in Baltimore and raised in Highlandtown. She was a 1933 graduate of Eastern High School where she excelled in French, fencing and archery.
She was married in 1939 to Oliver T. Tyler, an aeronautical engineer, who later became an executive with the old Glenn L. Martin Co. and the Boeing Co. He died in 1984.
Mrs. Tyler was a customer service representative for BGE from 1946 to 1971, until moving to Princess Anne. When she settled in Somerset County, she worked for several years for the Maintaining Active Citizens program.
Mrs. Tyler had a deep appreciation for historic homes and Colonial culture and volunteered for more than two decades at the Teackle Mansion in Princess Anne, which had been built between 1802-1819 for Littleton Dennis Teackle.
