CAM­BRIDGE — Marie Irene Dud­ley, 89, of Cam­bridge, passed away on Mon­day, July 25, 2016, at Mal­lard Bay Care Cen­ter, Cam­bridge, with her daugh­ter by her side.

Born on Dec. 13, 1926, in Hol­lis­ter, N.C., she was a daugh­ter of the late Florence Rentz Green­well and Lee Green­well.

She was a life­time mem­ber of St. Pauls United Methodist Church where she en­joyed lead­ing de­vo­tions in the Miz­pah Bi­ble Class. She was also a mem­ber of the Glean­ers Club. Marie had a strong faith and love for the Lord.

She worked as a cook for 40+ years in many restau­rants in the Cam­bridge area, in­clud­ing Shoals, High Spot and the Point. In later years, her fa­vorite place to eat was McDon­alds. She loved her cheese­burger with ketchup, small coke and an ap­ple pie. Her fa­vorite T.V. show was the Andy Grif­fith show.

Marie loved the out­doors and was known to have a “green thumb”. She loved work­ing in her flower beds and her fa­vorite color of flow­ers was red and least fa­vorite was yel­low. She was a so­cial but­ter­fly with a con­ta­gious laugh. Marie loved peo­ple and if any­one needed any­thing she was al­ways there to lend a help­ing hand. When end­ing a con­ver­sa­tion Marie would al­ways say, “I love you”.

The fam­ily would like to thank the staff at Mal­lard Bay Care Cen­ter for the great care given to Marie. She loved them and in re­turn they loved her.

Sur­viv­ing her is a daugh­ter, Sheila Brit­ting­ham and hus­band Wayne of East New Mar­ket; grand­chil­dren: Tif­fany Brit­ting­ham Hance (Shawn) and Carly Brit­ting­ham (Jen­nifer); great grand­chil­dren: Baileigh, Bray­den and Brook­lyn Brit­ting­ham; a sis­ter Han­nah Law­son of Vi­enna; sev­eral nieces and neph­ews.

Pre­ced­ing her in death, be­sides her par­ents, was a sis­ter, Dorothy Lar­ri­more.

A Cel­e­bra­tion of Life Ser­vice was held on Satur­day, July 30, at New­comb and Collins Funeral Home, P.A., 308 High St., Cam­bridge, MD, with Rev. Ran­dall Black­mon and Rev. Lavonne Chester-Gray of­fi­ci­at­ing.

In lieu of flow­ers, me­mo­rial con­tri­bu­tions in Marie’s name can be sent to Mal­lard Bay Care Cen­ter Ac­tiv­i­ties Depart­ment, c/o Heather Rob­bins, 520 Glen­burn Ave., Cam­bridge, MD 21613.
