Traci Elaine Mar­quardt

Traci Elaine Mar­quardt, 46, of Manas­sas VA passed away May 21, 2016 peace­fully af­ter a brief un­ex­pected battle with can­cer.

Traci is sur­vived by her mother, Mar­garet L. (Peggy) Bowl­ing of Wal­dorf MD; her lov­ing hus­band and best friend, Chris­tian Mar­quardt; and the joys of her life, her two daugh­ters, Lind­say and Hannah Mar­quardt; Sis­ters: Donna (Larry) Spitzer Paw­leys Is­land SC, Julie (Wade) Stall­smith Char­lotte Hall MD, Sherry Rahm Me­chan­icsville MD, Cindy (Steve) Kan­ode Hern­don VA, and Bob­bie (Wil­lie) Simp­son White Plains, MD; 9 nieces and neph­ews; and many friends.

Traci was born in LaPlata MD and grew up in Charles County MD. She moved to North­ern Vir­ginia af­ter school and con­tin­ued her ed­u­ca­tion while work­ing many years at North­west­ern Mu­tual in Mclean VA.

Traci was known for her witty, bright, gen­er­ous, play­ful per­son­al­ity, and ex­pres­sive eyes and fa­cial ex­pres­sions that showed like her car­ing heart that she “wore on her sleeve”. She loved to travel ex­ten­sively with her hus­band and girls all over Europe; was an avid reader, cook, and foodie; loved an­tique and thrift store ven­tures with her girls; was a sup­port­ive, en­thu­si­as­tic “soc­cer/sports mom”, Girl Scout Leader, and was very proud of her daugh­ters and their ac­com­plish­ments. She loved spend­ing time on the wa­ter in the North­ern Neck of VA, and that in­cluded bring­ing her beloved furry friends back and forth with them. She will be sorely missed by fam­ily and friends.

A pri­vate funeral was held May 27 in Manas­sas VA, and a Cel­e­bra­tion of Life for fam­ily and friends will be held June 4. Thomas Wal­ter Jones

Rafaela Cor­rea Bolling

Rafaela Cor­rea Bolling of Wal­dorf, MD, passed away peace­fully on Mon­day, May 30, 2016 at her home. She was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico on July 5, 1917 to the late Vi­cente Adalid Cor­rea-Car­mona and the late Juana Cin­tron-Cor­rea. She at­tended school in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Along with her par­ents, she was pre­ceded in death by her hus­band of 53 years, Oswald Lau­ritz Bolling; her sis­ters, Car­men Cor­rea-Ge­orge, Mar­garita Fe­bres and Daniela Cor­rea-Wil­liams; her brothers, Vi­cente (Tito) Cor­rea Jr., Guil­ermo Fe­bres, Guango Cor­rea, and Cheo Cor­rea.

She is sur­vived by her daugh­ter, Car­men R. Quinones; sonin-law, Pe­dro J. Quinones-Tavarez (both of Wal­dorf); her sis­ters, Maria Emilia (Mary) Cor­rea-Fluhr of Wilm­ing­ton, DE, and Glo­ria Esther Cor­rea-Pil­lot of Baya­mon, Puerto Rico; and many nieces and neph­ews.

Rafaela en­joyed sewing and was a seam­stress for all her work­ing life, tak­ing great de­light in mak­ing coats, draperies, and es­pe­cially de­sign­ing and mak­ing her daugh­ter’s wed­ding dress, reading about the his­tory of Puerto Rico, and dec­o­rat­ing her home. She loved re­mem­ber­ing about life as it was when she was grow­ing up in Puerto Rico. She also en­joyed watch­ing soap op­eras and va­ri­ety pro­grams on Span­ish tele­vi­sion. She also had a soft spot in her heart for dogs and cats and had al­ways been sur­rounded by them.

She looked forward to her vis­its by Sr. Theresa Frere, IHM, Co­or­di­na­tor of Min­istry to the Sick and Home­bound at St. Peter’s Church, who vis­ited her ev­ery two weeks to bring com­mu­nion and prayer and lots of reading ma­te­rial for her en­ter­tain­ment, and de­lighted very much in the fact that Sr. Theresa learned to de­liver the prayers in Rafaela’s na­tive Span­ish. This was al­ways the high­light of her week and she spent hours reading all the ma­te­rial that Sr. Theresa pro­vided.

Rafaela ar­rived in New York City with her daugh­ter in Dec. 1948, moved to Charles County in 1989, and quickly grew to love her new home.

Friends re­ceived from 10 a.m. un­til Mass of Chris­tian Burial at 11 a.m. on Mon­day, June 6 at St. Peter’s Catholic Church, 3320 St. Peter’s Drive, Wal­dorf, MD 20601. In­ter­ment to fol­low in the church ceme­tery. Ar­range­ments by Ray­mond Funeral Ser­vice in La Plata, MD.

Memo­ri­als may be made to Hospice of Charles County, 2505 Davis Road, Wal­dorf, MD 20603.

Alice “Elaine” Richards Jan­uary 15, 1925 – May 28, 2016 Alice “Elaine” (Holden) Richards of La Plata, MD en­tered into eter­nal life at the age of 91 on May 28, 2016.

She is sur­vived by her two daugh­ters, Mary Kather­ine (Kathy) Carro of Ocean View, DE, and Donna Marie McCarthy (Jack) of Stevensville, MD, in ad­di­tion to five grand­chil­dren and ten great-grand­chil­dren.

Elaine was the el­dest of seven chil­dren leav­ing sis­ter, June Bryant of Sal­is­bury, MD, and brother, Joseph Holden (Shirley), of St. Au­gus­tine, FL.

She was pre­ceded in death by her beloved hus­band of 53 years, John Robert (Johnny) Richards, par­ents, John and Gla­dys (Robert­son) Holden, sis­ters and brother, Char­lotte Go­er­ing, Mary Jane Fe­ick­ert, Joan Han­cock, and Wil­liam (Billy) Holden.

Elaine worked for the U.S. Gov­ern­ment for over 30 years and re­tired in 1985; she and Johnny both en­joyed many se­nior club ac­tiv­i­ties with the Po­tomac Heights Leisure Club and St. Charles Se­nior Ci­ti­zen Club.

For many years, Elaine was one of the most reli­able and dedicated vol­un­teers at Civista Hos­pi­tal’s Same Day Surgery in La Plata, and en­joyed weekly Bingo games where many times she was asked to “call.” But, with­out a doubt, Elaine’s heart be­longed to her church and the Dis­calced Carmelite Nuns of the Carmel of Port To­bacco. No re­quest of the good nuns ever went unan­swered and Elaine’s car was of­ten seen tool­ing down the high­way on one er­rand or an­other. Even “Peter Pan” couldn’t help but be im­pressed by all her trav­els on Mt. Carmel’s be­half.

Elaine was not only a good and lov­ing wife and mother, but in many ways, a play­mate to her ten grand­chil­dren, and, to the de­light of her grand­chil­dren, seemed never to grow up.

Fol­low­ing a pri­vate Mass of Chris­tian Burial, Elaine will be in­terred next to Johnny in Mt. Carmel on Thurs­day, June 2.
