Obituary

Drusilla Maynard Wolking, a resident of Gambrills, Annapolis, Riva and College Park, died September 5. She was born Jan. 7, 1929, in St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore, to Drusilla Blakeney Maynard and Leslie Maynard of Gambrills. Drusilla graduated from Arundel High School in June 1945 at the age of 16. In September of that same year, she began teaching third grade, which she did for three years. She started substitute teaching in Prince George's County in 1953, and then became principal's secretary at University Park Elementary in Hyattsville and then Benjamin Tasker Middle School in Bowie. After retiring from the Prince George's County School System in 1989, she worked as a receptionist for the House Judiciary Committee of the Maryland State Legislature. She loved doing things with the family, especially when they were all together. Her pleasures through the years were water skiing, bowling, summers in Ocean City, cruising the seas, and most of all traveling throughout the beautiful United States in her and her husband's motor home. She was preceded in death by her brother, F. Alan Maynard. She is survived by her husband, Thomas S. Wolking, whom she married June 18, 1949; two children, Drusilla Rynarzewski and husband Paul of Las Vegas, NV, and Thomas M. Wolking Sr. and wife Glenna of Gambrills; two siblings, James Leslie Maynard and wife Fran of Florence, SC, and Jean Riedel and husband Jack of Tega Cay, SC; sister-in-law, Carol Maynard of Gambrills; seven grandchildren, Christina Fritz and Matthew Nichols of Odenton, Heather Roe and husband James of Lusby, Thomas M. Wolking Jr. and Wayne Fastnaught Jr. of Glen Burnie, Kimberly Burk and husband Kenneth of Glen Burnie, and Adam Rynarzewski of Las Vegas, NV; and three great-grandchildren, Lyssa Horton of Inwood, WV, Catherine Roe of Lusby and Kenneth Burk IV of Glen Burnie.
