Mary Kallmyer

July 20, 1926 — June 26, 2019

Mary Theresa Kallmyer, 92, passed away on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, at the WMHS Regional Medical Center.

Born on July 20, 1926, in Frostburg, she was the daughter of the late W. Jennings and Margaret (Byrnes) Shertzer.

Mrs. Kallmyer was a faithful lifetime member of Divine Mercy Parish St. Michael’s Catholic Church.  She was a graduate of the 1944 Beall High School Class and the Ursuline Academy.  She worked for Prudential Insurance company until the birth of her children.

When healthier, Mary Theresa loved to walk a mile each way every day to daily Mass at St. Michael’s and people would tell her they could set their clocks by her as she passed by their homes.  She loved to bake, and always had something freshly made for anyone who might stop by.  Her grandchildren particularly loved her famous sugar cookies and her summer refresher cake.

Surviving are son, Roch Kallmyer and wife Linda, Ellicott City; 11 grandchildren; 14 great grandchildren; daughters-in-law, Patricia Kallmyer, Sparks, and Elizabeth Kallmyer, Cockeysville; brother, James P. Shertzer and wife Judy.
