Doris Ann Cartzendafner, 79, died, surrounded by loving family on February 15, 2017 at Hooper House hospice care in Forest Hill, MD. She was born on May 27, 1937 to the late Lewis Edward Crumpacker and Evelyn Doris Crumpacker(nee Legg). The eldest of 3 children, she was raised in Union Bridge, MD. Ann graduated from Western Maryland College in 1959, and after moving to Bel Air with her husband David, she taught home economics for 15 years at the Bel Air High School. Always drawn to the road less traveled, Ann retired from teaching to follow her passion, and created her own business, The Glass Place. She worked at home as a stained glass artisan for the next 30 years, designing and crafting beautiful works of art in glass, with David, until they retired. Ann was a member of the Bel Air United Methodist Church for over 40 years. She participated in the renovation of the Mt. Carmel chapel, and enjoyed the fellowship she found there. She worked as a volunteer in mission, and traveled with the VIM group to Russia and to the Rosebud reservation in S.D. She was a member of the United Methodist Women, and actively participated in the annual Gingerbread Factory bazaars. Ann loved to travel and had a gift for meticulously planning the many trips she shared with family and friends to beautiful locales throughout the country. Her favorite spaces; Theodore Roosevelt N.P. in N.D., Big Bend N.P. and the "bluebonnet country" around Austin, TX. She had a special affection for the southwest, especially Sedona, AZ, and Monument Valley, UT. She is survived by her daughter, Lisa A. Cartzendafner of Bel Air, MD, by her sister and her husband, Susan C. Pfoutz and Thomas D. Pfoutz of Westminster, MD, and by her brother and his wife L. Edward Crumpacker and Christine Mangan of Clearbrook, VA. She is further survived by her niece Evelyn S. Pfoutz of Westminster, MD, and by many dear friends. Ann was predeceased by her nephew Thomas Edward (T.C.) Crumpacker and by her beloved husband David M. Cartzendafner, to whom she was married for 53 years. Her memorial service will be held at the Evans Funeral Chapel, in Forest Hill, MD, on Saturday, March 4, at 11a. A luncheon will follow at the BAUMC at 21 Linwood Ave in Bel Air.
