Miriam M. Wentz, 96, formerly of Lineboro and Hampstead, died Wednesday, June 11, 2014, at College Manor Assisted Living in Lutherville.

Born May 9, 1918, in Lineboro, she was the daughter of the late Spencer L. Wentz and Mary Catherine Snyder Wentz.

She grew up on the family farm on Lineboro Road. She was a 1935 graduate of Manchester High School.

She peddled eggs and produce in the Park Heights area of Baltimore for 30 years. In retirement, she mowed lawns, took friends to medical appointments, visited shut-ins, transported quilts and lap robes to nursing homes and veterans centers and never missed the lacrosse games of her great-nephew.

She was a member of Lazarus Lutheran Church in Lineboro where she taught Sunday School and Luther League and belonged to the Missionary Society and Church Women. She also attended meetings of the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Hampstead.

She was a member of the Triple Valley Homemakers Club and Hampstead and Manchester senior centers. She loved word search puzzles, bingo and the Baltimore Orioles. She enjoyed helping others.

She was predeceased by sisters Kathryn W. Sieverts, Ruth W. Rademaker and Reba W. Brink; a brother, George A. Wentz; and a nephew, David W. Hines.
