      Eleanor Dosh

      Eleanor Trapnell Hilleary Dorsey Dosh, 91, of Catonsville and Epping Forest, died of heart failure March 31 at Bon Secours Hospital in Baltimore.

      Mrs. Dosh, who was known as "Polly," was born in Montclair, N.J., the daughter of Joseph Trapnell Jr. and Laura Virginia Kennedy. She was a member of one of the First Families of Virginia, and was a descendant of Elizabeth Marshall, sister of Chief Justice John Marshall (1755-1835).

      She attended St. Mary's Junior College in Raleigh, N.C., and graduated from Hollins College. In 1936 she was included in the executive training class at the former Hutzler's department store and was in charge of the telephone home shopping service.

      In 1941 she resigned to marry John Alexander Hilleary of a colonial Prince George's County family. That marriage ended in divorce.

      In 1950, she became a supervisor with Rice's Bakery in Baltimore, where she managed 23 bake shops and supervised 125 sales persons.

      In April 1963 she married Hammond P. Dorsey of Jacksonville, Fla. In June of that year Mr. Dorsey died suddenly while working on his uncle's 1,000-acre farm, Oak Hill, in what is now Columbia in Howard County.

      In 1965 Mrs. Dosh was hired as a social worker in old age assistance in Howard County, retiring in 1974. She then obtained a real estate license and worked as an associate with the former Henderson Realty Co. in Catonsville.

      After being a widow for 13 years, she married Dr. Stanley Hyde Dosh, a professor at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry for 39 years. He died in 1989.

      Mrs. Dosh enjoyed bridge and travel to Europe via cruise ships, and to Panama and Bermuda. An ardent environmentalist, she granted an easement on the 23-acre Dorsey property adjacent to the Baltimore National Cemetery to the Maryland Environmental Trust in 1994.

      She was a lifelong member of the National Society Colonial Dames 17th Century, the Daughters of the American Revolution Soldier's Delight Chapter and the Jefferson County Historical Society and the Catonsville Woman's Club.

      Surviving are two sons, John Thornton Hilleary and Scott Trapnell Hilleary of Catonsville and Gerrardstown, W.Va.

      Services will be at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow at St. James' Episcopal Church, routes 2 and 258, Lothian, with burial in the church cemetery. Arrangements are by Hardesty Funeral Home.
