|Schmidt, Gloria Jean
Birth: 1960-04-09 in Cheverly, Maryland
|Gloria Jean (Jeanne) Schmidt 49, of Great Mills, Maryland died at St. Mary's Hospital, Leonardtown, MD on Friday, November 20, 2009. After a couple of months battling cancer, Jeanne went home to the Lord. Her boys, husband, mother, sister and all the family and so many friends were there to see her off.|
Born April 9, 1960 in Cheverly, MD she was the daughter of Gloria Bolten Summerfelt of Annapolis, MD and the late James Summerfelt.
Jeanne was a fantastic mother to four boys and patient loving wife. She was raised in Lanham and went to Duval High School. At the age of 23, she married Joseph Albert Schmidt in San Diego, CA in 1983. She gave birth to her first son at NAS Jacksonville and her next three boys at NAS Patuxent River. As a Navy wife she had to endure many months as a single parent, including giving birth to all her boys while her husband was out at sea, and never once complained, she simply did what was needed to be done. Jeanne spent ten years as a traveling Navy wife and mother living in various navy towns. She and her family settled in for the next twenty years living in Great Mills. She was devoted to her boys. For ten years she was a teacher's aide while they attended Little Flower School in Great Mill, MD and then worked to help support the budget so they could attend St Mary's Ryken. She truly enjoyed the many moments with the families we've met and have known through out the years the boys played sports and attended school. She was the best known as a lacrosse mom. Her favorite moments were with family and friends at games and holiday events. Getting together with good people anytime was her favorite time of the year. Jeanne had the most incredible inner strength given to her by the Lord God. She faced personal challenges through her life with the bravery and grit of a fighting sailor. She passed that attribute to her boys.
Surviving in addition to her mother Gloria Bolten Summerfelt of Annapolis, MD is her husband Joseph Albert Schmidt, four sons; Joseph James Andrew Schmidt, Justin Michael Schmidt, Bryant Steven Schmidt and Brett Ryan Schmidt all of Great Mills, MD, a sister; Linda Huffman of Bowie, MD, two brothers; Steve Summerfelt of Arnold, MD and Keith Summerfelt of Gambrils, MD.

Jeanne and her family love the Lord Jesus Christ. Whenever life got tough we reached for the Lord's prayer and remembered Romans 8:28; "We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose."

|Roland, Catherine Viola
Birth: 1926-12-29 in Hughesville, Maryland
|Catherine Viola Lynch Roland, 82 of Lusby, MD formerly of Valley Lee, MD died November 20, 2009 at Solomons Nursing Center.|
Born December 29, 1926 in Hughesville, MD she was the daughter of the late Walter C. and Bessie M. Lynch.
She was born in a log cabin just outside of Hughesville, MD. the family later moved to Berry Rd in Waldorf, MD, where she lived until her marriage to Paul Roland in December 1951. Paul and Catherine met through their mutual love of bowling. Both were on area leagues. Catherine was proud of her roles as a wife and mother. She worked alongside of Paul in their occupation as tenant farmers raising tobacco in St. Mary's County, MD since 1960. Neither she or her husband had graduated from high school and she made it her goal to ensure her children did. Mrs. Roland would later achieve that goal for herself obtaining her GED.
Her children gave her a class ring, which she wore until her death. After she could no longer work in the tobacco fields, Mrs. Roland got jobs as a companion to elderly people, continuing until shortly after she and Paul moved in with their children in1985. Mrs. Roland's other and foremost love was God. Until her later years when her arthritis made it too difficult, Mrs. Roland regularly attended church. She was an active member of the women's group, the altar guild and the choir. She loved the fellowship of the groups, including working church dinners. As a member of the altar guild (past president), she wanted every detail perfect for worship services and especially loved the decorating of the church for Christmas and Easter.
Family received friends on Sunday, November 22, 2009 for Catherine's Life Celebration; a Funeral Service was conducted on Monday, November 23, 2009 in St. George's Episcopal Church with Reverend Greg Syler officiating.
