Beloved wife, mother, sister, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, teacher, mentor and friend.

She is survived by one brother Donald who lives in Florida. She attended Riverdale Elementary and Hyattsville High School. She worked for the US Postal Service prior to her marriage to Robert Kline. After her children, Dale and Jean, began attending school, she started a very long career of volunteerism in the PG County Public Schools. Including a volunteer position as the Principal/Parent Coordinator. Once her children had graduated, she began working as a legal secretary, from which she retired a few years ago.
