Mary Louise Hann Alexander

WESTMINSTER, MD.—Mary Louise Hann Alexander, 96, of Westminster, Md., passed away on November 19, 2021, at Carroll Lutheran Village. Born on July 25, 1925, in Baltimore, Md., she was the daughter of the late Edward and Ethel Simpson Stallknecht. Twice married, she was the beloved wife of the late Russell R. Hann Sr., and the late Harry Alexander.

Years ago, Mary worked as a secretary for a defense contractor, and later in life she worked as a professional watercolor artist, well known for her paintings of the work boats and watermen of the Chesapeake Bay. She raised her family in Baltimore County, Maryland, then retired with her husband Russell to the Northern Neck. She was active at Fairfield’s United Methodist Church where fellow parishioners competed for her delicious pound cakes. Mary Lou loved to sing harmony and often said if she is reincarnated, she wants to come back singing bass.

Surviving her are children, Russell R. Hann Jr., C. Janine Ruby and Patricia Hann; seven grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren.

She was predeceased by siblings, Edward Stallknecht and Winifred Stallknecht Murray; and grandson, Andrew Hann.

A celebration of Life was held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, December 1, at Fairfield’s United Methodist Church, 14741 Northumberland Highway, Burgess. Interment followed at Fairfields United Methodist Cemetery with a reception in the Church Hall. 

A visitation was held at the church one hour prior to the service. A visitation also was held from 1-3 p.m., Tuesday, November 30, at Currie Funeral Home, Kilmarnock.
