Obituary of Ida May Laynor

Ida May Laynor, 83, of Ocean Pines, passed away on Thursday, December 27, 2018 at the Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin.  Born in Elkridge, MD, she was the daughter of the late Charles Victor Laynor and Elizabeth Getty Laynor.


Ida retired from the US Defense Mapping Agency and moved to Ocean Pines, where she resided for the past 26 years.  Ida was a faithful servant of the Atlantic United Methodist Church, where she frequently volunteered.  Ida was known for her rum cakes which were sold by the slice at church bazaars.  She never uttered a cross word in her entire life and happily opened her heart and home to anyone in need.  Ida was a baseball expert and never missed watching an Orioles game, even those that lasted until 3am in the 18th inning.


Ida is survived by a cousin, Roberta G. Laynor of Edgewater, MD; a brother, William A. Laynor of Spokane, WA; several nieces and nephews, including, Lois A. Anderson, Patricia P. Mattern, Linda A. Minor, Marian L. Crutchfield, James T. Smithson, Charles F. Smithson, Joseph M. Laynor, and Timothy E. Laynor.


A Celebration of Her Life will be held on Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 12 noon at the Atlantic United Methodist Church, 105 Fourth Street in Ocean City with Pastor Patty Frick officiating.  A graveside memorial service will also be held on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at Meadowridge Memorial Park in Elkridge, MD.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her memory to Atlantic United Methodist Church, 105 4th St., Ocean City, MD 21842.


Arrangements are in the care of Holloway Funeral Home, PA, 501 Snow Hill Road, Salisbury, MD 21804.  Please visit to express condolences to the family.
