In memory of
Ed Pelling
On December 28, in Annapolis, Ed passed away after 96 years of active life. Beloved husband of the late Dorothy Sebree Pelling. Ed was born in Virginia in February, 1922. He was raised on a farm in Snow Hill, Greene County, North Carolina. After 17 years of farm life, he moved to Washington to take college classes and took a job with the Department of Agriculture. He enlisted in the Marines on December 8, 1941, and served in the Virgin Islands, in several Pacific campaigns, in the landing at Okinawa, and the occupation of Japan. After promotion to sergeant, he was discharged in 1946, and returned to the Department of Agriculture. In 1943, while on a train to Texas for a training stint, he met Dorothy Sebree, a music teacher working in Cumberland, Maryland. They married shortly thereafter, and happily shared the next 65 years. Ed lived in Cheverly, and owned a historic house in Berryville, Virginia. In 1981, he retired to the Providence neighborhood of Annapolis, on Chesapeake Bay. He and his wife loved fishing and boating there. He was a very kind, but also practical man, who knew how to grow his own food, raise animals, repair equipment, thread pipes, rewire his house, and give experienced advice when asked. A second father to his nephew, Ed was also a great friend to the nephew's wife and children. Ed is survived by four generations of nieces and nephews. Memorial services will be held on Thursday, January 3rd at 3:00pm at Ginger Cove, 4000 River Crescent Drive, Annapolis. He will rest in Arlington Cemetery, with his late wife and near his nephew and his wife. Please give donations in lieu of flowers to Maryland Public Television, www.mpt.org or the Veterans of Foreign Wars, www.vfw.org. An online guest book is available at www.johnmtaylorfuneralhome.com .
