|Gam, Frances Jameson
Birth: 1918-10-16 in Bryantown, Maryland
|On March 5, 2011, Frances Jameson Gam of Charlotte Hall, MD, a member of the “Greatest Generation,” left this world, succumbing to a lengthy struggle with leukemia. Born on October 16, 1918 in Bryantown, MD, she was the daughter of the late James A. and Catherine Jameson. |
Mrs. Gam was an Administrative Accountant for the Department of the Army, beginning her career in 1935 and retiring in 1970 after 35 years of service.
Frances was preceded in death by her husband “John,” who passed away in 1977.
Best described as a truly strong willed person who approached every challenge, “with the good Lord’s help,” Frances was always the one her family could rely on, no matter the reason or the hour of the night. Her skill for baking the world’s best gingerbread houses cannot be duplicated because Frances’ secret ingredient was her love for those she made these special items for.
Even after becoming ill, Frances insisted on remaining independent. Things such as push mowing her lawn after reaching her late eighties and her love of gardening are just examples of her belief in hard work. Her later years were spent caring for and visiting with her older sister Clara until Clara’s death in 2007.
Mrs. Gam’s pride and joy were her two great-nephews, Michael F. McGuigan of Waldorf and John C. McGuigan of Charlotte Hall. Their lives and family were in her words, “My life’s blessing.” Her love, strength and influence will be remembered and truly missed by all.
A grave side service will be conducted on Saturday, March 12, 2011 at 11am at St. Mary’s Catholic Church Cemetery, 13715 Notre Dame Place, Bryantown, MD 20617.

|Shick, Margaret Lucille
|Margaret Lucille (Burch) Shick of St. Clements Shores and formerly of Washington DC and Falls Church, VA passed away on March 4, 2011 at her residence. |
She was the only child of the late William Early Burch of Washington, DC and Florence Wandel Burch of Philadelphia, PA. Mrs. Shick was born at the old Sibley Hospital in DC on February 3, 1922. Her paternal grandparents were Jubal A. Burch of Charlotte Hall, MD and Helen Elizabeth Tennyson of Clements, MD.
She graduated from McKinley (Tech) High School and Strayer Business College in 1942. After graduation from Strayer, she was employed by the Immigration and Naturalization Service of the Department of Justice. She was soon transferred to the Criminal Department of the Justice Department as a secretary to two special assistants to the Attorney General and several agents of the FBI. Mrs. Shick was in charge of an office force for the above. She recalled working for months, preparing for a case involving 20 defendants. After all the work getting ready for this case, the judge passed away in his sleep. The case never went to trial. When the United States entered World War II, the INS was moved to Philadelphia. She stayed with the service and lived with relatives there. She met her future husband there.
When the war was over, the INS returned to Washington, DC. On January 1, 1944, she and John Shick returned to Washington, DC and were married on January 2, at Brookland Methodist Church.

The Shicks were hands-on parents and attended high school games almost daily. She remembered attending a soccer game with one child in one county and traveling to a basket ball game in a different county with another. When their children were educated, Margaret and John moved to St. Mary’s Co., MD. They chose this area because they were familiar with the location. Her ancestors helped settle the territory, having a tobacco farm in Charlotte Hall, where the McKay’s store is located today. She was an active member of St. Paul’s UMC in Leonardtown and helped in the Fishes and Loaves, the soup kitchen. Mr. and Mrs. Shick loved to travel and toured both the U.S and abroad.
