Mary Agnes Cordle, 94, of Falmouth died November 4 after having suffered a major stroke.

The daughter of Mary and Leonard Eichner, she was born in Brooklyn, New York.

She married Edgar Cordle, a US Navy World War II veteran, in 1946. During his declining years she was her husband's committed caregiver; he died in 2009.

Ms. Cordle worked in secretarial and retail positions and eventually advanced from bank teller to assistant vice president of a bank in Woodhaven, Queens.

She served as president of the Woman’s Savings and Loan Association, an organization created to celebrate the achievements of women in the banking industry.

As a faithful evangelical Christian for many decades of her life, she supported her church with donations of her time and money.

After retirement, Ms. Cordle and her husband moved from New York to Citrus Spring, Florida, and lived there for 29 years. In 2017 she relocated to Falmouth, as a widow, to be closer to her children, moving into a nearby assisted living facility where she maintained an active lifestyle. During the past four years she had started painting again and created a number of pieces during this time period.

She leaves a sister, Mildred Umstetter; two children, Patricia Beckenhaupt and Kevin Cordle; six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

She will be buried Monday, November 16, alongside her husband at Florida National Cemetery.
