Nora Millhouser, 75, who taught in the Prince George’s County public school system from the late 1960s until her retirement about 1980 from Parkdale High School in Riverdale, died April 15 at Gilchrist Hospice in Towson, Md. She had liver cancer.

Nora Byerly was a Laurel native and a graduate of Northwestern High School in Hyattsville. She was a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and received a master’s degree in education from George Washington University.

She was an Ellicott City resident. Her hobbies included bridge.

Her first marriage, to Tom Bolita, ended in divorce. A son from that marriage, Christopher Bolita, died in 2007. She had donated a kidney to her son because of an inherited condition that caused his kidneys to fail.

Survivors include her husband of 10 years, Richard Millhouser of Ellicott City; two children from her first marriage, Robin Daugherty of Laurel and Daniel Bolita of Waldoboro, Maine; three stepchildren, Amy Dupuis of Hillsborough, N.J., Nancy Small of Ellicott City and Andrew Millhouser of Baltimore; and two granddaughters.
